The beaches on New Providence are some of the most anticipated tourist sites in the Caribbean. If all you can think about is the beach, Westwind Club is the perfect locale for you. This lodging is set along the water, so guests can spend every day soaking up the sun if they want.
Of course, since Westwind Club was built directly on Cable Beach, relaxing at the water's edge is one of the main attractions here. 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.

One of the closest picks is 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. You can spend as much time as you want at this coastal site, considering there are restrooms available.
If you're looking for an enjoyable secluded beach, Junkanoo Beach might be worth a visit. 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. It's located three and a half miles east of the property.
