Pleasant Bay Beach is a popular spot amongst South Andros locals, hosting such events as the Coconut Festival there annually. Every other day of the year guests will find it to be calm and secluded.

Pleasant Bay Beach stands out from other beaches because it's perfect for escaping the hustle of The Bahamas' urban areas. Most other beaches in the Bahamas may be just as pretty, but are usually more crowded since they're located by some of the most popular tourist areas in town.

How to Access The Beach

Not surprisingly, you can access Pleasant Bay Beach off Pleasant Bay Road which runs parallel to the beach. A dirt road leads from Pleasant Bay Road, through the trees, and down to the beach where you can park just before the sand.

Amenities and Ambiance

Backed only by one resort property and miles of trees, Pleasant Bay Beach has smooth tan sand leading right up to murky and shallow aquamarine waters.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.
