Real Estate Properties in Nassau, New Providence
Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas. It lies on the island of New Providence, with neighboring Paradise Island accessible via Nassau Harbor bridges. A popular cruise-ship stop, the city has a hilly landscape and is known for beaches as well as its offshore coral reefs, popular for diving and snorkeling. It retains many of its typical pastel-colored British colonial buildings, like the pink-hued Government House.
The climate is temperate and the sandy beaches and scenery are beautiful. Although the city proper is comparatively small, suburbs and residential districts stretch far along the coast and into the interior.
Nassau is a tourist and international-banking centre. Domestic exports include crawfish (spiny lobster), other seafood, fruit and vegetables, rum, and crude salt. Nassau is reached by international sea or air routes and has local service to other islands.
