This is a small island connected by two bridges off of Nassau. It is 685 acres and contains the most popular attraction, the Atlantis resort.
The Atlantis is a tourist destination full of casinos, aquatic adventures, and marine habitat. This resort has five hotels, all connected with shops, casinos, restaurants, and entertainment venues.

There are 11 pools, and 8 water slides, along side of crystal clear blue ocean waters for miles.

How to get there:
Taxis. This was one I was a little skeptical on at first, I wasn’t sure how safe the taxis were in the Bahamas, but going from the airport to the hotel is extremely reliable. About $50 to get to the resort, cash only.
Atlantis Shuttle. There is a shuttle that takes you directly to the resort, it is $35 per person, round trip.
Towncars. This company is run by Atlantis if you purchase through the resort, there are some outside sources if you decide to go another route. Though the Atlantis, print out the voucher before arrival, the car will be waiting for you at the airport. This is about $200 for town car, and $320 for SUV round trip.
