Nassau is a major touristic spot in the Bahamas. Every year, tourists from everywhere on the planet meet up in Nassau for its perfect white sand beaches, its pristine waters and the casinos.

In Nassau, you will discover tons of things to do, such as swimming with the dolphins or the sharks, visiting great museums or visit an exhibition of trendy artists and painters. Here is one of the most popular attraction in the Bahamas.

Paradise Island is where you will discover Atlantis, a mega resort that feature a large marine habitat with over 75 millions liters (20 millions gallons) of salty and fresh water and more than 50 000 marine animals.

Moreover, many movies scenes are also shot in the resort, such as some major scenes of Casino Royale, the latest James Bond movie. The resort is also comprised of many brand stores, jewelries, a casino, many restaurants and ton of trendy bars.

The underwater tunnel in the Predator Lagoon is one of the most popular part of Atlantis.
