It's not our first time visiting the beautiful Island of the Bahamas. After our holidays in June 2013, we knew we would come back very very soon. Especially the local people are so kind, funny and extremely friendly. And as it happened we decided to get married here. So this trip was very special for us. Together with our close family members we stayed 3 nights in Paradise Island, which is amazing with such a nice Bahamian charm.
The city of Nassau is very nice but on the other side also very crowded with tourist because of the many Resorts (and more to come). Every day cruise ships dock on the harbor of Nassau and the streets of Nassau are filled with tourists. Which means; get some nice jewelry in one of uncountable jewelry stores side by side next to the high-end designer stores, Gift shops, drugstores and so on and so on... On our first evening we had dinner at the famous Poop Deck located at the harbor of Nassau. The food is so good there, you have to try the catch of the day, which is displayed right next to the bar. Order some traditional peas and rice on the side and have Guava Duff for dessert. End the day or begin the night ;-) with a Bahama Mama or Bahama Breeze Cocktail overlooking the sunset. Cheers!
Pretty colorful houses
Back to Paradise Island, as we spend most of the time there. It is connected to the island of New Province by two bridges that cross Nassau Harbor.
You have to see or stay in the Atlantis Resort, visit the Marina Village or have a blast in the Casino. During the day you can go to the water park, there are so many things to do. The Resort also has a lot of nice restaurants, like the Bahamian Club or Nobu - which are our favorite spots to eat.
We stayed in the Ocean Club (One&Only resorts), which has a partnership with the Atlantis Resort. Which means that you can enjoy full access to Atlantis during your whole trip. It has it's own private location close to the Atlantis. If you follow the James Bond Serie you will recognize the hotel entrance from Casino Royal. A few scenes where shot here.
On our way to Breakfast
Our view every morning
The Ocean Club is a place where refined elegance, luxurious amenities, and the discreet attentive service of a personal butler, 24 hours a day, are standard with every room, suite or villa. Share a drink with your beloved one (either shaken or stirred) at Dune's beachfront bar overlooking the beach. I totally fell in love with the stunning Versailles Garden and the Augustinian cloister from the 12th century, shipped piece-by-piece from France. Which are located at the resort.

For me the Bahamas are a dream vacation destination. There are only positive points to talk about.
