Paradise Island is where travelers come to in the Bahamas to unwind, relax, play, gamble and have lots of fun! Adorned with one of the best beaches in Nassau, this vast swathe of white sand with swaying palms is home to some of the island’s largest and luxurious Resort properties.
Located right next door to Nassau and New Providence, Paradise Island Bahamas is another one of the most popular destinations in the country. Whereas Nassau is the country’s capital, Paradise Island is a resort island. From Atlantis Paradise Island to The Ocean Club, a Four Seasons Resort, the island is full of accommodations of all price ranges.
Regardless of whether you choose to stay on Paradise Island Bahamas, a visit to the island is still worthwhile. The island is home to many beautiful attractions and beaches, including the world-famous Cabbage Beach Bahamas.
A great thing about Paradise Island and Nassau is the fact that the surrounding areas of the country are easy to reach. If you find yourself craving a quieter, more laidback experience, you can always sign up for day trips to Exuma, Harbour Island, and other similar locations.
Most visitors to the Bahamas are there for one reason – to visit the country’s many famous beaches. Luckily, if you stay in the Nassau area (Paradise Island Bahamas included), you’ll have access to many beautiful beaches, with each one being different from the next.
If there were an award for “prettiest Paradise Island beach,” it would most likely go to Cabbage Beach. With powder-soft sand and bright azure water, Cabbage Beach Bahamas transports you right into a dreamlike postcard.
Besides lounging around on the beach, Cabbage Beach Bahamas also gives you the opportunity to partake in a variety of different water sports. From diving and snorkeling to water skiing and parasailing, you have access to everything you need to be as adventurous as you want. And if you’re not looking to do anything besides hanging out in the cool shade, that’s fine too!
Over on New Providence, you’ll find several other sandy expanses worth exploring, one of which is Junkanoo Beach. Located right in downtown Nassau by the cruise ship port, Junkanoo Beach is one of the most happening areas on the island. You can find all sorts of shops, restaurants, and entertainment in the nearby area.
However, the beach is another contender for the prettiest Nassau and Paradise Island beach. If you don’t mind some hustle and bustle, make sure to visit Junkanoo Beach in between touring Paradise Island Bahamas.
If you’re looking for a quieter beach that is still just as beautiful as Junkanoo or Cabbage Beach Bahamas, try Love Beach.
No trip to the Nassau area would be complete without a visit to Atlantis Paradise Island. As one of the largest and most luxurious resorts in the Bahamas and the world, ensure that you give yourself enough time to experience what the site has to offer.
If you’re looking for a place to stay on Paradise Island Bahamas, Atlantis Paradise Island should be at the top of the list. Hotel guests have all access to all sorts of amenities and facilities, including the resort’s aquariums and gardens. You also have access to a variety of different accommodation options, ensuring that it’s possible to stay at Atlantis no matter your budget.
Atlantis Paradise Island Accommodation Options
However, even if you end up staying at a different hotel, you can still purchase a day pass to enjoy all that Atlantis has to offer.
Marina Walk is home to many unique Bahamian boutiques, upmarket shops, restaurants and bars. Not to mention the full service Marina where superyachts dock for their guests to enjoy the Atlantis property.
Besides the aquariums that feature animals such as dolphins, sharks, and rays, Atlantis Paradise Island offers another amazing amenity you’ll want to take advantage of: Aquaventure Water Park.
Aquaventure is the resort’s massive water park. As if throwing you off the top of slides wasn’t enough, some parts of the park even have you pass through tubes in shark-infested waters. Needless to say, visiting the park is a great way to get adrenaline to course through your veins!
If you’re traveling with young kids (or even adults who aren’t looking to go wild), you’ll be pleased to know that Aquaventure on Bahamas Paradise Island also has some slower, more laidback attractions. From kiddie pools and slides to the lazy river, Aquaventure can be just as relaxing of a destination as it can be exhilarating.
Again, make sure to visit Aquaventure even if you’re not staying at Atlantis Paradise Island. It’s another one of the top things to do in Paradise Island Bahamas.
If you’re looking for another Bahamas Paradise Island resort, you can’t go wrong with The Ocean Club Bahamas, a Four Seasons Resort. Like Atlantis Paradise Island Bahamas, it’s another one of the top resorts on the island.
As with any Four Seasons resort, The Ocean Club Bahamas provides guests with five-star amenities that are difficult to beat. From pools and a fitness center to upscale dining and a luxury spa, the resort offers visitors everything they need to feel pampered and well taken care of.
The resort is on Cabbage Beach, so you have full access to one of the prettiest spots on the island. Plus, guests at The Ocean Club Bahamas also get to enjoy complimentary access to all the amenities of Atlantis!
One of the benefits of staying at The Ocean Club Bahamas, a Four Seasons Resort, is that you get access to the Versailles Gardens on the grounds. With gardens overflowing with flowers of every shade imaginable and statues commemorating figures like Franklin D. Roosevelt and Napoleon, the site offers a visual feast for the eyes.
Besides touring the gardens, you can also enjoy the French Cloisters. These are the remains of a 13th-century French monastery that was brought over from France and then reconstructed on Paradise Island Bahamas. As relics of the Old World, they stand out vividly against the tropical colors all around them.
If you don’t stay at the Ocean Club Bahamas, you’ll still be able to see the gardens and Cloisters from a distance, but you won’t be able to walk amongst them. That alone makes staying there onsite worthwhile!
In addition to beaches, another aspect of Paradise Island Bahamas that many people hope to take advantage of is access to prime golf courses. Luckily, you won’t have to travel far to find them. With stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean and Nassau harbor, the 7,100-yard Ocean Club Golf Course is another highlight of the island.
A visit to the course can be fun for golf enthusiasts of all skill levels. Beginners can sign up for the Play With a Pro event, pairing you with PGA pro Mike Simms. Besides being a good way to learn, it’ll also be an unforgettable experience. At the same time, even golf experts will find the crosswinds in the area challenging.
Paradise Island Bahamas offers some of the best attractions in the Nassau area. From Cabbage Beach Bahamas to resorts like Atlantis and The Ocean Club Resort, Paradise Island may be small, but there’s a lot to see and do nonetheless.
However, don’t forget that the Bahamas is an archipelago. As there are 700 different islands to experience, your trip to the Bahamas isn’t complete until you get out and see some of the other attractions. Whether you’re hoping to travel to Exuma on Swimming Pigs Tour or see the famous Pink Sands Beach on Harbour Island, we can help you get to your destination.
