Most visitors to Paradise Island arrive in Nassau and commute to Paradise Island by ground transport.
When you arrive at Lynden Pindling International Airport (formerly known as Nassau International Airportu), you won't find bus service to take you to Paradise Island. Many package deals include hotel transfers from the airport. Otherwise, if you're not renting a car, you'll need to take a taxi. Taxis in Nassau are metered and take cash only; it usually costs around $35 to go from the airport to your hotel. The driver will also ask you to pay the northbound one-way $1 bridge toll, a charge that will be added onto your metered fare at the end of the ride.
Paradise Island does not have a visitor information office, so refer to the tourist facilities in downtown Nassau. The concierge or guest-services staff at your hotel can also give you information about local attractions.
Paradise Island's finest beaches lie on the Atlantic (northern) coastline, while the docks, wharves, and marinas are on the southern side. Most of the island's largest and glossiest hotels and restaurants, as well as the casino and a lagoon with landscaped borders, lie west and north of the roundabout. The area east of the roundabout is less congested, with only a handful of smaller hotels, a golf course, the Versailles Gardens, The Cloister, the airport, and many of the island's privately owned villas.
