Paradise Island

Connected to New Providence Island by a bridge, Paradise Island is one of the most popular destinations in the Bahamas. It offers a variety of beaches to suit a range of tastes. Most of the island's hotels and resorts are along Cable Beach, Paradise Beach or Cabbage Beach offering miles of white sand and outstanding watersport facilities. The Bahamas' capital city of Nassau is located here, or to escape the crowds one can head over to the secluded Caves Beach or Love Beach, a popular spot for snorkelling.
