yoga x carnival retreat
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.
With over 700 islands and 2,000 cays sprinkled across the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, the Bahamas can be kind of confusing without a guide. Lucky for you, we've got you covered.
The most popular islands you've probably heard of are New Providence, home to Nassau and Paradise Island, and Grand Bahama Island.
However, there are numerous other small islands that make up the Bahamas, and they're typically known as the Out Islands. These beautiful, more pristine islands are true gems in the Caribbean. The most popular tourist region in the Out Islands is the Abacos. But whether you stay on the mainlands or adventure to the Out Islands, you'll love every minute in the Bahamas.
Treasure Beach -Beach front Villa
You are invited to experience a little taste of Heaven at Nassau’s newest Luxury Beachfront Estate, Treasure Beach. Nestled in one of the most exclusive communities along the beautiful northwestern coast of New Providence Island , this island treasure is designed to embrace you in the arms of paradise. While staying at this beautiful 3 storey mansion, you will be enthralled by the crystal clear turquoise colored Bahamian waters, state of the art infinity swimming pool, breathtaking blue skies and white sandy beach that can be panoramically viewed from every room. Treasure Beach elaborately boasts on the first two floors, 5,500 sq. ft. of living space for you to exclusively enjoy. The balconies, 4,000 sq. ft. beach front patio with private powder-room and 40ft infinity pool are 'exclusively' for your use during your stay.
