Just north of Nassau lies Paradise Island, which is known for its white, sandy shorelines that melt into the clear waters. The island boasts numerous luxury hotels and resorts, with amenities ranging from golf courses to tropical aquariums and hopping nightlife. If you are looking for seclusion on a honeymoon, try Adelaid or Lyford Cay, where you and your other half will likely be the only beach-goers around. Swimming with Bottlenose dolphins is also a popular island activity at Blue Lagoon Island, and Sandy Toes beach is a private enclave to hole up in a hammock and unwind.
To marry in the Bahamas, couples must present valid passports, birth certificates, and a valid photo ID (such as a driver’s license). Divorce and death decrees are also required if applicable. Check with your Certified Destination Wedding Specialist for more details.
