divers and those who want to avoid the crowds.
On Paradise Island
Cabbage Beach - This busy beach has been named one of the 10 best in the world. It's gorgeous combination of sea and sand makes it a favorite for visitors from every corner of the world. The big hotels are located here, and lounges are available to hotel guests. Access to the beach is located just east of the Sheraton Hotel, on Casino Drive. Walk east for more privacy, west for the crowds.
Jetski, parasailing, bananaboat available.
Paradise Cove - This cove is part of the Atlantis beach front and available only by walking the beach east in front of Atlantis. The water is sometimes calmer in the cove then the open waters.
Club Med Beach - Paradise Paradise - Keep walking over the breakwater past Atlantis, and you'll find the best off shore snorkeling in the area. This calm stretch of beach is the best in the bahamas.
Rose Island - Take a day trip to this private island for a day to remember. The beaches are beautiful, the island is still rustic and for the most part still natural. There are hammocks, picninc tables, and a small shop/bathrooms on the island. Snorkeling is great off the beach, or on the south side off the docks near the Robinson Crusoe house.
Blue lagoon Island - This beautiful island has been built up to include restaurants, grills, bars, restrooms, souvenier shops as well as many other amenities. The draw here is the dolphins / sting rays etc. If you just interested in a private island, this is not the place, if you are interested in playing with the dolphins etc. this is it. Contact Dophin Encounter or Jacharic for details.
