New Providence and Paradise Islands Sights

Fodor's Review

This open space at the western end of Bay Street overlooks the busy Nassau harbor and is the spot to catch local festivals and events, live music, and Bahamian art shows. It's also a good spot to mingle with locals who gather there after work. With 24-hour security, public restrooms, an interactive water feature that delights kids of all ages, and a host of small restaurants and bars nearby, this square, which pays tribute to a slave who fought for his freedom, is the start of a strategic redevelopment of downtown Nassau.
