Travel: The Bahamas, Nassau

7:00:00 AM

I have been going to the Bahamas for years. I love the culture and the island, from its beautiful beaches to the colorful carnivals. And last but certainly NOT least the conch. Yummy!

When considering to visit the Bahamas and planning on doing independent touring (not relying on a company tour guide), do not rely on public transport. Rent a car, I like using Budget.

Now when considering an affordable hotel or resort with a lot of amenities, check out Sandy Port Beaches Resort and Hotel.

The Beautiful Pond
Honestly, this was the first time I have been there and I must say that I enjoyed it. The staff was friendly, helpful and had a wick sense of humor.

Sand Dollar Villa

The View from my room

I stayed in the Sand Dollar Villa and the view from my room was amazing. It had a kitchen, dinner room, living room, balcony and bed bath room. I loved siting on the balcony in the morning with a cup of coffee or in the evenings with a cup of tea.

Overall I give this hotel a 3.5 out of 5. I honestly didn't really fancy the room layout but with that view....who could complain.

 Now if you are looking for a delicious breakfast I highly recommend The Negril Café. Sure it's not a Bahamian restaurant, it's Jamaican but the food is to die for! I must say I was so impressed that I had to go meet the two wonderful chefs (they didn't want to be on camera :-).

I went to the Carmichael's location and the staff was super friendly and the restrooms were clean. We enjoyed the food so much that we had not only breakfast but lunch and dinner there too.

The Bamboo Shack

If you are looking for a quick lunch, try the island fast food joint, Bamboo Shack. This fast food joint serves their food 'chicken in a bag' style with a warm smile. The only thing I was disappointed in was the fact that they didn't make Conch burgers anymore, I was so looking forward to that.

Conch Snack

Anyways I ended up ordering the conch snack and it was delicious, served with fried conch, fries and coconut bread. And I know it isn't the healthiest thing in the world but I was on vacation!

Blue Sails
 The blue sail restaurant was walking distant from our hotel so we decision to go check it out and I'm glad we did. For $10 a pop they make a bad ass Mango Mojito, seriously! For my entire trip I partially lived there for that. The food was delicious, props to the chef!

The ambience was amazingly relaxing because it was right off the beach front and staff was super friendly and helpful.

One of Nassau's hot spots for hang out is the Fish Fry in downtown. I love going there to get my fresh conch salad. It's right on the beach with a lot of restaurants you can choose from.
