Radisson Cable Beach to the Atlantis

We are leaving tomorrow 10/17 for 3 nights to the Radisson for a wedding, the wedding is Saturday, thinking of going over to check out the Atlantis with my family (I have been there already - stayed at Harborside, only way to do it if your going to do it) Just want to walk the grounds there, what is the best way to get there? boat, taxi or bus???? thanks

From the Radisson, you can take the #10 jitney from out front to downtown Nassau and then Ferry to Paradise Dock $3pp. The only other way is to taxi from one hotel to the other. As for Atlantis, non-guest are not permitted to walk around the grounds. You can purchase a pass ($25)to the DIGS, which entitles you to a tour of the aquarium and the part of the property, but you may not use the facitilies - pools/slides/lounges etc. Non-guests can hit the casinos or shop.

There's another bus that runs down the middle of Nassau that'll take you to the foot of the P.I. Bridge and you can walk from there. So, it's take the #10 to downtown Nassau and hop on the other bus to the P.I. Bridge.

Or take the ferry, which sounds a little more inviting.

Thank you everyone, Scubagirl, my understanding from when we were there was we can walk around, check out the beach and the walking paths (not the dig, of course) for free. If we choose to swim, slide, visit the dig, etc, we would have to pay. You can walk into almost any resort and "check it out", thats all we are doing, and browse along the marina and "dream"!!!!!

The Atlantis is a bit more paying guest selective these days, and they are checking wrist bands at most locations, so you may have a problem walking around the facilities.

The "pass" is different now too, it is only for the dig and the aquariums, it does not include use of the facilities of the resort which now are only for guests.

I do think you will really enjoy the Raddison. Beautiful grounds, great pool and beach area and lots of restaurants in the resort and on Cable Beach.

We have stayed next door at the Marriott several times and enjoy being in that area.

Have a great time and enjoy the Bahamas.

Tweedy is right, wristbands and passes can no longer be purchased. Only guests of Atlantis, Ocean Club, Harbourside and Comfort Suites can use the outdoor properties and pool facilities. You can access the beach from a path next to the Sheraton.

Got back late Sunday, never brought the folks over to the Atlantis, The Radisson was nice, the food was so-so, butyou get what you pay for, the concept of not leaving and just vegging was wonderful!!!! I travel every year to the island of St.Maarten, which I love and wouldn't give up, you can't compare the two, but this was a great place to just unwind and chill out!!!!
