In truth, Marsh Harbour's beaches are the least popular among swimmers and watersports enthusiasts.  Sailing and fishing are much more desired pastimes here.  There are three private beaches that are only for guests of the hotels that are set upon them, but most people will recommend that those looking for a good beach with easy access head south of Little Harbour instead. 

Which Beaches Are Available?

You will discover several beaches to enjoy in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some of the beaches, for those who enjoy this relaxing pastime. Simply click on individual beach names for a detailed article concerning that particular stretch of sand.

Tahiti Beach

Tahiti Beach: The waters here are popular with sail-boaters, and the isolated beach is fantastically quiet and romantic. You can't drive here, so expect some time alone away from the crowds.

Another option for beach-goers to consider is Garabonzo Beach. Garabonoz Beach happens to be on a lesser developed, but populated island. This means you will be able to find plenty of places dock your boat and drive, but you will not be able to fly directly onto Elbow Cay.

Snake Cay: The beach at Snake Cay features dazzling emerald waters and a thin strip of white sand; just enough to lay out a blanket and soak up some sun.

The following chart enables you to get more information about the beaches found in and around the area.
