Local Beaches

head to the shore for sun and fun

Cable Beach (New Providence Island)

Westwind II sits on the glittering shoreline of Cable Beach. We have easy access to shops, casinos, restaurants, watersports, and bars. It's a sandy 6.5km- (4-mile-) long strip, with a great array of facilities and activities.

Old Fort Beach (New Providence Island)

With pristine white sands and turquoise water, this is the least developed major beach on New Providence Island, near the relatively unpopulated western tip of The Bahamas's most crowded island. Many of its biggest fans are homeowners from nearby Lyford Cay, whose homes are among the most expensive in The Bahamas. The beach is least crowded on weekdays, and windiest throughout the winter. There's great water-skiing in summer, when waters are the calmest.

Cabbage Beach (Paradise Island)

Think Vegas in the tropics. It seems as if most of the sunbathers dozing on the sands here are recovering from the previous evening's partying, and it's likely to be crowded near the megahotels, but you can find a bit more solitude on the beach's isolated northwestern extension (Paradise Beach) -- which is accessible only by boat or on foot. Lined with palms, sea grapes, and casuarinas, the sands are broad and stretch for at least 3km (2 miles).
