Get Money-Saving Savvy in Nassau

Posted March 31, 2009 by Kate Hamman

Bahamas-Nassau-CompassPoint-DEF As part of the Bahamas, Nassau is a great tropical escape for anyone seeking fun in the sun. Plus, you can learn about the island's pirate history at a museum, kick back with a frozen drink at a relaxing bar, and dine at a restaurant overlooking the water—all without having your booty plundered.

Pirates of Nassau: Once serving as a home to the infamous swashbuckler Blackbeard, Nassau has a history riddled with many a yo-ho-ho and a lot of buried treasure. Come discover what life was like as a pirate at this interactive museum. Here, you can stow away aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, encounter the infamous Blackbeard as he claims your ship, and discover why the Golden Age of Piracy (1690 through 1720) ended. You'll also have the opportunity to view artifacts recovered from this short, but memorable time in history. Admission costs $12.

Travellers' Rest: In the last thirty years, celebrities such as Sean Connery and Mick Jagger as well as weary travelers like you have kicked back and enjoyed the island pace at this restaurant and bar. The fresh banana daiquiris will melt away the life you've left behind as you sit on the outdoor terrace overlooking the water and palm trees. Close to the airport, the Travellers' Rest makes a great stop on your way to or from your vacation.

Compass Point dining: This brightly colored restaurant may be part of Compass Point Resort, but you don't have to be a guest to enjoy the international and island cuisine or the sweeping ocean views. Since dinner can be a bit pricey, lunch is the ideal time to enjoy a bite to eat. You can order several seafood options such as Bahamian Cracked Conch, or traditional items like hamburgers and turkey clubs.
