Paradise Beach is a popular beach on the western side of the island. Families, couples, locals and tourists – plus plenty of cruise ship passengers – flock to this beach, so prepare for crowds. This pristine shoreline boasts soft sand, turquoise waters, a pool, a restaurant and shopping (you can pick up a bathing suit, sandals and other beach necessities at three stores along the shore). For $3, you're granted access to all the facilities, as well as a chair by the beach or the pool, and for about $18, you can purchase a Fun Pass to use all of the inflatable water toys, water trampolines, a coconut tree climb, kayaks, snorkeling gear and stand-up paddleboards. Poolside and beachside food and beverage service is also offered with a $10 minimum. 

Recent visitors said that Paradise Beach was a very enjoyable way to spend the day, especially because it was void of people hawking their goods and services. Others remarked that the staff is friendly and helpful, while others were pleased with the clean facilities. 

Paradise Beach is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., depending on the season. Admission is $3 for adults and $18 for a Fun Pass, which allows access to the many water activities available on the beach for the day. Paradise Beach is accessible via taxi; visit the website for more information.
