From the "Average Joe" to the rich and the famous, people from all walks of life have been spotted on the dazzlingly white shores of Paradise Island.   While those staying at the massive Atlantis Paradise Island Resort make up a good majority of the beachgoers, even tourists staying in Nassau and Cable Beach will make the drive over the bridge just to dip their toes in these bright blue waters.  

The Area's Beaches

You will discover a large number of beaches to visit on the island. Whether you enjoy people watching, or you like having more of the beach to yourself, you can find a beach that appeals to you. You can click on each beach name for detailed information about that section of the coast.

Paradise Beach

If you are wanting to snorkel, a location providing that option is Casuarina Beach. Stunning pink sands and aquamarine waters typify Casuarina Beach. Just off shore is a patch of reef where visitors can swim with parrotfish and turtles.

Another alternative that beach-goers can consider is Pirates Cove Beach. Looking down from the limestone cliff that shelters Pirates Cove you will see topaz lagoons that dot the white sands, and similarly colored waves crashing up against the rocks.

Colonial Beach: A quieter area than some of the nearby beaches, Colonial Beach is a great spot catch some rays and watch the many boats coming in and out as they make their way around Paradise Island and into Nassau Harbor. There's also an interesting lighthouse - the Nassau Port Lighthouse - you'll want to check out a stone's thrown to the west.

The table just below enables you to learn more information on the the beaches that can be found on the island.
