Versailles Gardens

The Versailles Gardens on Paradise Island comprise a spectacularly lush multiterraced landscape set in a rectangular design which is about 75 feet wide. The gardens extend approximately a quarter of a mile from the Ocean Club to the southern edge of the island, overlooking the waters of Nassau Harbor. Throughout the length of Versailles a stone path covered in Bermuda grass connects the terraces and demarcates Versailles into two mirrored halves. Handlaid rock ridges extend to the east and to the west of this path. These ridges are composed of reddishtan flint rock and grey sandstone, which over time has acquired a rusty grey facade. These ridges provide the basis on which richly colored purple Bougainvillea stand, evenly trimmed in a boxcut hedge design.
