About Paradise Island

A playground where you can mingle with the rich and famous, Paradise Island has the beautiful soft, sandy beaches and clear turquoise water of the rest of the Bahama Islands—only they can't claim the massive Atlantis Resort with its incredible aquarium, water parks, casino and shoal of dolphins.

About Paradise Island in the Bahamas

Formerly known as Hog Island, Paradise Island was a shelter for pirates, smugglers and slaves during the 19th century. All 277 hectares of it were owned by a Swedish entrepreneur until the 1950s when it was sold to a developer. Since then, the island has passed through the hands of several billionaire businessmen—including US president Donald Trump—and is today owned by Sol Kerzner.

Celebrities regularly visit the island on luxury yachts to dine at restaurants run by celebrity chefs such as such as Nobu Matsuhisa and Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Book an escape here and who knows who’ll you bump into on the beach!

What to do on Paradise Island

Hug, tickle, and “high five” your own dolphin when you step into the water with him or her and their trainer at Dolphin Cay.

Get a day pass for the Aquarium at Atlantis to view sharks, seahorses and manta rays and other sea life through the huge floor to ceiling windows. You can even feed cabbage leaves to sea turtles.

Gaze at luxury yachts while dining al fresco at Marina Village and see how many celebs you can spot—after you've had a stroll down the cobbled street and done a bit of window shopping, of course. Musicians add some background ambience.

Wonder at the gorgeous glass domed ceiling to Atlantis Casino and admire the Dale Chichuly glass art dotted around. Or go and check out the jellyfish aquarium. That's when you're not using one of the 750 slot machines or playing baccarat, blackjack or roulette at one of the 110 gaming tables, that is.

Top travel tips for Paradise Island

A 'happening' resort which will appeal to adults and children alike, Paradise Island - and the Atlantis Resort in particular - offers pretty spectacular entertainment and attractions for visitors. More like an expensive holiday camp than 'Vegas by the sea', it is indeed a little slice of vacation heaven.

If you’re visiting the dolphins at Dolphin Cay, you should be aware that photos cost $170.00 for a set of 30, as they can't be bought individually.

Avoid Marina Village on Tuesday if you're thinking of eating out, as most restaurants closed that day. If you're looking for local—and inexpensive—fayre, then head to Potter's Cay where you'll find fresh fish stands under the bridge. Get there early though as it closes at 6pm.

Don't be put off by the 'Do Not Enter' signs at the Versailles Gardens and Cloisters—non-hotel visitors are welcome with only part of these beautiful gardens sealed off for private property.
