I just want to walk the beach at Paradise Island!

So, in the long-long ago, pre-Atlantis days, I went on a cruise and we took the boat over to Paradise Island and spent the afternoon on the beautiful ocean-side beach.

Now that it's crazy developed - is there any way to access the beach without having to hand over one of my children as collateral? I don't want to go to a waterpark, pet fish, or anything else but veg on that beach. Any thoughts?

There are still public beaches. Not far at all from where the ferry drops you. Just ask and they will give you directions

If I recall on our last 2 cruise with Carnival and RCCL we went to the same public beach. The 1st we took the ferry and walked to the beach. The 2nd time we took a taxi and we were dropped off right at the beach. The public beach was located right next to or close to the Atlantis.

Take a taxi to the Riu hotel, walk around the side not closest to Atlantis, then treck a bit through the woods. Same beach. $10 all you can drink coconuts!
