The Cloister

Just blocks from Sunrise Beach, the Cloister rises up as a favorite destination for a sightseeing stroll. The 12th century cloister was reassembled stone by stone amid beautiful gardens on the island, after being disassembled and imported from France. It is a popular venue for weddings and a look out over the harbor side of Paradise Island. While the gardens are part of the Ocean Club property and some areas are accessible only by Ocean Club guests, the view from the walkway alone is breathtaking.
