Beaches

Tropic Of Cancer Beach

You will find an abundance of beaches to choose from on and near the island. If you prefer having a lot of room around you, you may be pleasantly surprised, several of the beaches are relatively secluded and quiet. You can click on the beach names for more detail concerning that part of the coast.

A local beach that's good for snorkeling is Stocking Island Beach. Like many of the other beaches on Stocking Island, Stocking Island Beach features some of the finest and whitest sands in the Bahamas. The waters at this beach are bright turquoise and very calm, thanks to the coral reef that lies fairly close to shore.

Another location for beach-goers to consider is Hamburger Beach. Hamburger Beach can be reached via a ferry from the dock at George Town.

Starfish Beach: Take a small boat or water taxi for $15 to this beach.
