There’s just something romantic and magical about a cruise. Most ships offer their fair share of romance, but so do many of the ports of call. If your next cruise visits Nassau, Bahamas and you’re looking for some more romance in your vacation, check out our top 5 places for a romantic date in Nassau.
For the ultimate dinner out, book a reservation in advance for the Graycliff Restaurant. A historic, colonial-style mansion hosts this five-star dining experience where you’ll find continental cuisine with a Bahamian twist. This exquisite establishment doesn’t come cheap – it’ll be a total splurge, but it also comes with hand-rolled cigars, signature coffee and chocolate and a tour of the award-winning wine cellar (home to more than 250,000 bottles of wine). Reservations are strongly recommended and can be made at Graycliff Restaurant.
For an ultimate pampering experience on your date, visit one of the island’s world-famous spas for couples’ treatments. The world-famous Atlantis resort is home to Mandara Spa at Atlantis which features the ultimate in pampering treatments. Spanning over 30,000 square feet, including 2 private couples’ villas, this spa will help you relax and refresh together in the lap of luxury.
Ahhh, strolling on the beach, hand in hand with the one you love: That’s the stuff romantic movies are made of. Nassau has plenty of sugar-fine white sand beaches for you to enjoy together. Not only is this incredibly romantic, it’s usually free (or low cost)! Both Cabbage and Cable Beach – while beautiful – tend to be more crowded and a little less romantic. Check out local favorite Love Beach for some romantic time alone.
See the Sights Together
Nassau is flush with historical and famous sites for you to enjoy together. One of the most romantic and fun destinations on the list: the Ardastra Gardens Zoo and Conservation Center. You can stroll together though over five acres of gardens and you’ll see mammals (including Jaguars and Lemurs), birds and reptiles. Don’t miss their famous marching pink flamingo parade.
Get all those Black Friday shopping stories out of your mind. Shopping together in Nassau can be totally romantic and memorable. Enjoy the thrill of negotiation at the world-famous Straw Market to find handmade Bahamian crafts, gifts and souvenirs (especially straw items). Want to splurge and spoil yourselves a little bit? Hit the high end shops at both Atlantis and Paradise Island’s Marina Village. Or, for an extra dash of romance and spice, check out the local lingerie stores.
