This place is what the Bahamas is all about! This is a private beach where your not overcrowded and you feel like you have it to yourself. I snorkeled and admit it was a good distance to the deeper water but on the way to the big reef in case you don't make it I did get the pleasure to enjoy some fish though not as many but once there lots of reef fish,stingrays and bonefish. They have everything here that you need for a great day at the beach kayaks, snorkle gear, beach chairs, umbrellas, restrooms, lockers, food, drinks and a little gift shop. The ride to paradise cove really lets you see where the Bahamians live and work the biggest settlement area is called 8 Mile Rock. The food is good the drinks cold and the views to die for I will be back.
