If you're staying on Paradise Island, you have to stay on Cabbage Beach. The 2-mile-long strand is a ribbon of sort, ivory sand, lapped by water that ranges in color from delicate aquamarine to vibrant turquoise to deepest cobalt. Riu Palace Paradise Island's location, at the midway point of the beach, makes getting your recommended daily requirement of "vitamin sea" a cinch. And if you fancy a look-see (or some casino time) at Paradise Island's best-known resort, Atlantis, it's only a three-minute walk down the shore. Bonus: All 397 rooms in the 14-story high-rise have either partial or full beach views.
