Lots of guests decide to come to New Providence just to experience the breath-taking beaches that the island group is known for.
If you are a big beach fan, British Colonial Hilton is the right spot for you. This site is situated right on the water, so tourists can spend every day in the sun if that will make them happy. Beware that there are a lot of people who enjoy this popular section of the Bahamas, setting up an active and social scene; however, it can get very congested with people.
Of course, since British Colonial Hilton was built directly on Western Esplanade Beach, hanging out at the beach is one of the main attractions 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.
