This 14th Century French stone monastery was brought over brick by brick to Paradise Island during the 1920s by newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst. Years later, grocery-store heir Huntington Hartford had the site rebuilt at the current location presiding over Nassau Harbour. Today, many couples take their nuptial vows at this historic Old World venue. The site is now owned by the Ocean Club but all visitors are welcome to visit and enjoy free of charge.
What a wonderful find. Thanks to a dinner mate and new cruise friend I learned of the Cloisters and the Garden. It is a FREE and PRICELESS experience. I am going back to the Bahamas in November and I can't wait to take my family.
It's beautiful, and one of the only free things to do on Paradise Island! We walked there twice during our stay, and only saw 10 or less people there both times. The arches are all covered with vines with beautiful blossoms. The atmosphere is very peaceful (except when the booze cruise sails by) and refreshing, with a view of the harbor.
I don't know much about the place other than it's a French monastary brought over piece by piece. There's no tours, so you'll have to do your own research.
It's not very large - takes probably about 15 min. to explore. It's just nice to sit and absorb the peacefulness. Anyone who enjoys architecture and some history would like the Cloisters. I'd recommend it for a nice break from the crowds.
