Leave the center of Nassau and take a short cab ride to The Daiquiri Shack, you wont be disappointed. Amazing daiquiris made with fresh fruit and tons or rum. Pick from three freshly cut fruits and WOW, what an amazing cocktail, refreshing too!

Loved it! Have been there almost every day this week for my fresh fruit daiquiri! I'm going back tonight to compare their Miami Vice to WestWind 2's Miami Vice! They're super friendly and fun too! Prices are great too!
