“Wasn't that great....won't recommend.”
Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

The beach itself was ok, typical Caribbean beach with the exception of the large amount of people peddling goods up and down the beach. After a few hours we became so annoyed with guys yelling if we wanted water or soda, ladies selling jewelry and this one guy with wooden flutes who would play them right in your face even after you told him no that we had to leave. Then on the way back to our cruise ship our cab driver was rude and obnoxious. Not a good trip, I would not recommend this beach or Nassau based on our experience here unless you are booking a trip through a cruise ship or in an all enclusive resort.

“Beyond Paradise”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

It is a wide beach and white white sand, the water is tourquise and it's incredibly picturesque. We parked where some locals park on the far end (east end) and the bottom steps were washed away from the hurricane. We did have to jump down 3/4 feet to beach. Everyone is walking with a conch shell that they found. When i went hardly anyone was there, had beach to ourselves, but surf was a bit wicked from aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, so we couldn't properly go for a swim...more like a quick dip.

“An ideal beach”
Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

Postcard beach, white sand, blue ocean.
Free public access.

Things to note;
-a few (10-15) locals trying to promote and sell water sports etc (polite and do not overbear). Paragliding, wave runners, massage tables, drinks on beach etc
-some seaweed floating and on shore in parts. (Really not a big issue in my view, though my Gf got creeped out at times )
-waves and currents strong the day I was there (November - week after hurricane sandy)
-crowds near main entrance but plenty of room after a walk down beach to quiet parts.
-$10 taxi ride from centre of Nassau (plus $1 bridge toll). Lots of taxis waiting to take you back in evening.

“Beautiful and Easy to find”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

My husband and I stumbled across Cabbage Beach when we were in port for our cruise. We took a water ferry over to Paradise Island from Nassau and very easily walked to the beach. The water ferry was $4 per person, each way.

We walked pass the Atlantis resort, pass the Sheraton (I think it was the Sheraton at least), and turned down a side road that had a little sign that said "Beach <--". It was probably a 20 minute walk from the ferry, but we weren't trying to walk fast or hurry.

The beach was beautiful. We were offered beverages in a coconut, a massage, and beach chairs, which we declined but appreciated the offer. The sand was super soft, it wasn't too crowded, and we didn't have to pay to sit on the sand and soak up the sites.

If you don't want to walk there were quite a few taxis that stopped to ask us if we needed a lift. We felt very safe the whole time we were there.
