While the Bahamas are considered safe to travel to, some areas of Nassau are considered dangerous for tourists due to the rise of criminal activities. Avoid traveling alone at the south of Shirley Streer after dark, or you may face some serious trouble from the local criminals. The US Department of States has rated this location critical in terms of criminal activities. However, the crimes are targeted among locals. Tourists need awareness about their belongings and who they talk to. If you are traveling during the COVID-19, make sure that you have the Bahamas Health Visa and all the necessary safety equipment to maintain social distancing with the locals and other tourists.
