Introducing New Providence
What New Providence lacks in size, it more than makes up for in energy, attitude and devil-may-care spirit. In fact, this 21-mile-long powerhouse of an island is a perfect fit for the type A tourist with money to burn. Plummet down a 50ft waterslide, puff on a hand-rolled stogie, place your bets on a high-stakes hand and carouse like a pirate into the wee hours – it’s all there for the grabbing. Even rejuvenation is high-energy, with Paradise Island and Cable Beach boasting some of the liveliest beaches around. But who’d expect less on an island 007 calls home?
But all is not lost for value-minded type Bs, who can escape the go-go party track with minimal effort. In Nassau, just a few blocks off Bay St, there are engaging museums, historic buildings and locally owned restaurants that are crowd-free and full of personality. Scenery hounds can head to the island’s western shores and hilltops as well as a few spots on Paradise Island. Those really wanting to disappear should make a beeline for the ferry terminals, where sailing jaunts, fishing trips and snorkeling cruises are only an impulse away.
