Quite a few people plan to vacation on New Providence in anticipation of seeing the fabulous beaches that the islands are so well known for. Many guests are excited to learn that Sandyport Beaches Resort is on the water, so you won't need to go very far to enjoy the pleasant coast.

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.
