We have had two vacations in this area. We are from California, so returning indicates our love for this place. Tahiti Beach is a reliable, fun, and picturesque location. Just throw your anchor and hang out, in the water, under a palm or on the sand bar. There are few fish and some bottom dweller jellyfish in shallow water near... More

Go before the tide rises. This is a beautiful place to walk and explore. Make great photos. Then sit in the water and watch it rise with a cooler.

Tahiti Beach was a great beach to take in the sun and sand of the Abaco sea. The beach located just across from Cracker P's, was crowded but it was full of life and the best of tourists exploring the Bahamas without exploiting the natural beauty.

The road you travel on prior to arriving at Tahiti Beach is private, not public once you go through the gate labeled "Dorros Cove". The resident owners at the southern end of Elbow Cay (which also includes the road) have allowed non-owners (tourists as well as local Bahamians) to use this private road to get to Tahiti Beach. The road... More

So this beach got all kinds of hype in travel books and on line and I'm not sure why? Its just a sand bar in the ocean with tons of people hanging out in their boats wadding in the water to the "beach". You are way better off to go to Treasure Cay beach which is simply miles of beautiful... More

We anchored out and took kayaks to the beach. Nice place to walk and enjoy the beautiful water. We found some unusual shells for our collection.

The water was loaded with sand dollars, small conch and starfish. You have to search for the sand dollars but once you find the hot spot they get easier to locate.

An exceptional place on Elbow Cay, reached by driving all the way south (ignoring the tasteless Private signs) turning right and driving to a small parking lot. Walk further south on the sand for a few hundred feet and you are transported to Tahiti. We visited in early February and were the only people on the beach. The water is... More

It's worth renting a golf cart when you're in Hopetown - to go visit Tahiti beach at the end of the island. Or rent a bike - at Tahiti beach you can walk forever on the beach - and the water's very shallow.

We drove our golf carts to the southern end of Elbow Cay to see this beach (maybe 15 min from town). You have to drive through a neighborhood that says "private residences", but were told the road is public and it was ok to go through. There is a small parking area for golf carts, then a very short walk... More
