Part British, part Spanish and part West African gives Nassau Paradise Island a flavor all its own.
Just a few hundred miles off the southern coast of Florida, this Bahamian island has been home to everyone from freed slaves to rum runners to romantics and everyone in between. The island's charm has attracted the likes of 18th-centrury pirates and modern-day spies (Bond, James Bond), as well as served as a popular film location for such movies as ‘20,000 Leagues Under the Sea’ and ‘Splash’. Even the Beatles made a visit in 1965 to film their iconic movie, ‘Help!’
The Bahamas' attraction extends to outer space as well: Astronaut Chris Hadfield, when asked about his favorite view from the International Space Station, proclaimed “The most beautiful to me are The Bahamas, the vast glowing reefs of every shade of blue that exists.”
Today, the island is a favorite among holiday-goers looking to get away from it all. Luckily, there are always a host of travel deals and specials on offer to make getting away even easier.
Families will want to be on the lookout for family fun packages and offers.
During any given month, hotels are running kids stay and eat free specials, as well as special inducements for complimentary kids club visits and outings that appeal to kids of all ages. And when it comes to romance packages, there's more than enough to entice any couple. From spa credits to room upgrades, from discounted room and dining plans to free Internet and Wi-Fi, the Bahamas is for everyone. It also pays to book ahead. Holiday goers should be on the lookout for special savings for advance purchases and midweek bookings. Travelers may also wish to take advantage of special rates on air and deeply discounted room rates.
Repeat visitors who may be unsure of where they wish to stay next should take advantage of another great perk available to guests on the island–Nassau Paradise Island day passes. These passes let guests check out the facilities and amenities of multiple hotels and resorts across the island, as well as explore some of the island's best beaches, dining and a thrilling waterpark. These passes are the perfect accompaniment to a stay on Nassau Paradise Island, whether one is staying for just a day or for a week.
