Western Esplanade Beach

Needless to say, since British Colonial Hilton is located on Western Esplanade Beach, laying out in the sun is a popular pastime at this property. A tremendously popular beach mainly due to its close proximity to and easy access from Nassau's busy downtown, this has become a favorite stop for many spring breakers. With snack bars and restaurants close by, and reggae music booming from the speakers, this can be a fun place to hang out for a few hours, particularly if you're already in the area. For guests who are eager for some variety, its not difficult to find another beach to experience. Click on the names below to view a detailed page:

The most obvious one to visit is Junkanoo Beach. 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.

Vacationers may also stop in at Cable Beach at which many visitors create a stir of activity. 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. This beach is a fast cab trip away.
