New Providence is a slice of paradise in the Caribbean, where shimmering white-sand beaches meet turquoise-blue water. Once under British rule, the island still has many of its traditional pastel-colored colonial buildings dotting the landscape, especially in Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas. One of the must-see points of interest is the pink-hued Government House dating back to 1801.

Just west of Nassau lies Cable Beach, world-famous for its two and one-half-miles of crystalline waters. It's beyond perfect for a fun-in-the-sun getaway, plus it boasts great nightlife, casino action (it's home to 10 casinos offering great gaming action), golf and more. Diving is a big activity here, as are parasailing, banana boat rides, jet skiing and kayaking. Anglers will be eager to cast out for game fish like tuna, wahoo, kingfish and mahi-mahi. Try bargaining for deals and discounts with the street vendors selling goods. Fittingly, there is a pirate museum here, too, plus gardens, a zoo and conservation center.
