With more than two miles of beachfront, Nassau is dotted with small boutique hotels and large resorts. You can even hire a horse-drawn carriage and take a romantic tour of old Nassau.

Paradise Island is connected to Nassau by a spectacular road bridge. It is a scenic destination that will surely capture your heart. You can revel in the view of the Atlantis Resort, which dominates the skyline. In addition to its breath-taking views, Paradise Island is a place of abundant decadence. It hosts one of the world’s largest outdoor aquariums with about 50,000 marine creatures. Paradise Island is also the pickup point for dolphin and sea lion encounters at Blue Lagoon, as well as powerboat adventures at the Exuma Cays. For a romantic ambiance, we recommend Paradise Island’s 14th century Augustinian Cloister to see Versailles-styled gardens.

Grand Bahama

Weddings N ParadiseStay a little bit closer to home by choosing Grand Bahama during your destination wedding planning.

You and your guests can visit the pristine Taino Beach on Wednesdays for their famous fish fry evening. If you want an intimate setting, take a kayak for two through the mangroves and sand dunes of Gold Rock Creek.

Exuma

As the location for two James Bond movies, Exuma is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after places in the Bahamas for destination wedding packages and trips. It consists of 365 islands and cays that are spread across more than 120 miles of ocean. Exuma is also home to some of the most exclusive private island resorts in the world.
