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.  

Beach Choices In The Area

You will find several beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Simply click on the name of each beach for more detail concerning that part of the coast.

Cable 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 place that beach-goers can consider 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 waters in between downtown Nassau and Paradise Island - upon which Junkanoo Beach look out onto - are constantly busy, often ushering cruise ships in and out. And with downtown Nassau to the rear, it may not be the quietest beach in the Bahamas, but it's nevertheless a quiet, relaxing place to spend an afternoon, particularly when you've tired of shopping and sight-seeing.

Take a moment to read the table just below for a listing of beaches available in and around the area.
