Shopping and Markets

A spot of retail therapy

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Bahamas holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

The Bahamas has plenty of shopping opportunities available, whether you’re after a duty-free bargain or a traditional keepsake. Nassau’s Bay Street is the Bahamas’ premier shopping mecca, lined with pretty, pastel-coloured shops, cafés and restaurants. Meanwhile, Port Lucaya Marketplace offers the very best shopping, entertainment and dining experience on Grand Bahama Island, with boutiques, duty-free shops, bars and plenty of handicraft vendors for the ultimate souvenir hunt. Set amongst the white sandy beaches and with a true taste of tradition, it’s perfect for a casual afternoon wander or vibrant night out.  What’s more, Port Lucaya has a plethora of dining choices waiting to tantalise your taste buds. From the gourmet Luciano’s Restaurant for the discerning connoisseur to Café Breeze for a more relaxed, local experience and even a Coconut and Daiquiri stand to quench your thirst, the marketplace has something to suit every craving. 

Bahamas Craft Centre

Ideal for those looking to take home a Bahamian handicraft or two, the Bahamas Craft Centre is bursting with authenticity, tradition and artisan magic. Located just across from Marina Village on Paradise Island, you’ll find a treasure trove of conch shell jewellery, wood carvings, Junkanoo art, straw work and souvenirs. With around 100 stalls and bursting with a unique Bahamian vibe, you’ll need to learn the art of bartering before venturing to the centre. Don’t be afraid: negotiating is part of the fun and you could grab yourself a bargain to be proud of.
