New Providence and Paradise Islands Sights

Prince George Wharf

  • Transportation Site (Airport, Bus, Ferry, Train)

Updated 07/12/2013

Fodor's Review

The wharf that leads into Rawson Square is the first view that cruise passengers encounter after they tumble off their ships. Up to a dozen gigantic cruise ships call on Nassau at any one time, and passengers spill out onto downtown, giving Nassau an instant, and constantly replenished, surge of life. Even if you're not visiting via cruise ship, it's worth heading to Festival Place, a Bahamian village–style shopping emporium. Here you'll find booths for 45 Bahamian artisans; live music; Internet kiosks; vendors selling diving, fishing, and day trips; scooter rentals; and an information desk offering maps, directions, and suggestions for sightseeing. You can also arrange walking tours of historic Nassau here.
