Posted by: Nassau Paradise Island on October 18, 2017

One of the best things about choosing Nassau Paradise Island as a vacation destination is its proximity. Geographically, the Bahamas is very close to the southeastern coast of the United States, and getting here is relatively quick and easy, especially compared to many other Caribbean islands. In fact, you may be surprised to learn just how quickly you can be experiencing the best of what The Bahamas has to offer! Less time traveling means more time swimming, exploring, relaxing – whatever your perfect vacation consists of.

If you’re traveling from a major city in the U.S., there’s a good chance you can hop on a convenient nonstop flight to Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau.

Nassau Paradise Island is a small area – New Providence, where Nassau is located, is 21 miles long, and Paradise Island is only 1.1 square miles in size – so everything you need for the perfect getaway is located within walking distance or a short cab ride.
