    R- U Wondering if they charge to use their Beach?

    Can I stay forever?

    Favorite thing: All the beaches in the Bahamas are public. No one can stop you or charge you
    for using a beach. You can access the beach on a little path at the side of
    what is now the Riu Paradise Hotel (used to be Sheraton). What you are charged
    for is if you want a tour of the Atlantis property. That is $25.00. You can
    not get up from the beach to their property without a wristband.

    Fondest memory: The people!!

    Save your MONEY with these TIPS!!

    Dinner time

    Favorite thing: SAVE MONEY!!!!!
    Spending the least amount of money...try the jet ski guys on the beach after
    4:00pm...they will cut their prices ...try to ask for smoky or kevar! wheel &
    deal with all vendors on the beach if interested as well as the straw market
    downtown!

    Eating out..the seaside buffet next door at the wyndham is 50% off on Mon &
    wed...and also take the #10 jitney (outside the hotel) to the "fish fry" (an
    area with about 10 restaurants) this is where the locals eat ...try "seafood
    haven" ..i got an awesome lobster dinner for $20!

    Stay away from the Nassau cruises to the blue lagoon..they said the price was
    $25 but we went to get tickets it was $45...what a rip off! Here is a page you might like: http://www.majesticholidays.com/tours/excursiont/excursiont.htm

    Fondest memory: Running back to catch the ship before if left!!

    Looking to Snorkel?

    by Gra8ful Updated Oct 4, 2005

    Love the Bahamas

    Favorite thing: There really isn't much good snorkeling from the beach. There are no longer a
    healthy reef systems near the beach. Jet skis, ski boats and other behaviours
    have depleted the reefs. The only one that has a few fish left is at the
    Radisson, but the hotel no longer allows cruisers the use of the property (and
    the beach is not accessible by walking along the waterline)
    If you want to see colorful fish and healthy coral, you'll have to take a boat
    tour to a healthy reef or sea garden.

    f you want to hang out at the beach, you can use the Nassau Beach hotel and
    Wyndham at Cable Beach (they are right next door to the Radisson).

    Fondest memory: The straw market

    Stingrays

    Stingrays

    Favorite thing: From just about any bridge, quay wall, or boat you can look into the waters of the sea and see marine life. These two stingrays slid by the quay wall of our hotel. Since it was dusk, I needed to touch up the pictures, but they were just some of the more interesting life we saw. Snapper, angelfish, sharks etc. came cruising by.

    Fondest memory: Th waters around the various islands are really shallow and you can see down about 30 feet or even more.

    Favorite thing: Stay out of the town! Unless you want to buy crap and see how dirty it all is.

    Fondest memory: Snorkeling even though I nearly hyperventilated! Also, I went on the huge slide...no small feat---it is pretty much a sheer drop! And you go through a tunnel where sharks are swimming outside!

    Favorite thing: Here is a picture from a little beach... there are lots of jet skis, kayaks, boats, parasailing, etc for rental, and they are everywhere you go, and often they will approach you and try to offer you good deals..
