This trip is not for the faint hearted. The lighthouse is about 35 min walk from Atlantis property. Most of the first part of the walk is soft sand that takes a lot of effort. After most of the beach you will approach coral breakers...More

I did the walk this morning. First you have to climb over the rocks at the first property, next to the no trespassing signs. You climb along the property's wall. Then it gets easier, then there's an actual wall you somehow have to manage to...More

Don't let the hard-times stories stop you....The beach IS public and is open to all. The walk does take about 45 min there from Atlantis. My son and I did it one am BUT take sandals or shoes (I always take my TEVA's).

Paradise Island is a great stop for shopping and riding around on mopeds for some sightseeing. There's also the golf course and a few great places to eat. Flip a quarter to a child upon your arrival & they sing. Also, be sure to get...More

We recently came back from a trip through Key West and Nassau. That was my 4th visit to Nassau and I had always gotten the typical "cruise ship" picture. Thanks to these guys and google earth, we took a cab to Atlantis, snaked our way...More

The prior reviewer gave a good history & also spoke about the walk here. From The Reef Atlantis (the western edge of the Atlantis complex), it is about a 30 minute walk here. Here are impressive waves & mansions, & the beach is nice. It...More

The white lighthouse with the red lantern at the western edge of Paradise Island is a true functioning lighthouse. It was built in 1817, the first that the Imperial Lighthouse Service built in the Bahamas (followed by Hole-in-the-Wall at Abaco)--this is a rare gem of...More
