Besides a suntan, one of the best things to bring home from The Bahamas is seashells. The shells both on the beach and in the water all over The Bahamas are as breathtaking as fine jewelry, and make excellent souvenirs and or decoration back home. It’s important, of course, to make sure you’re not removing a live animal from its natural habitat, so the best way to go about your shelling expedition is to just marvel at them during your beach walk, scuba dive or snorkel, and then make sure to pick up the pink conch shells, sand dollars and sea biscuits that are sold on the seashore, and practically everywhere else.
As for ‘quick-fix’ tourist souvenirs, there’s always the hustle and bustle of the Straw Market in Nassau, where you can find bags, fans, baskets and other straw products sold by ever-bargaining craftsmen.
