What travelers are saying
- We visited twice during our recent Bahamas trip. The first time we visited the caves and then crossed over to the beach. We loved this beach on our first trip in 2017 and it is still one of our favorites. The tide was low and we were able to walk out very far into the water. We saw 4 dolphins playing in the water. We found several sea biscuits and some very pretty shells. We even had a raccoon come and see us while walking from the road to the beach.Written May 22, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Great place to visit that has many photo opportunities. Friendly and helpful staff and a nice cafe to have a drink after your stroll.Written August 11, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We nearly didn't make it here, but I'm so glad we did!! The caves were really neat and the beach was just lovely. It was overcast, so we never saw the rock turn gold, but it was still a nice beach. Found some great shells and the snorkelers in our group spotted some huge conch and a dolphin!Written October 13, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We took the shuttle to the port. Unfortunately most of the shops were closed. The shops that were open the shop keepers were very pushy. There’s also no pricing to n anything.Written November 18, 2023
- We did plenty of reading of reviews about The Marlin at Taino beach. First let me say this island was decimated by hurricane Dorian in 2019 and then COVID.. enough said. We traded through RCI. Our room at the Marlin was a studio, very clean, bed was very comfy, small cooktop, mini fridge and surprise… a whirlpool tub. Very limited cookware, dishes and utensils , but we managed. Shuttle to Solomans grocery store was $8 a couple, liquor store if needed is also there. Prices are on the high side but everything is expensive on the island. You can take the ferry over to Port Lucaya for $8 pp. I must admit there was a lot that was closed, some never returned after Dorian and we went at peak hurricane season, so not many tourists. We did find some great souvenirs and a nice rest for an ice cold Kalik! The resort itself is covered in beautiful landscaping which the workers are always sweeping, pruning and picking up. The lazy river pool is awesome, which I enjoyed very much. The swim up grotto bar is very cool, you can swim through the waterfalls or enter from the patio area. Drinks are $$ but heavy on the alcohol and yummy! Yes the restaurant closes at 5 we just worked around it. The staff did host a welcome party complete with a full plate of tasty local food and rum punch! Then a dance off to win prizes…you guessed it rum ! The beach is awesome! A tractor comes early every morning to comb the beach. Plenty of huts and chairs to hang all day which we did ! Jet skis there for rent. The people who live and work anywhere in the Bahamas are truly the best. It’s a very quiet resort and working very hard to recover. We will return !Written September 30, 2023
- Less than seven minute ferry ride from the Pelican Bay Hotel to Taino Beach. The ferry driver has been captaining boats for quite a number of years. He is knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. If you’re staying at the Pelican Bay, you can take the free ferry over to Taino Beach. Make sure you have a room key or proof that you are staying at Pelican Bay. You can then enter the restricted access area. It’s a short walk to the beach. Mid May 2023, it was very quiet, peaceful and clean.Written May 15, 2023
- We were driving along the road and happened upon the brewery. I had read about tours so we went in without a reservation. We were accommodated immediately. The bottling was completed for the day and that would have been interesting to see but none the less the tour was informative and tasty?Written August 14, 2023
- Last port of call on our 4 day cruise. There are several local booths in this area. few other places to eat and get a drink. Just a nice little place to walk around and pass a few hours.Written March 15, 2020
- Went on a kayak and snorkeling trip with Calabash Eco Adventures and loved the snorkeling around the Cay - completely worth it going out there. Reef is looking very alive with hard corals and an abundance of tropical fish. Had one nurse shark swimming round us towards the end (they're harmless and uninterested in us), and then shortly afterwards found one resting on top of the reef (somewhat unusual as they like to sleep under overhangs/in caves). The resting nurse shark decided it didn't like snorkelers staring at it, and swam away - straight underneath me! I could have touched it if I wanted, but I left it alone - scary and exciting. It was not nesting season for the protected birds, so we didn't see the reason this is a protected area, but you probably don't go to Peterson Cay to see birds.Written November 4, 2021
- Beautiful beach, white sand, boating, swimming, hiking, well maintained, facilities and great weather.Written April 29, 2022
- What an artist, Leo does beautiful work. We purchase A picture from him years ago and loved it so much, we now own 6 including 1 original. We also nought several prints for our children. He does amazing work!Written July 7, 2023
- We stayed on Silver Point Beach for a week. The sand is soft, the waves are chill. Great spot to watch the sunrise or sunset. There is also a walking path along the road by the water. Lots of small eateries nearby too.Written January 3, 2023
- This was an interesting walk through the park reading all about the history of the island. It's not huge and doesn't take along time to walk it but make sure you got a camera when you go down deeper into the caves.Written February 18, 2019
- Daddy Brown seems to be a local hero - well-known in the Freeport area. He makes a delicious fresh conch salad, and is very charismatic!Written April 15, 2022
- We visited in 2017 and this was one of my favorite beaches. Since the hurricane, the landscape has changed, and although the beach is still beautiful, it seemed a lot more dirty than before. The area we parked in was littered with garbage, which is sad for such a gorgeous place. We did not stay for very long after seeing a man walking the beach in a long-sleeved sweatshirt and carrying an aluminum baseball bat. Although it is still a very pretty spot, there is an odd feeling about it. We will return on our next visit since the beaches are the prettiest I've ever seen.Written May 22, 2023
