This is a great beach for kids. When the tide is out you can walk in the water a great distance and the kids can play in very shallow water. The restaurant is a great place to eat and the staff is very welcoming. We had crab cakes and conch fritters and both were very good. But you don't have to eat, you can just sit there in the sun and have a beer and just relax. Be warned it closes(the restaurant) at 5PM so no food after that. One day we showed up at 5:10 and we were starving, but the kitchen had closed. But we found another place just up the beach.

We visited Banana Bay and enjoyed good, fast service, amazing views (it's located on a great beach), nice selection of burgers, salads, lunch food. Make sure to save room for the brownie Sunday as dessert!!

One of the nicest beaches around. I have been there dozens of times and there were few people on the Beach at any time. It is family friendly and the water is shallow for quite some distance. The food at the Resturant is excellent for a beach bar. I do agree with most reviews that service could be a little faster. Especially if coming for a quick lunch. ("Quick lunch" is kind of an oxymoron in the Bahamas. But then again... It's the Bahamas. One of the things that make these Islands so great.) It is a beautiful spot and worth a taxi ride to spend a day at a great Beach. : )

The view was outstanding. The restaurant is small but comfortable. The food and service was very good. My son had the cracked conch with peas and rice and he really enjoyed it. My husband and \i shared the banana bread which was served warm and was delicious.

This is a beautiful place to eat lunch, particularly around low tide. The beach is just beautiful. They have some lounge chairs for customers to use.

Lunch was good. However, it did take quite a while to get our food. They also forgot about a drink order. They were very busy at this time though.

We would definitely return.
