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.

Set on the island of New Providence, Bonefish Pond Beach is on the South coast of the island, You might think about stopping by regardless of whether you are staying particularly close by. There are advantages to visiting a beach that isn't packed full of hotel guests; beautiful but out-of-the-way beaches 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.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.

If you happen to prefer beach days that provide a tranquil place to escape, then you will want to try Bonefish Pond Beach; it's tucked away within a less urban part of the region.
