Painted bright yellow with white gingerbread trim, the waterfront porches and balconies at Paradise Beach Hotel offer a million-dollar view of Young Island, the activity at Villa Beach, and an amazing sunset every evening. Rooms are small but bright and simply but comfortably furnished; each has a flat-screen TV and a large, modern bathroom (shower only). Locals and guests alike frequent the bar and restaurant, perhaps attracted by the thought of choosing dinner from the live lobster pool. Walk along the waterfront and absorb the local atmosphere, chat with a fisherman, or get a bite to eat or a cool drink at a neighboring restaurant. Owners Kim and Earl Halbich also operate Fantasea Tours; its dive and tour boats depart from the dock just steps from the hotel's alfresco bar and dining deck. The hotel's full-service spa has a long menu of massages and other types of pampering—a welcome treat after a day touring on land or on sea.
