The capital city of Nassau is the centre of trade, industry, communications and tourism of the Bahamas.

Ancient forts, pastel-coloured colonial architecture, duty-free shops, markets, restaurants, bars and casinos are some of Nassau’s attractions. Boating, sailing and fishing are best enjoyed in nearby Paradise Island, which is linked to Nassau by a bridge. It is a wealthy tourist’s haven, with luxurious beaches, elegant hotels, a world-class golf course, and the famous Atlantis Resort. Those looking for a taste of the region’s colonial architecture could visit the colourful residences in East End.

There are a number of residential communities being developed in Nassau. These include Coral Harbour, Adelaide, and Lyford Cay.
