Paradise Island Introduction

Turquoise waters lap in foamy white waves onto the powdery sands of Paradise Island, where swaying palms and sunny skies finish setting the idyllic scene. Just a couple of miles from popular Nassau, this Bahamas getaway is known for its huge resorts replete with family-friendly activities, from aquatic animal encounters to twisting water slides. You won't have to wander far to find a patch of white sand, while just off shore in the Atlantic reefs and shipwreck dive sites teem with colorful sea life.

Hotels in Paradise Island

Paradise Island hotels come in the form of sprawling resorts and beach-front villas with on-site restaurants and relaxing lounge decks. Whether you pick a luxury 5-star stay complete with spa treatments and ocean views from private balconies or opt for a boutique beach club with a smaller footprint, you'll find that most properties here take advantage of the setting with island decor, sparkling pools, and breezy rooms. Families will appreciate the children's clubs, kiddie pools, and water slides, especially at larger resorts. The island is popular, so be sure to book early if you're visiting during the winter high season.

Where to stay

Paradise Island is only about 5 miles long and a mile wide, so no matter where you stay here, you're sure to be close to a picturesque beach. The town center of the island is located near the bridges, ferry terminal, and Paradise Lake, so look for a Paradise Island hotel near this locale if you want to be in walking distance to shops and restaurants and have quick access to the larger neighboring island. Downtown Nassau is always a hub of activity thanks to cruise ship docks, so expect buzzing beaches, lots of shopping, and touristy museums and attractions.

Things to see

Powdery white sands and turquoise waters are the biggest draw to Paradise Island, so plenty of time in the sun should be on the agenda. From Arawak Beach on the western side to Cove and Paradise beaches on the east, the island offers plenty of spots to chill out seaside and enjoy the Atlantic views. When you're ready to jump into the waves, you can gear up with snorkels to explore marine life close to shore or book excursions to dive at shipwreck sites and peek at coral reefs. Since the Bahamas capital of Nassau is just a quick ferry, bike, or car ride away, you'll want to head over to check out the famous Nassau Straw Market full of souvenirs and handmade purses, hats, and jewelry. The 1700s Fort Fincastle and its limestone Queen's Staircase are also on New Providence Island, just a couple of miles away.

How to get to Paradise Island

After you've looked over all the Paradise Island hotel deals and found the perfect spot, it's time to book your vacation to the Bahamas. Lynden Pindling International Airport is the closest flight hub in nearby Nassau and serves as a gateway to the island chain, so plenty of airlines and routes are available. You can rent a car for the 30-minute drive through New Providence Island and over the Sir Sidney Poitier Bridge or arrange a shuttle or taxi if you plan to hang out at your resort the whole time. Scooters, bikes, and golf carts also are used to get around.
