Paradise Island is much more developed and modern, though Nassau/New Providence is catching up. I think the beaches on New Providence are much nicer, with calmer waters that are better for swimming. 1000% PI- not even close. It’s a different (better) world for a tourist.
The Harborside Resort features residential-style villas, which average $284 per night for one bedroom. Premium two-bedroom villas start at $734 per night. The Reef, a luxury property with studios, suites and penthouses, starts at $314 per night for a studio.
Paradise Island is very safe. Most of the Island is owned by the Atlantis and there is pretty good security around. As with any area there are places to avoid, but if you are smart there really is not too much to worry about.
The good news is that there is still a free public beach access; it’s just a bit of a trek to get through.
I would compare Freeport more to a larger city and Bimini to a small pretty laidback Caribbean Island. Night and day really imo. Bimini is MUCH smaller and has less in the way of shopping, dining, activities. The main beauty is on the water.
I think one of the reasons why the Atlantis is so expensive is to pay for the upkeep of their marine habitat. The resort offers 14 lagoons, eight million gallons of salt water and more than 50,000 aquatic animals representing over 250 marine species.
The Atlantis Atlantis Bridge Suite $25,000 per night
The Atlantis Bridge Suite has the distinction of being the most expensive hotel suite in the world—it’s $25,000 a night.
Be aware of your surroundings, particularly in Nassau, as the risk of crime increases after dark. Avoid walking alone after sunset, especially around poorly-lit and deserted locations, such as streets and beaches.
Security – Eleuthera is one of the safest islands in the Bahamas. There isn’t a lot of trouble here because most of the inhabitants are peaceful. People who live here also watch out for their neighbors. It is much like a very small town where everyone knows one another.
You don’t need to rent a car here. Most visitors walk around Paradise Island’s most densely developed sections and hire a taxi for the occasional longer haul. The most popular way to reach nearby Nassau is to walk across the toll bridge. There is no charge for pedestrians.
Bimini is incredibly affordable. Here’s how to plan your getaway. Arriving by seaplane or ferry, the Resorts World Bimini ($217 per night) is tucked away on its own corner of the island and offers three waterfront pools, a first-class spa, and a 10,000-square foot live action casino.
Bimini, known for its big game fishing, uncrowded beaches and partying nightlife, is also referred to as author Ernest Hemingway’s retreat. Hemingway, who first visited Bimini in 1935, engaged in sport fishing or big game fishing in Bimini for a number of years.
There is crime everywhere but Bimini is a very safe place to be. The locals are the best. Be sure to stop into Sherrys on the beach.
Exuma, Bahamas The waters that surround Exuma’s 365 islands are so supernaturally blue and clear it feels as if you’re in an infinity pool, whether you’re swimming alongside adorable piglets on Big Major Cay or wading in the calm shallows of Small Hope Bay.Jun 21, 2016
The adult only area, huge rooms and nightlife make this perfect for adults visiting Atlantis. The rooms are well appointed suits and we loved Cain. A short distance to the main casino and club inside the over run with kids main Royal towers.
Re: best beach at Atlantis? The beach in front of Reef/Cove is the nicest.
The best time to visit the Bahamas is from mid-December to mid-April, the country’s peak season. Though temperatures here are great year-round (they rarely dip below 60 degrees), the islands fall within the hurricane belt, so hurricanes may be a factor between June 1 and Nov. 30 (the Atlantic hurricane season).

Atlantis Paradise Island
The Bridge Suite at Atlantis Paradise Island, Bahamas Suspended between Atlantis’ Royal Towers 16 stories off the ground, the Bridge Suite is the most opulent accommodation at the Bahamas’ premiere luxury resort destination.Feb 1, 2015
This is only Seven Star in the World, which needs no introduction. Must watch the Sea view from its hanging Restaurants. Ideally located on the Arabian SEA beach.
Yes, there are free drinks…it’s hit or miss.
Travelers not staying at the all-inclusive Atlantis resorts can still visit the Aquaventure water parks in Dubai and the Bahamas with a day pass. However, guests in the Bahamas must be a guest of a partner hotel to buy a ticket.
In the Bahamas, service staff and hotel workers expect to be tipped. … Many hotels and restaurants automatically add a 15% gratuity to your bill; if not, a 15% to 20% tip at a restaurant is appropriate (more for a high-end establishment). Bartenders generally get $1 to $2 per drink.
If you are staying on Paradise Island or Nassau, I would say 7 days would be just fine. If, however, you would like to visit another island during your stay, then I’d say at least 10 – 14 days. May is a great time to visit. The weather is warm, though not yet sweltering summer heat.
Country Summary: The vast majority of crime occurs on New Providence (Nassau) and Grand Bahama (Freeport) islands. In Nassau, exercise caution in the “Over the Hill” area (south of Shirley Street). Violent crime, such as burglaries, armed robberies, and sexual assault occur, but generally not in tourist areas.
Did you know that the archipelago of the Bahamas consists of more than 700 islands spread over some 500 miles in the Atlantic Ocean? However, only 30 of them are inhabited, and two-thirds of the entire population is living in Nassau on New Providence Island.
During the rainy season (May-October) stagnant water builds up and is the perfect breeding ground for mosquitos. We experienced the worst mosquitoes in Great Inagua but if anchored next to the shore on any island expect them to visit every night as the sun is setting.
