We came to Paradise Cove because we were told that it's a perfect place for snorkeling. If you don't have your own snorkeling gear, you can rent it for $18 for a full day plus $3 to enter the beach. The place was packed with people. The small beach had barely any room to lay down and there were approx... More

We caught a cab to Paradise Cove from the cruise ship terminal and spent the day snorkeling and relaxing. The set up is laid back and comfortable. It's not luxurious, but there are restrooms, showers, a full bar with great frozen drinks and a walk-up service restaurant. Snorkeling gear, Chairs and umbrellas are available for rent as well. Our only... More

This snorkeling experience was beautiful. What a better way to relax than getting lost in you thoughts while admiring the fantastic variety of underwater sea life. The beach is beautiful and clean , the staff very friendly and the cost very affordable. I rented the equipment and only recommend that they should update it as water kept coming into my... More

We snorkeled here and it was AWESOME. Seriously the highlight of our trip. You can't come without doing this. However, if you have kiddo's, no matter how good they are at swimming, I would have them wear a lifejacket. It will make your experience more relaxing!

Happened upon this cove from our Carnival Cruise to Freeport, Bahamas. At the cruise peer there was someone there offering a van to this cove so a group of us took it. The gentlemen who drove us to the cove shared local history and stories on the way which was very interesting. We were all surprised as to how nice... More

My husband and I went out here with my young daughter and my mom (who doesn't snorkel). Everyone was really nice to my daughter, which always makes me happy and gets a mention. The beach was ok, there were a lot of flies! They kept trying to wring more money out of us ($5 for a coconut, then another $2... More

The reef is well-loved. Definitely plan to go during high tide so you can see all there is. Good prices on snacks and good guides, too. Lots to rent like glass bottom kayaks, snorkels, beach chairs. Probably not a full day's worth of activities but parking is plentiful and they offer shuttles.

If you have no other way to get to the beach (which is a bit unimaginable on Grand Bahama Island), give it a shot. It is well organized with a commitment to the safety of the customers. This is important, their customers have never been on a beach before and need the attention. Staff was friendly, just not a particularly... More

My husband and I rented a car on the island and just drove to Deadman's Reef. We brought our own towels, snorkeling masks, and fins. You can rent all this stuff there, but if you want to save some money just bring your own. Anything you need in terms of floats, chairs, etc... you can rent. There are lockers also... More
