Landmark Attractions

The Caves

Many travelers choose to visit The Caves. It is located in western Cable Beach. This easy to miss spot was once favored for its elusive nature -- it functioned as an ideal hideout for pirates that roamed the Bahamas and Caribbean Islands. As you explore this cave, it won't be hard to see why pirates chose this place for their home.

If you are looking to do more sight-seeing, visit Fort Charlotte. It is located 3.3 mi. East of central Cable Beach. Built immediately after the American Revolution to reinforce the island, Fort Charlotte is a colonial fort that has never actually seen battle. Despite this, it stands today as a reminder that the Caribbean was not always the peaceful paradise it is today.
