More About Flights to Nassau

Are you are looking to explore this beautiful Bahamian city and are searching for cheap flights to Nassau? If so, here are some tips for traveling to Nassau. 

What Time of Year is Best to Travel to Nassau?

Nassau’s weather is beautiful, with temperatures staying above 60 degrees year-round. For that reason many travelers prefer to visit Nassau during the winter months, so that they can escape their cold hometowns. However, the best time of year to travel to Nassau is from May to the November. There are less tourists because it is the rainy and hurricane seasons. But even with all the rain predictions, Nassau is still sunny 85% of the time.

What Should I Know About Booking a Flight to Nassau?

The Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau is the largest airport in the Bahamas and services charter airlines, most American airlines, and limited flights from London and Toronto. Visitors from the United States can choose to fly making only one stop from almost any city. However, if you are looking for a cheap non-stop flight, flights to Nassau from Miami is usually the best option.

Make sure when you are heading home that you pay attention to the fact that there are three different terminals. One is for charter and local flights, one is for international flights to the United States, and one is for international flights to all other destinations. 

What Transportation Options are There From the Nassau Airport?

When you arrive at Lynden Pindling International Airport, you can always rent a car. Avis, Dollar, Budget, Thrifty, Hertz, National, and Alamo are available at the airport. However, with the large amount of traffic and limited parking you may want to choose another transportation option. 

The two main options from the airport are taxi cabs and hotel shuttles. Taxis park outside of the airport waiting to take visitors to their destinations and offer affordable prices. There is a jitney bus system, but it does not make stops at the airport. Additionally, hotel shuttles are convenient, but not all hotels offer shuttles.

What Hotel Options Offer Shuttles From the Airport?

Many visitors in Nassau opt to walk or rent a moped as their main means of transportation while on the island. However, these aren't good means of transportation to and from the airport. With that in mind, it is always a good idea to stay at a hotel that offers an airport shuttle. 

Graycliff Hotel and Restaurant offers an airport shuttle and is only steps away from several area attractions. Although Graycliff is not on the beach, the guests can tour the wine cellar and visit the spa. The amenities add value beyond the convenience of the airport shuttle.

If you are looking to stay out on Paradise Island, the Atlantis Royal Towers offers an airport shuttle. Guests here enjoy full access to the Atlantis Resort, including use of the water park, casino, and multiple restaurants. 

What are Some Must-see Attractions While I'm in Nassau?

There are many great attractions and sites to see while visiting Nassau, and there are some you don’t want to miss. When you come to Nassau, you expect to see clear blue waters and white sandy beaches. So why not see the best beach? Cable Beach is a true gem with endless white sand and crystal clear water. If you are looking to spend a day at the shore, Cable Beach is a must-see.

With Nassau focusing on tourism, it should not surprise you that there are several tours and excursion visitors can take. However, if you are looking for the best tour, check out the Dolphin Encounter on Blue Lagoon Island. This world-famous tour is a once-in-a-lifetime experience where you will either swim with the dolphins or stand waist deep in the water and pet them. Where else do you get to interact with such magical creatures?

The Heritage Museum of the Bahamas is a great place for anyone wanting to take a look at Nassau’s rich history. This museum is full of artifacts that detail the historical stories from the past dating back to the 1400's. Truly a must-see for anyone interested in Nassau’s history.
