Many tropical getaways claim to be a paradise but one truly lives up to its name. Paradise Island in the Bahamas is everything you’d expect Paradise to be. The sea, clear and blue shimmers in the sunshine of the Bahamas, and fine white sand stretches for miles along the coastline. In the air, there’s a sense that life is rich and to be enjoyed; and more people are seeing the island not only as a vacation destination, but a place to invest in a second or even permanent home.
While the pristine and beautiful surroundings suggest an idyllic and peaceful life, Paradise Island is actually rich in culture and has a colorful and dashing history. Tied deeply to the spirit of exploration, the history of the island is full of stories of European settlers, the local people, and pirates. Today, the excitement comes from less dangerous but maybe just as exhilarating pursuits.
Enjoy the good life
There are 4 beaches on Paradise Island. Paradise Beach is a mile long and is a great spot for water activities such as snorkeling. Alternatively you can just sit back and enjoy the view. Cabbage Beach is 2 miles long and here you’ll find resorts such as The Ocean Club and Atlantis. For something a little more serene, try Cove Beach, or the similarly tranquil Arawak Beach.
Whatever you want, however you want it, you can have it. Paradise Island offers a great range of fine dining options, more relaxed casual restaurants, and if you like, you can have your meals right on the beach. Nothing quite beats dining by the ocean while the sun sets over the horizon.
There’s the obligatory, Italian, French, and Japanese cuisine as well as American fare, but remember all that history? Well, that’s gone some way into making an exciting cuisine experience with Bahamian food reflecting British, Spanish, and African influences, and it’s definitely worth trying.
