About Paradise Island, Bahamas
The Bahamas are an ideal travel destination for many Americans. The tropical environment sits close to the southern coast of the United States
and offers opportunities for both relaxation and adventure. Paradise Island is a small island packed with opportunities for tourists.
The Bahamas are a chain of 700 islands beginning 50 miles south of Florida. Paradise Island is a 685-acre island attached to the northeast side of Providence Island by two bridges.
Paradise Island is semi-tropical. Temperatures generally range from 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit and it rarely rains.
Paradise Island is home to many miles of beautiful beaches that give access to turquoise tropical water. Cabbage beach and Paradise Beach offer white sand beaches and are perfect for sunbathing, walking and snorkeling.
Because Paradise Island was developed largely to promote tourism, it has a number of resorts that aim to impress. The Atlantis, which sits on the waterfront, offers a plethora of amenities, including a casino, water park and dolphin cay. The resort has become its own tourist attraction on Paradise Island.
It's just a short drive from Paradise Island to Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas. You'll find easily accessible botanical gardens, historical sites and national parks there. In addition, you can explore the ruins of several forts used by the British.
Paradise Island is full of places to unwind after a day in the sun. You can dance and enjoy cocktails at many local nightclubs. One of them, Aura, is a 9,000-square-foot club with a sophisticated atmosphere and excellent music.
