Cable Beach - Nassau Bahamas

Cable Beach, Nassau BahamasCable Beach is New Providence’s premier resort area. It is to Nassau what South Beach is to Miami. The only problem is that the major hotels and resorts have gobbled up all the best bits. Of what’s left, though, you can pick your spot.

Take the time to drive along West Bay Street from Nassau to and beyond the resorts and you’re sure to find something to suit you. Be careful, though. In some places the water can be quite rough, and the underlying rocks sharp.

Some of the public areas are very popular with the locals, especially at weekends, and can become a little crowded for my taste. Still, whatever you might need to enjoy a fine time of sand, sea and sun is available almost anywhere along the stretch: vendors offer a wide variety of snacks, ice cream, and all sorts neat, and sometimes dubious, trinkets and souvenirs; the ladies can even get their hair braided. Here and there you’ll find little fruit stands where the goodies are almost always fresh and cool. For lunch a variety of cafés and restaurants offer local cuisine, fresh seafood and, of course, as much local libation as you can handle. All in all, Cable Beach comes highly recommended.
