Nassau, Bahamas


Nassau is the largest city in the Bahamas and is the capital of the Bahamas. Nassau is one of the top destinations in the Caribbean and the city has a beautiful landscape with crystal clear beaches. Offshore coral reefs are popular for diving and snorkeling. The Bahamas is a member of the Commonwealth and it is an independent country northwest of the West Indies, located 50 miles south-east of the coast of Florida, USA and north of Cuba. The Bahamas are actually in the Atlantic, not in the Caribbean, yet sometimes the Bahamas are encompassed as being islands of the Caribbean.

These photos are from our first ever cruise, Disney Wonder Cruise to Bahamas in the second week of November 2010.
