With decreasing temperatures and increasing wind speeds, Philadelphia faced its coldest stretch of the year last week. Instead of bundling up to stay warm, why not beat the cold with an island getaway? Rubinsohn Travel (215) 886-5200 has found the perfect place to make everyone’s cold woes disappear.
Paradise Island, Bahamas
This vacation destination has a name that speaks for itself. The island has an area of 685 acres and is located just off the shore of the city, Nassau. The Atlantis Resort is the crown jewel of paradise and makes for the perfect getaway.
Atlantis is everything you could ever dream of. One of the resort’s biggest attractions is the Mayan themed Aquaventure water park. The park features attractions such as a mile long rapid river and multiple water slides, each with their own unique twist. The Dig is one of the most unique parts of the park, consisting of 14 lagoons with more than 50,000 aquatic animals, representing more than 250 species. It was designed to represent the lost city of Atlantis and give the guests a taste of adventure. The biggest attraction of the water park is the Mayan Temple, which features a 60 foot slide that takes you through a clear acrylic tunnel submerged in a shark-filled lagoon.
If the thrill of the water park isn’t for you, grab some friends and head out onto the 18-hole par 72 championship golf course. The course also features a restaurant and bar inside the clubhouse. After a round of golf, try relaxing by one of 11 different available pools, and don’t worry you can bring the family along too. Everybody has been on a vacation where one child was too small to go on the rides, but Atlantis has taken care of that by introducing 3 pools designed purely for kids’ entertainment and safety.
The beautiful Bahamian beaches are only a short walk away from your accommodations. Simply follow one of the paths from your tower and step out onto one of three private beaches available to the guests of Atlantis. The white-sand and crystal-blue water stretch out for 5 miles and offer some breathtaking sights of the Caribbean.
For a day of adventure, drive over the bridge to the capital of the Bahamas, Nassau, and try out various activities such as going on a food tasting tour, powerboating and snorkeling. The best way to capture the beauty of the Bahamian ocean is to embark on a SUB, or Scenic Underwater Bubble, excursion, which involves using a personal submarine to propel oneself through the water and explore what the ocean has to offer.
