Awesome experience and people. A must do if you are in Nassau. A lot of the shops have the same thing, and use the same lines but there are a lot of hidden gems and great people. The wood carving alley is a must see,...More

This is a great place to get souvenirs. Don’t stand and have conversation though unless you intend to buy. They are aggressive in trying to make a sale.

The Straw Market is a fun way to grab some souvenirs. Great for anybody who likes to wheel and deal for a bargain.

This is the place to go for your inexpensive Bahama souvenirs. However, prepare to negotiate. Most prices are double what you need to pay. Also be prepared for tight cramped places and vendors who have a lot of the same stuff. I would say if...More

So, we went to the straw market, much like a flea market. They can be very demanding for you to buy from them. If you like that kind of atmosphere and like to negotiate prices, it can be fun. If you don't it can be...More

When walking around here it is overwhelming how many people talk to you and sell you merchandise. It’s a fun place to go, but you will hear a lot of “hey pretty lady” to get you to buy things

Not sure about the church, but I do recal there being one up the hill. If it's that one, it's less then a 10 min walk from the market.

As soon as you port there is a market. And you can walk off/on board all day if you like. Or grab a cab to the beach for $2 a person Atlantis is also $2-3 cab per person.
