Regardless of when you visit Nassau, you’ll find yourself in a steamy tropical paradise. The temperature in Nassau doesn’t vary much throughout the year; highs top out around an average of 30 degrees during the summertime (May to September). Hurricane season is something to consider when you’re planning a holiday to Nassau– though airfares tend to be cheaper from June to November; the fierce rains can wreak havoc on the islands and cause severe life-threatening damage to beaches and property.
Central Nassau can be managed on foot or aboard one of the popular and affordable local buses, called jitneys. The most popular jitney is the one that will take you to Cable Beach. You can board the bus daily for a short trip to arrive at the best resorts, beaches and golf courses.
Getting from the Airport to the City
Flights to Nassau land at Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS), formerly known as Nassau International Airport. The airport is located just 10 miles (16 km) west of the city. The easiest way to get to the centre after you land in Nassau is to make arrangements with your hotel. Many hotels have shuttles running to and from the airport, but you’ll have to set it up in advance. If you don’t feel like searching for your shuttle, it might be more convenient to hop in a taxi or rent a car. Just make sure your taxi’s meter is running or settle on a price before you leave the airport. Nassau is a major port for cruise ships, so you can always set sail on clear Caribbean waters.
