Bahama Princess Beach

Set on Grand Bahama Island, Bahama Princess Beach is a calm stretch of sand where visitors can go to escape some of the crowds that typically gather on the beaches in the Bahamas.

Positioned in Xanadu Beach, two miles south-southwest of downtown Freeport, Bahama Princess Beach is on the South West coast of Grand Bahama Island. You should think about stopping by even if you are not staying in the immediate vicinity. Visitors should keep in mind that, though Bahama Princess Beach isn't considered a quiet and secluded part of the coast, it's not the most crowded beach in the Bahamas either. This makes it an excellent choice for families who want to enjoy a beach with mild activity but also want to skip out on the crowds.

Bahama Princess Beach is located near Xanadu Beach and Dundee Bay, and is accessible via Dundee Bay Drive.

Amenities and Ambiance
