The most convenient one to visit is Delaporte Beach. For being just next door over from one of the most popular beaches in all of the Bahamas, Delaporte Beach is surprisingly quiet. However, no frequent visitor of this beach is going to complain about the pristine peace and quiet.
If instead you're looking for plenty of sand, surf and seclusion, Junkanoo Beach is an alternative worth considering. 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.
