New Providence Island: Something for Everyone

New Providence Island has long been a favourite vacation spot for the trendy individual. Often called Nassau by mistake (Nassau is the nation’s capital) it has, for many years before commercial air travel began; housed the more affluent people of Europe. Though it is a small island, it is home to more than two thirds of the Bahamian population. Millions of dollars have been invested in the upkeep of the beaches in Nassau and Cable Beach.
