The Bahamas' premier entertainment destination
Home to the Caribbean's biggest waterpark, a vast open-air dolphin habitat, more than 20 restaurants, a stunning golf course and several entertainment venues, Atlantis Paradise Island is one destination not to miss in the Bahamas
Lying just to the north of Nassau, the Atlantis Paradise Island resort is a vast hotel and entertainment complex offering a wide range of activities, including a state-of-the-art waterpark, golf course, nightclub, aquariums and a carefully designed marine habitat allowing visitors to swim with dolphins.
For those visiting the Bahamas on a superyacht charter, Atlantis Paradise Island makes an ideal excursion, with a number of excellent restaurants on site for those wanting to stay for lunch or dinner, a choice of pools and beaches and a spa if you looking to unwind completely.
Spread over 141 acres, Aquaventure is the largest waterpark in the Caribbean, featuring 11 swimming pools, including three designed for children, 18 high-speed water slides, a mile-long lazy river ride and three sandy beaches.
The pools all follow different themes, such as the Grotto Pool, with its cascading waterfalls and the Mayan Temple Pool, and some offer private cabanas, accommodating up to six people and activities such as water volleyball are also available.
For the ultimate thrill, take your turn on one of the water slides such as the 36m-high Surge or the Jungle Slide, which takes you on an exiting ride through the exotic gardens. A day pass is available which gives full access to the park.
Atlantis Paradise Island is also home to one of the largest open-air marine mammal habitats in the world, Dolphin Cay. It was originally set up as a rescue centre for dolphins and sea lions displaced by Hurricane Katrina, and is dedicated to the conservation and rehabilitation of these magnificent creatures.
Visitors can get face-to-face with the resident dolphins, swimming or snorkelling alongside them in the lagoon or taking a kayak through their enclosed habitat, and get close to sea lions in their protective pool.
You can also swim with stingrays in a shallow lagoon, and enjoy an unforgettable experience snorkelling in the 'Ruins of Atlantis', a unique recreated sunken ancient city home to 20,000 tropical fish.
Atlantis Paradise Island has more than 20 restaurants and cafes, ranging from fine dining venues to more casual options serving local seafood, culinary specialities from the Bahamas and international cuisine.
Fish by José Andrés offers fresh and inventive Bahamian seafood dishes including conch and lionfish and a choice of three tasting menus introducing you to the tastes of the Caribbean.
Try the excellent Japanese cuisine at Nobu, prime ribs and lobster at Bahamian Club or Italian classics at Casa d'Angelo, to name just a few.
Golfers should head to the spectacular 18-hole championship Ocean Club Golf Course, while a movie theatre, comedy club, night club and world-class casino are also at hand. And if you need to unwind after all that, relax with a massage at the Mandara Spa.
With so much going on, it's no wonder that Atlantis Paradise Island is such a popular stopover with those visiting the Bahamas by private yacht. Start planning your yacht vacation now, by taking a look at all luxury yachts available for superyacht charter in the Bahamas.
