The cloisters are located across from the main entrance of the one and only ocean club. We took the free shuttle from Atlantis and it dropped us off at the ocean club golf course. It is about a ten minute walk from there. We saw signs that said "no trespassing" and we decided to walk to the ocean club guard... More

This place is a private area but we ended up walking through it pretty quickly. It is a nice little place with some views that is made for weddings. It took about 15 minutes to walk through both sides of it. It seems a little out of place with the normal things you see on the island but was a... More

A beautiful, relaxing place to walk around if you need to escape the hustle and bustle of Nassau- a hidden gem,

This is a beautiful and free to the public little strip of land. It took us 8 minutes to walk there from out hotel, the Comfort Suites. It says private property but I double checked with both our hotel front desk & the Atlantis, it's public land. Stay on the two strips of land on either side of the road... More

There is nothing I did not LOVE about this garden, except that they were no benches to sit and enjoy the garden. It is breath-taking and really well maintained. A must, must see.

This doesn't seem like much when people talk about it. you have to have an appreciation for history and art to really understand the beauty of this special spot or you won't care for it much. Lots of greenery, wear mosquito repellant! Beautiful family photo spot! The cloister and gardens seem to be a popular wedding spot as well!

We wanted to see the grounds and garden at the One and Only Ocean Club so we took the shuttle from the Coral Towers in Atlantis. We were not allowed in by the bell hop, saying that they were working inside and there was nothing to see. We did tour the gardens which were nothing to write home about. The... More

We took the free shuttle from Atlantis to visit this site on the last day of our visit. It is worth taking the time to have a look around, we are glad we did. The site is small, but beautiful. We walked through the cloisters and the grounds there down to the water, and then walked across the street to... More
