The Versailles Gardens on Paradise Island comprise a spectacularly lush multi-terraced 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. Hand-laid rock ridges extend to the east and to the west of this path. These ridges are composed of reddish-tan 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 box-cut hedge design.
