As the name suggests, this is where most of Nassau's main government buildings are located. A picturesque, Victorian-style square with a statue of Queen Victoria in the center, Parliament Square is every bit as regal as the name suggests: beautiful, lush palm trees surround the square, consisting of historic pink and white government buildings. This square is alive with history and is a great way to learn about the history of the Bahamas.
Heralded by many who visit as one of the best beaches in Nassau, Cable Beach is lucky to encompass crystal clear blue water, fine white sand and beautiful marine life. It is not uncommon for visitors here to swim with sea turtles or other friendly fish in the area — and the abundance of sea-life makes this beach a great spot for snorkeling. Cable Beach also offers a secluded location and unobstructed ocean views, as cruise ships dock on the other side of the island.
