If you are wanting to snorkel, a location where that's an option is Casuarina Beach. Stunning pink sands and aquamarine waters typify Casuarina Beach. Just off shore is a patch of reef where visitors can swim with parrotfish and turtles.

Another place for beach-goers to consider is Pirates Cove Beach. You don't need to be hunting for buried treasure or wearing an eye patch to enjoy a day at Pirates Cove Beach. Instead, this is a popular spot on the small Staniel Cay for hiking and sunbathing.

Colonial Beach: A quieter area than some of the nearby beaches, Colonial Beach is a great spot catch some rays and watch the many boats coming in and out as they make their way around Paradise Island and into Nassau Harbor. There's also an interesting lighthouse - the Nassau Port Lighthouse - you'll want to check out a stone's thrown to the west.
