“Beautiful Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

The resort by the beach is closed so the beach is very empty. There is some public parking nearby and the water is beautiful and clear. Very shallow and calm.

“The softest sand, the clearest water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Just behind the Xanadu Hotel( look at the top floor of the Hotel's small towerto see where Howard Hughes used to live, with all the windows painted black, to keep out the sunlight).

This sand is unbelievably soft. The water is perfectly clear, so you can see fish swimming right up to you.

“DIRTY”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Not what I wanted to see in the Bahamas. I think because this is one of the most visited beaches the trash was unbelivale. It was hard to see the beach for the trash.

“Lots of trash”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

We were amazed at how many broken beer bottles...were there and how trashed the parking lot and beach were overall. Boo hoo as it looked like a pretty beach if you did not focus on all the trash around it!
