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'll discover an abundance of beaches to consider visiting on the island. Regardless of whether you prefer people watching, or you'd rather have more of the beach to yourself, you should find some appealing options. For a detailed review of one particular beach simply click on the names of the ones you are interested in.
One beach where snorkeling is a popular is Rose Island West End Beach. This quiet beach is almost always secluded so visitors have the opportunity to spend their day in the soft, stark white sand, aquamarine waters without interruption.
A second alternative to consider is Love Beach. Love Beach is accessible via West Bay Street.
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.
