On December 6. 2016, just after sunrise, I watched the Carnival Valor approach Nassau Harbor and pass the Paradise Island Lighthouse. This was the third of four cruise ships docking at Nassau, Bahamas. The four cruise ships brought a total of 9,528 tourists to explore Nassau.
The Paradise Island Light was the first lighthouse built in the Bahamas. The lighthouse was constructed 1817 at the western tip of the Paradise Island, previously known as or Hog Island Light.house for the island's previous name. The lighthouse is 69 feet (21 m) above sea level.
