Fun, Duty-Free Shopping in Nassau, Paradise Island

Welcome to the ultimate shopper’s duty-free paradise! In January 1992, the Bahamian government took away the import duty on 11 categories of luxury goods, which means that you have the chance to save up to 35% on brand name merchandise and bring back duty-free items (up to a certain limit).

Paradise Island really does have it all. Shop for authentic Bahamian straw goods at the beloved Straw Market; browse the high-profile brands at Atlantis’ Crystal Court Shops; and don’t forget to find the perfect souvenir from Marina Village. Our many eclectic shopping are sure to make any fashionista’s day.
