My wife and I had one day in Nassau while on a cruise to the Bahamas. I had read about the Cabbage Beach massage on Trip Advisor. I sent an email to Colin and reserved massages for my wife and I for 1 PM. In the morning we did a tour of highlights of Nassau and Paradise Island. Instead of... More

This beach is long and white. When i was there it was barren so i had nobody bothering me. I did enjoy the view and occasional bird. The water was blue and beautiful. I walked from Atlantis to the "curve" in about 35 minutes. The beach isn't very good for beach combing. It is good for beach games.

Cabbage Beach is a public beach located next to the Atlantis and Riu resorts (I stayed at the Riu). In the morning (before 9 a.m.), the entire stretch of the beach is practically deserted. I walked the entire length of the Beach every morning during my stay. The sand is super soft and the swimming area is weed-free. This north... More

Not sure how anyone could call this beach "fantastic", other than being free! Long walk up a hill, trash and litter all around. Constant bombardment of "vendors" never leaving you alone. No bathroom facilities. No security or lifeguard. $15 for each chair; $20 for old dilapidated umbrella. No food available, and not sure why anyone would risk buying drinks from... More

It was so sketchy feeling, from the moment we got out of the cab. We were approached by several people trying to sell or rent something, the current was HORRIBLE, the massage tent was like a walmart bought pole tent and netting, the ladies working the tent were rude, it was all dirty....including the beach. Save the cab fare and... More

The beach was very pretty, but there were so many vendors and no security. It seemed like the wild west. Vendors arguing over turf. I didnt feel safe. Very pretty tho.

We enjoyed Cabbage Beach because it was not crowded and it was clean. My nephew got an excellent massage from Tia, she was wonderful!

There should be a minus rating for some reviews. Cabbage Beach qualifies, along with all the officials who work the beach. It should be closed off from the public. After several drownings a year at this beach, no one should go near the place. Cruise ships should be warning their passengers to the dangers instead of encouraging them to visit... More
