Some of the trendiest, most luxurious, and high-end shopping in the Bahamas can be done on Paradise Island.  Between the Shops at Atlantis and the Marina Village, you'll be able to stock up on high fashion, jewelry, house wares, fragrances, and more, and thanks to this being a duty free port, you can do it all at low prices. 

For a more down-to-earth shopping experience, check out the Craft Center which is located right near the bridge from New Providence to Paradise Island.  You'll find a lot of great souvenirs here that commemorate your time in the Bahamas. 

And, if you can't get enough of, take the bridge over the Nassau and continue your shopping adventures there.  In addition to malls and boutiques they have the largest Straw Market in the Caribbean where you can stock up on local crafts and souvenirs.
