The tempting, tropical climes of Nassau Paradise Island are just one flight away
Nassau Paradise Island is defined by powdery beaches and crystalline waters. With an average temperature of 24C from November to April, this Bahamian gem makes for a perfect winter escape.
There’s plenty to explore beyond the beach, too – fine dining venues, fascinating museums and contemporary art galleries are just a small selection of the activities on offer. Coupled with daily direct flights from the UK, it’s easy for your clients to escape to paradise.
Make a splash
Family fun isn’t in short supply here. The 141-acre Aquaventure is the jewel in Atlantis Paradise Island’s crown. Set in the middle of the sprawling resort, the thrills and spills of Aquaventure’s 18 slides and 20 pools are easily accessible for all guests staying at the property.
Over at Baha Bay, the centrepiece of the Baha Mar resort, there are 15 beachfront acres of water park fun to enjoy. Younger guests will love Turtle Beach, where a rainbow of pint-sized slides await, while thrill seekers should head to the super-fast freefall slide Thunderball.
Completing the trio of unmissable water parks is Margaritaville Beach Resort’s Fins Up, boasting landscaped pools, a surf simulator and lazy river.
For couples who enjoy the finer things in life, Nassau Paradise Island’s high-end offering is just the ticket.
New to the island’s hotel line-up, Goldwynn Resort & Residences boasts 81 chic rooms and suites, and features a beachfront infinity pool with unparalleled ocean views.
Over at The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort, couples can opt for an intimate oceanfront suite or a secluded bungalow with private plunge pool. Set among 35 acres of Versailles-inspired gardens, a tranquil retreat is guaranteed.
Activities and adventures
Aside from relaxing on one of the pristine beaches, visitors can check out the Educulture Junkanoo Museum to find out more about this unique Bahamian tradition or take a rum distillery tour to get a taste of the local tipple.
Nature lovers should visit the Retreat Garden, where solitude can be found beneath the 90 species of palm trees.
