We bought tickets online for Atlantis Aquaventure for the same price as the park charges through Majestic Tours. Our kids (ages 18 and 28) had a blast- they took a group cab for 5 bucks each one way. They picked up their armbands for the park inside the Majestic tour desk in the Atlantis Hotel, Coral Towers. My husband and I went to Cabbage Beach on Paradise Island- it was pretty nice, but the water was really rough and had a big drop-off close to the shore. Not good for little kids...we saw lots of folks get knocked down by the waves. It was easy to rent chairs/umbrellas, and food and drink was pretty handy. Lots of peddlers which were pretty bothersome at times. Atlantis has a nice snack bar a little way down the beach with large clean restrooms. We took the water taxi both ways to the beach which was fun- nice scenery and the "tour guides" were fun and colorful.
