Paradise Island is part of Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas. Nassau was discovered in 1648, established as Charles Town in 1666, and given its name in 1695. English is the national language.
Paradise Island is alive with music. Influenced by West African dance music, Goombay and Junkanoo, the Island offers travelers amazing opportunities to join drum circles or simply enjoy the locals' performances.
The temperature remains warm and sunny throughout the year (averaging 70 to 90 degrees F). You will enjoy taking advantage of Paradise Island's many snorkeling, diving, hiking and scuba tours in this beautiful weather.
Consider visiting Aquaventure, a life-size replica of a Mayan temple which has a snorkeling center, rapids and mile-long river ride. Extra thrills are available through the Submersible Undersea Bubble experience, with snorkeling, kayaking and dolphin encounters.
Bring your clubs and racquets to take advantage of the Bahamas' beautiful areas for golfing and tennis (equipment may be provided; check with your hotel).
