Be Happy

Hi! I’m Alan a long time Nassau resident, and I would like to welcome you to the Nassau Paradise Island Beaches website. Relax mon! You’re on Bahamian time now, grab a drink and make sure you are comfortably seated, as you browse through the various pages of this website.

Whether you want to rest at the beach, discover the city of Nassau, or a combination of the two, you will find here various easily accessible activities for your visit.

I do my best to update and improve the site on a regular basis. If you have any comments or suggestions please contact me. I’m also always adding to the site, so keep looking back for more information about this beautiful destination.

Some practical information:

Nassau formerly Charles Town, is the capital of The Bahamas. It is located on New Providence Island. Paradise Island - home to the Atlantis resort and Casino is connected to New Providence by two bridges.

The Bahamas formerly a British colony, gained its independence in 1973.

The U.S. dollars is on par with the Bahamian dollar and is accepted everywhere in The Bahamas.

All beaches in The Bahamas are public to the high water mark.  What exactly does this mean?  The locals will tell you that the high water mark can be determined by the last line left by seaweed on a beach. This may be a bit tricky to determine in some cases, such as in front of hotels, as these beaches are groomed on a daily basis. As a general rule as long as you are on a beach close to the water, you are on public property and you are free to stroll on the powdery sand of The Bahamas.

Thank you for visiting my web site.
