Paradise Cove is a beach resort in the Bahamas that has close proximity to a popular snorkeling spot: Deadman’s Reef.
Deadman’s Reef is accessible by swimming out to it from the shore of Paradise Cove and its shallow nature means it is ideal for all levels of snorkelers. Though on the smaller side, the reef is teeming with sea life. You’ll see many different colors and sizes of fish, plus there’s a good chance you’ll even see stingrays and sea turtles. If you’d like to take a break while snorkeling, there are floating rafts available by the reef so you don’t have to swim all the way back to shore.
After you’re done snorkeling, you can go for a walk along the beach of Paradise Cove or grab some fresh seafood or frozen drink in the beach-side bar and restaurant.
Paradise Cove is located on Grand Bahama Island, about 15 miles from Freeport. If you’re interested in snorkeling Deadman’s Reef while at Paradise Cove, snorkel equipment is available to rent onsite. There are also adventure packages that include a meal and transportation to and from your resort or cruise ship.
