This beach is perfect at low tide and for years we brought our children and now we bring our grandchildren. It is just sand, water and nothing else. With more visitors to the Abacos, sometimes there are10-12 boats. But oh, to be in that vodka clear water looking at the beautiful sand.......it is heaven on earth.

A lovely beach. One of my favorite spots on the island. You can boat up to it or get there by golf cart, bike or foot. Soft sand and hardly any waves. Small shells, sea biscuits, sea stars and sea urchin can be seen. We saw them all. After I stepped on a prickly sea urchin, I wore water shoes.... More

Good place to stop for the afternoon. The only downside is that it gets a bit crowded. It is a great place if you have small children, as there is little to no surf, and low tide gives you many options.

This beach is beautiful and diverse. When we pulled in with our dingy we saw a stingray in the water pretty close to the beach. We followed it for a while and video recorded it. Love the marine life. We beached our boat and took a walk. This is not your normal suntanning beach, though lots of people go here... More

this is a great place to take kids of all ages to explore ocean life….. definitely go at low tide though. We stayed close to Hopetown and it was a short golf cart ride to the south end of the island.

We anchored next to Tahiti Beach and didn't want to leave. The tide means the beach is forever changing. There are plenty of fish to see including the random stingray gliding through. We packed a cooler full of goodies and beached the dingy. Others anchored their boats on the sandbar further out. It was off-peak so we had the beach... More

We hung out at Tahiti several afternoons. Beautiful beach, beautiful water and it was a one minute boat ride from Lubber's Landing where we stayed. We met some nice people there and will go back every time.

Don't want to travel to the south pacific? Just head over to the Bahamas...elbow cay and discover Tahiti Beach. Wonderful spot to just chill out and explore underwater and on the beach.

Anchor your boat nearby & beach your dinghy on shore. Venture ashore at low tide for the finest small sandy beaches that just seem to swirl around gin colored pools of water. Perfect for sitting in serene meditation, a stroll with your pups, beach combing or Sand dollars or sharing a cold one with friends.
