New Providence and Paradise Islands Travel Guide

Getting Oriented

New Providence Island is generally referred to by the name of its historic capital city, Nassau. More than two dozen hotels and at least twice as many restaurants lure more than 2 million tourists to the city—and nearby Paradise Island and Cable Beach—annually. The heart of commerce and government and the bulk of the country's 300,000 people are crammed onto the 21-mile-by-7-mile island, less than 200 miles from Miami. Venturing outside the three main tourist areas will give you a better idea of true Bahamian life and a glimpse at some less-visited but worth-the-trek attractions.
