Bonefish Pond Beach

The beach at Bonefish Pond, also known as Cay Point, curves around the wonderfully interesting coastal wetland area, Bonefish Pond National Park. Located deep inside the park, it is certainly not a beach frequented by many tourists, and will probably only be reached by the most adventurous travelers.

Located near the center of the island of New Providence, Bonefish Pond Beach is on the South coast of the island, You might think about stopping by whether or not you're staying nearby. Even if you love being in the middle of all the action, there are some perks to visiting a beach that hasn't been "discovered" by thousands of tourists; secluded parts of the coast like Bonefish Pond Beach make great places to spread out and relax.

How to Access The Beach
Heading south on Baillou Hill Rd from downtown Nassau, continue straight when you reach Cowpen Rd. This will put you on S Beach Rd. Take a right on Marshall, and continue on it for as long as you can. Eventually, it turns into a dirt road. If you're not in a 4X4 (or even if you are, really), you'll need to do some walking. Keep heading west on the trails that run along the coast.

Amenities and Ambiance

If you do choose to make the trek out here, you'll be rewarded with the isolation and serenity of one of the Out Islands, while still remaining pretty close to Nassau. The water off shore is pale blue, and as clear as anywhere else in the Bahamas. Hiking the rocky coast at the southeastern tip is also quite an experience. The wide variety of native flora and fauna make this a real treat for nature-lovers.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site.

If you choose beach days that bring guests a quiet place to escape, then a good choice for you is Bonefish Pond Beach; it's located in a less urbanized part of the region.
