The most convenient option is Cable Beach. Because you can find this beach about a mile to the west-northwest of this resort, your party won't have to travel far to enjoy the sun and surf. This is one of the most popular Bahamanian beaches, and for good reason. It stretches on for over 2 miles and runs along many interesting shops, bars, resorts, and restaurants. Importantly (especially for those with young children), it will have restrooms and showers for your convenience.
If you're looking for a more peaceful beach scene, Junkanoo Beach might be just right for you. 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.
