Nassau on our own, is it really dangerous?

Jump to last reply

We're going on a cruise that stops at Nassau, Bahamas. I don't usually care for tours and prefer to exploring on my own. I was looking into renting a car (yes, I know they drive on the left) and driving around, stopping at nice beaches along the way.

I was reading the cruise forum and some people kept repeating the beaches that are not hotel beaches can be dangerous and not do go there, you can be robbed and so on. Anybody here has the same experience? Is it really dangerous to explore New Providence Island on your own and we should stick to the hotel beaches?

I'm going with my husband and young daughter. We've been to Aruba, Brazil, Mexico, among other beach places and always drove around...

Thanks much!
