Paradise Cove drew the attention of Kenny Chesney's grassroots initiative, No Shoes Reefs not only for its secluded beauty but for its use of reef balls to help build up its receding shoreline and also to create a designed reef that also acts as a snorkel and scuba trail for guests. Now the two are partnering to build onto the existing work to create Eco Adventures for guests to choose from. 30% of each piece sold goes directly into Paradise Cove's eco projects!


Early 2014 we deployed 260 Reef Balls in front of Paradise Cove Beach Resort! Reef Balls are the world’s leading designed artificial reef modules. Currently there are over 632,000 of these units deployed in over 70 different countries, including the Bahamas. They are simply the safest and most effective way to create sustainable marine reef habitat. The PH balanced concrete structures are made with an easy to use, portable fiberglass mold system.

The concrete used to make Reef Balls contains micro silica, creating a super high strength, abrasion resistant, concrete. They are also treated to create a rough surface texture in order to promote settling by marine organisms such as corals, algae, coralline algae and sponges. Studies have shown that these Reef Balls create life when correctly placed in the water and each one of them can add up to 500 lbs. of biomass per year. That’s more fish, lobsters, coral and algae nourishing our marine environment. Spill over effect means more fish available from West End to Eight Mile Rock.
