Didn't see the beach itself, this review is about the snorkeling off the shores of the beach. We came by boat to the underwater sculptures. Very few fish here, mostly sandy bottom; the sculptures are not attracting fish. If you're right there anyway, put your face in the water and look. Otherwise, no need to put this swim on your itinerary.

The beach was nice but there are a lot a better beach’s to visit. There is nothing special, I expected something to do with Jaws since it was filmed there but disappointed. Di not make a special trip to see it. Go to cable beach or other nicer beach’s

Water is gorgeous but it’s not significantly better than other available beaches. Water was pretty but too shallow to swim, when we were there it was somewhat crowded for a very small beach. Wasn’t really worth the trip. Primary value seems to be location in Clifton park, with it’s historical/cultural attractions. Good to combine but not worth a trip in of itself.

We stopped her while out exploring the island. There were only one or two other cars the whole time we were there. We walked along the shore for quite a ways and it was quiet and peaceful. There was a shipwrecked boat that was fun to see and beautiful views of the ocean. We had a nice time here and would go back again. It is free and there was plenty if places to park. It doesn't look like much from the road, but a short walk brought us to paradise. Worth a stop.

We went her and had a beautiful time one evening watching the sunset. Loved absolutely every minute of it. It's a small beach, and was only sparsely populated when we went there one evening.
There are many hiking path trail heads that start here.

If you are visiting Nassau or Paradise Island this is a must see!! Crystal clear water, shallow, no waves. Perfect beach, looks just like the pictures. Not crowded, at all. Only downside is no facilities or restrooms.

Call Lionel to take you here, or anywhere in Nassau/Paradise Island. The BEST cab driver around, reliable and trustworthy!!!
Traveled from the US and felt completely safe with him.

Tell him Arber, Mustache and Brian sent you!! Lionel: 242-814-8914
Really honest and great!!

Definitely the beach you want to go to if trying to get away from crowds. Especially at sunset when the scenery is unbelievable. This beach has a long stretch of coastline if you want to jogging as-well and with the right winds it can be compared to heaven on earth!!!

If we ever return to New Providence I will definitely make sure to spend some more time here and also come better prepared. We only spent a day at another beach ,Love Beach (see separate review), which was a completely different experience, though both great in their own ways.

Here there are restrooms, no restaurants but you gain plenty of shade under the trees so as long as you come with some food and water you will enjoy this place a lot - otherwise it felt like driving here was through mostly residential part of the island so not sure how close the nearby convenience/grocery store is to get some supplies - do your homework and come prepared as this one is a beauty!

Water here was super pretty and super peaceful, much different colors and experience than we had at the Love Beach - it's definitely out of the way but worth it!

This beach is absolutely beautiful. We spent the entire day here with very few other people. We floated in the clear blue water for hours. We strolled down to an overturned boat a little way down the beach and saw so much amazing sea life at the water’s edge. And we watched the most amazing sun set before leaving. A highlight of our trip!!

Nice beach. Nothing outstanding. If you are going to Clifton Heritage Park or to snorkel the underwater sculptures, then sure, make a stop at Jaws beach. Not sure I would make a special trip just for Jaws Beach, although it is nice and we enjoyed our time there. Water is clear, beach is nice.
