Bahamas beaches take me away! What is your favorite?
Ha, thanks for the suggestions! I love looking at Pink Sands Beach, just for the unusual color, but as far as favorite overall beaches go, I'd have to say Cable Beach, or Cat Island if I'm looking for something more quiet. Gorgeous!
I would vote for Cable Beach as well...it's busy, sure, but that's part of the fun. Many of the best resorts on the island are located right along the beach, and anything you want to do there. Cable Beach also has a cool history behind it.
beaches in Bahamas
find it so hard to choose even one! I guess my top favorites have to be Fernandez Bay, Manjack Cay, Baker's Bay, Great Guana Cay, Pipe Creek, Ocean beach, Great Guana Cay and Tahiti Beach. I should also add the dozens of unnamed, isolated beaches of the Bahamas...
snorkeling in Bahamas
I've been to: Abacos, Exumas, Harbour Island, Eleuthera, Grand Bahama, and Nassau, and if you want to snorkel head to either Provo, Caymans or Eleuthera. This last one has decent snorkeling in areas and nice places to stay just across the beach. However, you need a car in Eleuthera to explore and get to the different beaches.
My favourite In Bahama is the Stocking Island which can be reached by boat. Its white sand, turquoise water, coral gardens and the undersea caves make its the most thrilling island!
When many people think of the Bahamas, the first thing that comes to mind is the stretch of fancy resorts and casinos that line the beaches of Nassau, Paradise Island and Cable Beach. Many of the smaller islands of the Bahamas, like Harbour Island, break that stereotype. Pink Sands Beach is the place to go for natural beauty, elegant resorts and most importantly, three miles of perfectly pink sand and gentle waters. The ocean is ideal for swimming - warm throughout the year and generally calm, protected from the rolling waves of the Atlantic by a coral reef.
