With so many things to check out, it's hard to leave this place off your travel itinerary, isn't it?
One of the most frequented places in the Bahamas, Freeport is a practically mandatory stop for cruise travelers; no matter how the script is made, just one thing: this is an impressive city that doesn't disappoint its tourists. The second largest city in the country is the ideal place for those who want to have fun, discover a new culture and enjoy the best of nature.

capital of Bahamas, Nassau is the first place that comes to the minds of tourists when they think of getting to know the country located on the caribbean. The city is a mandatory stop for cruise travelers – especially those arriving from Florida, in the United States – and enchants all visitors with its charismatic and extremely welcoming people, which make the stay even better.
Blue Lagoon Island is one of Nassau's highlights. The island with warm and transparent waters is perfect for both those looking for fun and for those who just want to relax. On the island, tourists can play in the playground with kayaks, slides and paddle boats, swim with stingrays, dolphins and sea lions (but before getting in the water you need to take a class on how to interact with the animals), snorkel to see up close all the marine fauna and flora and, after so many activities, rest in a hammock watching the sea. Is there a better way to enjoy a day on a paradise island?
Very close to the city center, Junkanoo beach is one of the most popular places in the country for having easy access. The colorful houses by the sea, which draw attention for their beauty, combined with the turquoise and crystalline color of the waters make the scenario extremely interesting. With excellent infrastructure, the beach is quite safe, with showers, bathrooms, chair rentals and several options for drinks and seafood dishes.

Bay Street, Nassau's main thoroughfare, is lined with shops, restaurants, cafes and eateries; tourists who don't want to go home empty-handed can go there to shop, especially in duty-free shops, which are tax-exempt. Taking advantage of the walk, the region is full of historic buildings that mix architecture from the British colonial period with the tropical Caribbean style, in this way, it is a great place for those who like to take photos.
Nassau's food scene – from da most caribbean islands – is based on seafood, strong flavors and tropical fruits. For those who want to taste the traditional flavor of the country, the “cracked conch”, a dish made with sea snails, should be at the top of the list of foods to try.
One of the most isolated places, Dunmore Town is a city full of charm and the main city on Harbor Island, where tourists find a variety of activities, including shopping, walking and soaking up the Bahamas sun.
The city's postcard is Pink Sand Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas that draws attention for its pink sands – that's right, you didn't read it wrong. The coloring, the result of small pieces of shells and pink and red corals that mixed with the sand after being crushed by the waves, makes the place one of the most visited, especially for those who do not give up taking perfect photos during a trip. There you can also practice snorkeling and horseback riding – an activity chosen especially by couples who choose the destination as a honeymoon.
Another famous landmark in the region – and one that visitors cannot miss – is the “Lone Tree”, a large piece of solitary trunk that looks more like a sculpture in the middle of nature. Located on Bay Street, it has been there since 1992, when a hurricane hit the island. Definitely one of the best settings to take pictures.
Full of colorful gardens, fishing boats moored on its shore and the largest shopping center on Eleuthera Island, Rock Sound is a very impressive city and, of course, with unparalleled beauty. One of the most impressive places in the Bahamas cannot be left out of a list whose subject is the most beautiful cities in the country.
Ocean Hole is a world-renowned place located in the city. This seemingly bottomless “blue hole” is full of fish and turtles – caught and placed there by locals – that catch the attention of visitors who cool off in its waters, rumored to have healing powers. Fishing is not allowed, so, in addition to having fun with the animals, it is also possible to feed them within this true natural phenomenon.
Another Rock Sound attraction is the Winding Bay beach. Mainly frequented by locals, it is the ideal place for those who want to get to know the life of the locals better while relaxing and enjoying the tropical heat. As it is a beach that is rarely crowded, it is the perfect choice for those looking for tranquility, but make no mistake, as this is not an obstacle to not exploring the place; the crystal clear waters are ideal for snorkeling, so travelers can't forget their gear to check out what's underwater.
Since the subject is the beach, we can't get to know each other from Red Pond, which is not a beach, but a very visited lagoon in the city. Its name (“Red Lagoon”, in free translation) is because its soil was reddish for many years, but due to the influx of salt water this changed – and also brought a series of marine species to live in it.
