Just returned from Nassau, any questions?

We just returned from our second trip to Nassau and would try to answer questions that fellow travelers may have. I am putting together some trip notes and could email them if anyone would like a copy as soon as they are finished. Just let me know.

I would like to find a small hotel off the beatn track in Nassau, not to close from the city. Any suggestions?

Celine: Most of these places are either on Cable Beach and are fairly big, but good beaches, especially at the Nassau Beach Hotel where we stayed. There are quite a few on Paradise Island, connected by bridge or by ferry, but they are also big or not right on a beach. There is the South Beach area away from downtown and from the other two spots. The Makeba Beach Hotel has eight rooms, but I don't know anything about it or about the beach itself. <BR> <BR>Maybe you would be interested in nearby Eleuthera. It's easily accessable from Nassau. It's supposed to be quiet, clean and beautiful. Do a search on the Bahamas and check it out, it may be what you are looking for. <BR> <BR>Good luck!

Celine: <BR> <BR>Compass Point is an excellent resort off the beaten path in New Providence. I highly recommend it. Another, even more remote resort is the Clarion South Ocean Resort.

Did you visit the Atlantis Hotel? If so, how was the beach? My fiance and I are thinking of going there and a beautiful beach is very important to us. From the photos I couldn't tell very much. <BR>thank you

I too would like to see your trip notes. I leave Thursday AM for Nassau. Weather forecasts, available right now, call for rain on Thursday and Friday. I will be there with my 2 sons, ages 12 and 14. Any suggestions of rainy day activities?

Whew, I never expected this response. I am in the process of sending out copies of our trip notes and I'll get to you as soon as I can, honest. <BR> <BR>Erin: The beach as is everything else, is beautiful at Atlantis. It's not a cozy little place, it is big, but very nice. <BR> <BR>Tracy: We take along our passports as a habit, but for the Bahamas, all you need is a (raised seal) birth certificate and photo ID (driver's license) is a US or Canadian resident. <BR> <BR>Cindy: The kids and you will like Atlantis, a lot. <BR> <BR>Thanks, all, I'll get busy.

Hi Lee: <BR> <BR>I'm thinking about taking my daughter and her friends for spring break next year, hoping it will be lower key than Cancun or Jamaica, but still fun. I would love your trip notes. <BR>

Lee, <BR> It looks like you are getting a lot of request for your trip notes and I was wondering if it is too late to recieve your notes as well. I am going in the middle of July and I am trying to gather as much information as possible about Nassau, Cabble Beach and Paradise? Thank you. Amy
