Years ago this beach was hopping. Now it is dirty and deserted and hard to access. You have to walk through bushes to get there.

We heard about this beach from reviews on Tripadvisor and are so glad we came! This is off the beaten path, and I'd recommend that you google map it and download the map if you are driving here so you don't get on the wrong street. The beach is scantly populated, we only saw a few other local Bahamians going... More

One of my favorite places in the entire world. a real hidden gem. There can be peddlers on the beach sometimes, but they are not that pushy.

This was our favorite beach. We went several times during our visit. The snorkeling is great in the canal. We went when it seemed like a nursery, and saw barracuda, pufferfish, damsels, yellow tang, and found many sea biscuits and conch shells of all sizes.

Parasailing, snorkeling, relaxing on the beach The only thing I didn't like was the crowd. There were lots of people when we were there. I just read that it might be shut down.

Make sure you came during a low tide, because the first time we visited this beach was like a dream! 50 m of nice warm watter just at the top of your ankles and them below the knees. We made fantastic pictures and were playing in the water with our son for hours.

Bought a time share here and was never able to get to use it and they cover themselves by putting you up ion a hotel inferior in location, atmosphere, room size,furnishings, Almost impossible to make contact and then given a merry run around. So much money spent and so much deceit.

We visited the Xanadu beach April 12, 2015 and found that the resort had been closed down. There were no activities or facilities. Pretty beach though.
