Located at the opposite end of New Providence Island from the usual tourist traps, Cable Beach offers a better "Bahamian experience". Slower pace, friendlier people, fewer tourists are just a few of the benefits of vacationing in this part of paradise. Worth riding the #10 bus to get downtown (if you really want to).

To start, I must say this beach is very beautiful, the water is exceptionally clear and the sand is perfect for sandcastles. Nice that it is a free beach and the cab ride was reasonable from the port. However, the local "vendors" really take away from the experience. It is nice to have many amenities available, but they are constantly... More

Our hotel was on Cable Beach so I took an early morning walk on the beach every day. I found the sand clean and easy to walk on ( although not good for shell hunting). The water was calm and a beautiful clear shade of blue.

We have been to Nassau many many times on short cruises from FL. Our family always does the same thing, we get off the boat and do an excursion and then eat somewhere, maybe walk through the straw market. This time we wanted something different. After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor we decided to get off the boat and take... More

We were on a cruise ship and wanted to get away from the crowd. People recommended Cable Beach which we took the bus to get too. When we arrived we felt uncomfortable, the beach was dirty, locals hanging around trying to make money and the fumes of jet skis to rent was horrible. We decided to walk further down and... More

Pretty. Clean. Warm. A little over crowded, but not horrible. We stayed near cable beach near Melia and the sand was clean and not rockly at all.

Great place to visit highly recommended. You will never want to leave. It is very peaceful. The water and sand are exactly like any picture you see.

We went to the public beach at Cable Beach. It was FULL of trash! There was broken glass, beer bottles, chicken bones, plastic cups, etc. it was a very small piece of beach front land between the resorts, where the locals went.

A trendy little place called the Dak Shack! The best service and drinks on the island. If you are staying downtown you can jump on the local Jitnay number 10 bus to get there. Don't forget to leave a picture to let everyone know you were there.
