If you are staying on New Providence or Paradise Island, this is the best beach. If you like it when it is quiet, go in the morning - before 11am. Alternatively, visit the eastern part of the beach. We went on a few different days and it didn't get too busy. You can rent chairs for $10 USD (if you... More

There was a lot of locals all over trying to sell you things. A lot of garbage and did not feel safe.

Gorgeous beach with good snorkeling at the end! Looks exactly like a postcard, and is generally clean and calm.

We went to this beach when the ship was in port for the day. We took a taxi for about $4 pp and went pretty early in the morning. We went around 9 AM and the beach was pretty empty. A person helped us rent two lounge chairs for about $15 per chair and they put them not far from... More

This is a gorgeous beach easily accessed from Sunrise Beach Club where we were staying, but also with public access, though that looked a little sketchy with a gang of local men yelling at passersby to see if they wanted cabs (on the street side), chairs, etc. We took our own towels and were asked if we needed anything by...

This beach stretches from the picturesque landscapes of the One and Only Ocean Club Golf Course at least a mile west to the Atlantis Resort and Casino. For miles the sun-kissed skies paint the ocean radiant colors of the softest shades of green to the deepest darkest expressions of blue! White powder soft sand engulfs your toes as you inhale...

Cabbage beach is the public beach in Paradise island. We asked the door man at our hotel, who pointed us to the public access point next to the RIU hotel.The access road was not well paved and the beach was not very clean. It is a bit crowded with many rentals available for lounge chairs or jetski. On the 2nd... More

This was my favorite beach out of the many we visited on Nassau and Paradise Island and it seems to be the most maintained. It was also one of the most touristy (but for a good reason). We entered along the side of the Paradise Island Beach Club. They rent beach chairs there for $10. The water and the sand... More

When we went to get our passport stamped in Nassau we asked the lady what beach we should go, she told us Cabbage Beach. The minute we got out of the cab men were trying to carry our stuff for money. We could not relax because people were trying to sell us stuff the whole time. On the other hand... More
