We're staying at the other end of the island (Riu) and have a rental car so decided to drive to the beach and save a mile walking along the shoreline. There was plenty of parking when we visited and the beach had hardly anyone on it. There are Police Guards at the entrance so guess that means it's pretty safe... More

This is my 2nd time in Nassau but 1st time at the beach. I was on a 3 day cruise that stayed overnight in Nassau. We were originally going to rent scooters but when I found out they drive on the wrong side of the road I didn't want to risk it so we caught a taxi for $4pp each... More

Went here while cruising with Royal Caribbean. First time I've been to a beach that had clear water. Very nice to be able to walk in and see your feet even when you're chest deep. Great place to find good conch shells also as they were just washing up to shore and easy to spot in the water.

I hope you find this review helpful, even though we never made it all the way to the beach. We had been to Nassau before, so asked cruise crew for suggestions. They recommended CABBAGE BEACH on Paradise Island which is free if you use the public entrance. We had also been told the water taxi was cheaper than a taxi...don't... More

We traveled here from our cruise ship that docked in Nassau. We took the water ferry over to Paradise Island, it cost $8 round trip, which was pretty reasonable. Of course the "tour guides" aboard the boats expect tips and they cram people on the ferries and you're usually waiting around to make sure enough people are on it, so... More

We stopped in Nassau on our cruise last week and it happened to be my husband's and my 5th wedding anniversary. We had some family with us including his mom who preformed our wedding 5 yrs ago, and she renewed our vows for us right there on the beach. It was truly breathtakingly beautiful! The water was still so warm... More

Water is beautiful and has nice blueish/green reflection . The send is covered with corals. It is soft and feels very clean.

Not easy to get to unless you have a car or take taxi. Parking is VERY limited as it is right next to the Paradise Island Beach Club at the end of Ocean Club Drive. About 100 yard walk to the beach and very steep steps down to the sand. NOT disability accessible. The sand is very white with essentially... More

Not much to say except that the beach was extremely crowded, which was expected. There are vendors selling drinks, even alcoholic. You can rent lounge chairs, umbrellas, jet skis, and more.
