Very beautiful beach...white, soft sand and clear turquoise water. We had to walk quite a distance to get here (from the water taxi port through Atlantis and out the other side). Be warned, the surf here is no joke. We are three grown adults, and we were being buffeted around by the waves. I was kind of shocked that parents... More

We decided to check out this beach because of the good reviews on TA. So glad we did! The water is a beautiful blue/green and the sand is soft and white. Love it!! There are beach vendors who will sell you drinks in a coconut for $20, with free refills. My husband talked them into 2/$30. They also rent loung... More

Took a taxi from our cruise ship, only $4 per person each way. Not too crowded....able to rent 2 lounge chairs for $10 though he wanted $20. I believe you could purchase food/drinks but we didn't....this is a free beach next to Atlantis.

We were staying at a house in the Bahamas and decided to take in Paradise Island and Cabbage Beach. Fortunately we did not plan on spending any more time at the beach than to just look around. First off it is a beautiful beach. Like other reviews I agree the water was very fast moving and dropped off quickly. Secondly... More

We've traveled all over the Caribbean and the beach here is a favorite. Warm, clear, some nice waves when windy, powdery sand and those amazing Bahamian water colors.

We went here because it was free and reviews here said it was nice. Its a nice beach and the swimming is ok, the place gets packed to the point its like being in a pool are on a ship on a sea day. The locals try to scam you at every turn, not one of them is honest and... More

If you want peace and quiet, try another beach. This one is relatively small but lined with hotels. Most notably, the Atlantis. Lots of action is available, with water sports rentals, and bar with music.

While this beach was pretty, the surf was too much for young children. Saunders beach was much better for kids, and there were no vendors there driving you crazy to buy things!

Our airbnb was two blocks from the center public access to this beach on Paradise Island, so we visited several times. For the most part, this beach is spacious (45 minute stroll from one end to the other), clean, the water is crystal clear, and the view is beautiful (it faces away from Nassau). As I read through recent reviews... More

I don't write a lot of reviews, but after visiting this beach, I really wanted to warn people about the strong waves and undertow here...and it's not even predictable. Every time I thought the water had calmed down and it was safe enough to go in, I had been surprised at the water volatility. I did not feel I could... More
