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.  

Which Beaches Are Available?

You'll discover a large selection of beaches to enjoy on the island. Whether you enjoy people watching, or you prefer a more secluded spot, 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 hoping to snorkel, a beach offering that option is Casuarina Beach. Once you arrive on Paradise Island from Nassau, head west passed Sunrise Beach Club and over the Paradise Beach Drive bridge. Follow Paradise Beach Drive until you reach Casuarina Beach.

Another place for beach-goers to consider is Pirates Cove Beach. You don't need to be hunting for buried treasure or wearing an eye patch to enjoy a day at Pirates Cove Beach. Instead, this is a popular spot on the small Staniel Cay for hiking and sunbathing.

Colonial Beach: This pearly white stretch of sand runs along the eastern peninsula of Paradise Island, across the harbor from downtown Nassau. Rather than looking back over the harbor, though, the beach is buffered from the city by a forested area, and instead looks out over the vast Atlantic.

The beaches on Paradise Island are shown in the table below.
