This is the beach you came to the Bahamas for. You'll feel like you're walking into the screen saver on your computer and have to pinch yourself to make sure you're not dreaming. The sand is so soft you want to roll in it--and just might. Even for its popularity, the beach is often sparsely inhabited and stretches for quite... More

We love the beach and atmosphere at the resort. Sometimes, the service in the restaurant and bar are lacking. Most of the staff are excellent with the exception of two ladies that seemed to have an attitude. Love the bartender, Mr. Kelly. Wish they would bring back the blue tablecloths in the dining room!

Wow!!! There are really no words to express what a wonderful place this is. My son got married last weekend and all I can say is it was magical. Wanda,Neal and their staff went above and beyond. Our guests loved just sitting on the beautiful white sandy beach and relax. Some canoed, some paddle board and some of us just... More

There is a reason that it is a top rated beach in the world. The water is very clear and an unbelievable color, any place in the area was great snorkeling and the people friendly.

I have been to 6 of the Bahama islands, and this island, beach, and resort, might possible my favorite in the world. The resort itself is all I would ever ask for from such a place, the rooms are adorable and I loved to be able to sit in our room to listen and watch the sea. The staff is... More

This is one of the nicest beaches in the world. You can swim and snorkel here. Bring your gear if you are not staying at the hotel. The water is very calm here so it is excellent for the little ones. You can also grab a bite to eat at their restaurant.
