Beach was beautiful! However, it's scary when you first arrive. Many locals, waiting like car salesmen, for tourists to arrive. We were asked over 7 times if we wanted chairs, and... read more

We went here on a trip, and the beach itself was beautiful, but beware of the beach hustlers! The beach was gorgeous, with warm water and beautiful sand. You can rent jetskis, snorkel equipment, etc. Beware of the hustlers!! They'll charge you and arm and a leg for "beach chairs and unlimited drinks." We paid them $50/couple and they disappeared!...

We car pooled to Cabbage in a FULL van with driver. Chairs, umbrellas, food & drink, water sports & toys all available when you get there. If this is what you have in mind for the day, I say go for it. Friendly local folk at the beach to help you get settled in.

We were talked into visiting Cabbage Beach for a day's beach day. Took a private taxi to the beach - and then, after being left off at the top of a very dirty hill, discovered a beach covered body-to-body, all the locals of Nassau! We were told there were umbrellas and chairs available - well, if you want to spend... More

We spend the day on cabbage beach when we came to port. It's a cheap taxi ride from the port. $2 per person. Sadly the day was windy so waves were high and current strong. So beaches were red flagged but we still sat on the edge and played in the waves. The sand is the most amazing white coral... More

We were at Cabbage Beach while on a Norwegian Cruise from Miami stopping at St Thomas, Tortola and Nassau. The cab ride was only $8 US return to and from the Port. Rented two beach chairs for 10$. The attnendants watched stuff while we enjoyed walking on the beach. Beautiful turquoise warm water with wonderful waves. Frolicked like ten year... More

Was on a cruise and took a taxi ($4 per person) directly to the beach, When you arrive there are locals trying to rent you chairs and umbrellas which we did not need and we walked east away from the hotels and found a nice quiet place to sit down away from everyone. Once there no one bothered us. There... More

I am throughly disgusted on this trip to Nassau, the garbage has gotten out of hand. This beach is literally a straw beach as those locals who I get are only trying to make a living sell tourists drinks out of coconuts which of course come with straws, which then are stuck in the sand and of course get into...

The pictures of Cabbage beach on this site reflect a beach that was completely different than the one my family and I experienced. The locals "thugs" have a major racket of swindling the tourists out of $$$. They lied about accessing Atlantis. Overcharged for the chairs. The "all you can drink coconut drinks" did not include the demanded tip per... More

Beach was beautiful! However, it's scary when you first arrive. Many locals, waiting like car salesmen, for tourists to arrive. We were asked over 7 times if we wanted chairs, and that is just going up the hill to the beach. Then more while first walking on the beach. Then, do you want a cigar,your hair braided,a coconut drink,beer,water,banana boat... More

We entered just beyond the RIU. The water is absolutely beautiful, I did get pummeled by waves, but it seemed a little less intense in other areas. There are men approaching you constantly for chairs, wave runners, and weed.

Thank Jen N
