Taino Beach

This humble beach stretches along the coast, not calling much attention to itself. Despite that, it has become very popular among the visitors of the nearby area.

Located on the edge of Freeport, four miles east of the "downtown" area, Taino Beach is on the South West coast of Grand Bahama Island. You should consider stopping by regardless of whether you are staying very close. Although the Bahamas has more secluded beaches than Taino Beach, it offers just the right amount of privacy and atmosphere to attract families and couples alike.

Amenities and Ambiance

Other than one section that has a pier and some chairs, Taino Beach is free of development and is generally free of any crowds that other nearby beaches tend to have.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business. Fortunately, beach chairs are available for guests hoping for a place to relax by the water.

Taino Beach and its availability of conveniences can be found well within a major tourist area. If throngs of people are something you want to avoid, it'll be a decent idea to make plans against other visitors, like heading to the beach for a breakfast picnic and cool swim. If you do not, you could risk the amenities being overwhelmed.
