Did a cruise into Nassau with an old friend. I had researched it (this is basically the only thread on the topic). Don’t bother asking locals or cab drivers, the cabbie said I don’t think you can get there. I was skeptical given how old most reviews are. Told my friend I only gave us a 50/50 chance of success.

We took a cab to Atlantis, walked through the mall, hotel, outside area towards the beach. Passed multiple signs saying we needed hotel key to pass. Act like you belong, no issues. Finally got down on paradise beach and could see lighthouse in distance .

As others have said, it’s deep sand or walk waters edge to start. You get to the coral and definitely need sneakers or water shoes. I had a small backpack with that stuff. Go slow and don’t fall on the coral. The walls everyone mentioned weren’t an issue. The first one is where you walk through a yard to get around. The house is completely abandoned now. So didn’t feel like we trespassed. After we got off the beach we didn’t see a house that was inhabited or saw/heard any dogs. The second wall is a none issue at all. Just walk around it on water side.

The rest of the way is coral and some beach. Nice hike. Bring water and snacks. Took us 35 minutes to get out there. You can get inside, but the stairs up are pretty sketchy. Rotted wood and missing steps, I skipped going up it. Didn’t want to be stuck in a Bahamas hospital.

Coming back we tried to find a trail that connected the houses, but it’s either overgrown or doesn’t exist. Went back the way we came. Had concerns getting back into Atlantis, but when we got close to Atlantis we went up a stairway from the beach we saw workers using. That led us to a utility area and parking lots for workers. Walked out that way to the main entrance.

Have cruised past the lighthouse many times. Glad to see it up close.

We were staying at the Cove and were on the beach. I decided to try to make it to the lighthouse. It’s much farther than it appears. There is a way to avoid the water to get there, but it involves trespassing. I did do the fairly difficult swim on the way down and trespassed my way back. Too exhausted to do the return swim. It’s a several hour adventure from Atlantis to the lighthouse. Some great photo ops, if you decide to make the trek. This part of the island is not maintained so lots of trash and hurricane remnants.

Si vede da ogni parte della baia con il suo colore bianco acceso. Per raggiungerlo bisogbna prendere un sentiero dall'hotel non sempre facile . Risale al 1817 ed è il più antico delle isole amche se è alto solo 19 metri . Allego alcune fotografie

Não visitei o farol, mas ele foi parte das minhas fotos nas visitas a Junkanoo Beach e ao Fort Charlotte.
Em uma próxima oportunidade tentarei visitar a partir do Atlantis na Paradise Island.

It is all the latest reviews stated except we saw or heard no dogs. We slitherered through a small opening in a gate and walked through a wide open gate 30-40 feet away at the first wall. We did trespass. It’s not necessary to start at Atlantis though. We walked through the tunnel, through the Atlantis employee parking lot, there are guards but they didn’t seem to mind, passed a oil storage area and an Indian Ashram retreat. The man watching the oil tanks actually asked if we were looking for the Ashram, we said yes, and pointed us in the right direction. From there it is all beach and coral. My wife and I were careful and are in pretty good shape but we both had sandals and are both 65 years old. You can do it.

I was looking for a place to take pictures with my drone. Since you cannot fly it on the Atlantis’s property. I read the reviews on this site before my trip, a lot of good tips
like;
-The light house is on public property
-Must were shoes, I wore Teva’s
-Go during low tide
-It was an hour hike from the Cove
-Had to climb over one 6’ wall there was a bolder in the corner. There was an open wrought iron gate on both sides of the wall. Didn’t see anybody. I just hopped the wall (that was on public property)
-Be careful of some of the floor boards inside the light house.

Beautiful views

The Nassau Harbor Lighthouse is currently unmanned. It's open and no longer maintained. The lighthouse is at the western tip of Paradise Island and is only legally accessible from the beach. It is exactly 2 and 3/4 miles from the Atlantis Cove Beach. If you are staying at Atlantis, that's your start point. If you are not, you'll need to start another mike down the beach at the cabbage beach public access next to Riu. After you cross paradise beach you will hit a puke of boulders and corals. Sure shoes with good soles are highly recommended as the coral is sharp. Shortly after traversing the coral you will come to a sturdy stone wall. The wall goes all
The way to the water line and is about 6' high. The property owners land ends at the high tide line. So the wall is to long and not legal. The wall is shorter where it meets the sand above the coral but still outside the gate. That's a good spot to climb over. We used drift wood to use as a step up. It's sand in both sides so there's no real
Risk to injury. After that wall, the coral field continues for some way until you hit a second wall. But the second wall Was partially removed so you can walk around it at slack or low tides. Just passed this second wall the coral fades back into a top Class beach with loads of shells. Stay on the water line though as the first house after the second wall keeps pit bulls. And if you venture close to the property line, the dogs bark and chase. The coral resumes just before the Lighthouse. The lighthouse is open and you can go in. The keepers quarters are on the coral Field on the Harbor side. But are now a ruin. It's a beautiful view from the lighthouse and well Worth the hike. As I said it's a 5&3/4 mile round trip Hike. Took us about 3 hours including some shell hunting on the way back.

This trip is not for the faint hearted. The lighthouse is about 35 min walk from Atlantis property. Most of the first part of the walk is soft sand that takes a lot of effort. After most of the beach you will approach coral breakers and 2 walls. The coral is very jagged so make sure you wear SHOES, flip flops would be a mistake. Then you have 2 walls to go around. The first you can go around, but the second you either have to go over or trespass about 5 feet onto someone's property where there is a gate. Then more sand and coral.
As mentioned in someone else's post there are dogs, but these are a resident's that are on the beach. They seem intimidating, one mouthed my hand but didn't bite. I'd suggest bringing a treat of some sort. There are plenty of conch shells and dead sea fans if you are looking to collect them.

The lighthouse itself is open and in need of repair so enter at your own risk.

**make sure you bring shoes, a light backpack, sunscreen, and WATER. There are no places to stop and get any.**

There is also no road that goes there, all beach. Total time is about 2 hours from Atlantis and back. This is really for adults. The rocks and coral are sharp and take some skills to get over.I thought it was cool, but it was hike. I went early in the morning, which is your best bet to avoid the heat.

Good luck !

I did the walk this morning. First you have to climb over the rocks at the first property, next to the no trespassing signs. You climb along the property's wall. Then it gets easier, then there's an actual wall you somehow have to manage to climb over. There's no house at the next property, so not sure why this wall goes all the way to the waters edge so you cannot go around. The next wall you can walk past. Then there's s rocky part with mean dogs. Pick up a stick (I found a rusty iron rod) to scare m away. Then just keep going. There's plenty of seaglass to be found as well on the stretch close to the wreck (of???). I went to the top but was so scared I was gonna plunge through the old wooden floors. A tourist boat also yelled at me through their megaphone, couldn't understand him. I just wanted to get out of there by then. Would go back for better pictures, but not alone!

Don't let the hard-times stories stop you....The beach IS public and is open to all. The walk does take about 45 min there from Atlantis. My son and I did it one am BUT take sandals or shoes (I always take my TEVA's).
