Ahoy! We continue our #GlobalDestination highlight of Nassau, where you can live a truly authentic pirate experience in the Pirates of Nassau Museum.
Did you know that some of the most famous pirates once called Nassau home? Including the legendary Black Beard! They even formed their own Pirate Republic with him as the Magistrate. The Bahamas were perfect for pirate operations, as its waters were too shallow for big man-o-war ships but deep enough for the shallow vessels pirates favored. They formed their base of operations in the Caribbean here in The Bahamas, choosing their own government, and attracting merchants from all around the world with their expensive treasures. As it was once said: when pirates slept they did not dream of going to heaven but of returning to their favorite port in Nassau.
