An Overview of Nassau

For a long time, Nassau was the port city meant for all things prude and business. However, now, it has flourished enough and stands proud as the largest island as well as the capital of the Bahamas. It is a trending cultural centre which offers historic landmarks and museums, food tours, a rum distillery and microbrewery, and waterfront resorts for every budget. It is the most favourite tourist destination for travellers around the world and if you are not travelling by Cruise, we would suggest you to definitely put up a base in Nassau since it packs in most of the action and the fun the Bahamas is known for. The booming Nassau is also accompanied by its satellite, The Paradise Islands.

History of the Place

Are you inclined towards knowing each and every detail that goes behind the making of a place you are visiting? Congratulations, you have come to the right place. Well, about Nassau, let’s see. Nassau was founded by the British in the midst of the 17th century, but by the 18th century, it became pretty famous for the notorious pirates who took refuge in this island. Popularly known as the Republic of Pirates, Nassau has an intriguing and thrilling backstory. The pirates, at one point in time, claimed the islands for themselves and made almost each and every civilian-run off from there. Blackbeard, (history’s most famous pirate who’s real name was Edward Teach) was their leader. Though, there is nothing more of him or his accomplices left in here, signs of them have been preserved for tourists and travellers to see and explore.
