On the island's north coast is the resort area of Cable Beach which features a four mile stretch of white-sand beaches and resort properties. There is a vibrancy about the area, and you can even often hear strains of island music playing from the nearby hotel. Although there are no bathroom facilities on any of the beaches, the resorts do have them and beachgoers are able to make do.
You'll find several beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Just click on the name of each beach for a detailed article concerning that particular beach.
Goodman Beach: A real beach paradise, this popular destination near the center of bustling Nassau is frequented by tourists and locals alike. It has become a favorite spot for joggers and food vendors, and the true Bahamas vibe is capped off by the reggae and calypso music you will hear all along the beach.
Another location worth considering is Orange Hill Beach. The beach is located right off West Bay Road, and is easy to reach. However, it is usually only visited by guests of nearby hotels, and there is no dedicated parking area.
Junkanoo Beach: The beach is right next to Western Esplanade Beach in the north of Nassau and is not as sprawling as some other nearby beaches you may find. Thus, it stays relatively quiet except for certain part of the year - Spring Break, for example.
