Can you snorkel right from the beach on Paradise Island? If so, is the Sheraton hotel close - hear they have a good beach. Is it good for snorkeling? where is Cabbage beach, and does it have good snorkeling? Am interested in snorkeling in Nassau/Paradise Island area without taking an excursion - or can you recommend a good local excursion and how to get it? Thanks,
We just went! Cabbage Beach is the public beach in front of the Sheraton. Sheraton is to the right of Atlantis. I don't know about the snorkeling..my kids loved it because the waves were huge and perfect for body surfing! You need to take a water taxi or regular taxi for about $3-4/pp each way to get to Paradise Island. There are hundreds lined up for tourists getting off cruise ships!!! You can have them drop you off at Atlantis..walk around much of it for free, then walk to the beach.
