For a city now known for its warming sun and balmy breezes, Nassau has a tumultuous past. First settled by the English, the area was contested by England, France and Spain. For many years, Nassau was a home base for notorious pirates, and it was burned to the ground by the Spanish on three separate occasions. Since 1740, however, visitors from all over the world in search of both relaxation and adventure have made Nassau their favourite destination.
