From Cable Beach to Paradise Island and everywhere in between, the beaches of New Providence Island vary. What you should know about these beaches, traveling from one end to the next, is that the southern beaches are sparse and hardly worth making an effort for, the northwest beaches are quiet and secluded, and the west coast beaches are private for those who reside in the accompanying gated communities. The busiest areas of beaches are on Paradise Island, which features three miles of gorgeous beaches typically lined with Atlantis Resort guests; and Cable Beach, where things are lively and manage to remain pristine despite the numerous resorts that line the shore.
You will find an abundance of beaches to consider visiting on the island. Whether you'd rather be part of a busy beach scene, or you like having more of the beach to yourself, you can find a beach that appeals to you.

Love Beach: Surrounded by extravagant beach homes, Love Beach is popular amongst lovers of all things upscale and high class, yet it remains as unpretentious and natural as any beach can.
A second option that beach-goers can consider is Orange Hill Beach. Despite being the location of a couple beach hotels, the shore of Orange Hill Beach is quiet and offers visitors the kind of privacy that does not not exist at nearby Cable Beach.
Delaporte Beach: For being just next door over from one of the most popular beaches in all of the Bahamas, Delaporte Beach is surprisingly quiet. However, no frequent visitor of this beach is going to complain about the pristine peace and quiet.
