Nassau, Bahamas: Favorite NON Tourist places -- Or where Locals might also go?
Nassau, Bahamas: Favorite NON Tourist places -- Or interesting or good places where Locals might also go?
I'll be in Nassau, Bahamas on Friday 4/15/05 from 1:00am to 7:00pm.
(Have been here once before, and we did some of the sightseeing stuff such as Atlantis.)
I'm now on a hunt for:
1. NON Tourist spots -- where Locals might go and yet be also interesting or good to visit for us.
2. Maybe Tourist Spots -- but where a Local feels comfortable enough to be a tourist, too!
Do you have any favorite non-touristy spots you like to go here -- or maybe a spot you like to go where you don't "just" feel like a a tourist?
There are two places that come to mind within a reasonable distance. The first is arawak Cay's Fish Fry - you can grab lunch at one of the dozen or so local restaurants that make up this "" Heritage village".
Here's a menu for one of the spots to give you some idea. http://www.bahamasgo.com/twinbrothers.htm
Additionally, the fish shacks at Potters Cay, under the bridge on the Nassau side, are a wonderful way to hang out with the locals and get the catch of the day and a cold Kalik. Maybe even sit in on a good game of dominoes. From port, just ask the cabbie to take you to Potters Cay.
For just hanging out for a drink, I like the Green Parrot at Hurricane Hole marina (Paradise Island). It's the "boating"crowd, but much easier to relax with then the mulitudes of tourist elsewhere.
Here's a nice site that might give you some clues. http://www.bahamasfilm.com/nassau/
