Nassau on Jan 1

We'll be in Nassau on January 1st. I expect everything to be close but what about beaches? Can we still go to a beach somewhere? I've only been there twice and we stayed in the city and visited Atlantis so I'm not sure what to expect when we get there on a Holiday.

Ela, you've always got public beach access, even on a holiday. Just maybe no lifeguard or vendors. Where are you staying? If you can't walk to a beach, then you can easily get a taxi if you're near a hotel. Most shops will be closed, except for the occasional pharmacy or hotel shop. You'll also want to avoid downtown, as the NYE Junkanoo will have just taken place and the street a mess with people still milling about.

And you'll probably have the beach all to yourselves, as no self-respecting Bahamian swims during our "winter"!

I recommend visiting the Junkanoo Festival in downtown on New Year's Day morning. It is fantastic! I think it starts around 2am and runs to about 11am.
