Just off the shore of Nassau in the Bahamas is a breathtakingly beautiful island known as Paradise Island, and if you’ve ever been, you know that this destination truly lives up to its name. Paradise Island is primarily known for its resort Atlantis, a utopian dream composed of an expansive water park, pools, its beautiful beach, an aquarium and casinos. And with the Bahamas being rated as one of the top ten places for big animal encounters, the hotel readily provides you access to all of the region’s best diving sites.
Whether your desire lies in exploring the Lost Blue Hole or delving into the Tongue of the Ocean, Atlantis can organize two-tank, half-day dive trips for those that are certified. Don’t fret if you haven’t been certified for scuba diving, as the hotel does have a variety of classes for you to select from. After scuba diving, some might choose to cap the day off with something relaxing, perhaps al fresco dining with a few cocktails or a soothing massage, but for those adrenaline junkies, heading over to the on-site casino may well be the perfect answer.
The connection between extreme sports and gambling might seem a bit far fetched at first, but a recent study actually shows that there is a positive correlation between the two activities. After close examination of four individuals, it was concluded that the rush of online gaming matched the stimulating experience provided by adrenaline sports. Although the growth in gaming websites reveal the general consumer preference for online casinos over land-based ones, there’s something quite exciting about being physically present on the gaming floor, a feature which online portals have tried to capture by offering live dealers.
So if you feel like you haven’t gotten your adrenaline fix from diving, consider playing at one of the 75 gaming tables at their world-class casino that spans across a 7-acre lagoon, the gold standard of Caribbean casinos. If you aren’t familiar with the mechanics of their games, the resort offers complimentary daily gaming lessons.
