North West Point Beach

Aptly name for its location just south of the island's north-west tip, North West Beach is one of Inagua's secluded picturesque hideaways that is perfect for all of your favorite beach day activities.

Situated on the island of Inagua, 10.8 miles north of Matthew Town, You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying very close. Couples and families who want to have more of the beach to themselves should check out North West Point Beach, a pretty, but less popular part of the coast.

How to Access The Beach
This beach is located just 25 mile from Baycaner Hotel.

Amenities and Ambiance

North West Beach stands out for the honeycomb rocks that appear in the water, acting as stepping stones away from the shore. The beach itself is a long stretch of beige colored sand and features cool, bright blue waters. Visitors find that their days are best spent sun bathing, shelling, snorkeling ad picnicking, but the area just behind the beach is a great place to do some hiking as well.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot. You'll find the waters off-shore to be of good snorkeling quality, so purchase or rent some gear if you want to do some underwater exploration.

North West Point Beach brings visitors an idyllic and peaceful retreat, in part because the surrounding region is more rural than urban.

What's Nearby



The mood here——social and lively, or virtually empty—— will vary depending on the time of day, particularly in the high season when hotels overflow with tourists.

Don't anticipate finding any of The Bahamas' popular hotels and resorts lining this beach, though if you're hoping to avoid masses of travelers, the shortage of places to stay should be a welcomed sight.


You might not run into any places to grab a bit to eat right on this beach, so it would be a good idea to plan a picnic for your time spent at the beach.
