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.

How to Access The Beach

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

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.
