"One great way to meet people in Paradise Island can be through taking part in fun activities such as sightseeing and exploring the beautiful beaches. As you explore the island, you can talk to locals and other tourists who are also enjoying their time on The Bahamas. Doing this will give you an opportunity to connect with interesting people who you wouldn't have met in any other way. You can also join local social groups or clubs and attend their events. Additionally, it's also a great idea to join a religious group or attend church, as churchgoers and members of a particular faith often form a community for support and camaraderie and can make for great friendships," said one expat living in Paradise Island.
