  • This is a beautiful but not very crowded beach. You can ask a cab driver or even a bus to get you there they will also Return to get you if you ask them to. Take beverages and towels and something to ...  more »
  • It is located at the western end of Nassau Island, past the airport. From downtown Nassau it takes at least half an hour by car. On public transport there is a bus that stops right from the beach but some tourists said there were few rides. If you have your own vehicle it may be worth coming here: it's a beautiful beach, away from the mass tourism of the cruises, here you will find very few tourists and more likely someone from the place. Crystal clear sea, too bad for the cleaning of the beach that could definitely be improved.

  • We spent a few hours at this beach and there was literally less than 5 people there! The sand is soft, the water is crystal clear, and it's a nice relaxing place to get away from all the tourists and ...  more »

  • Secluded from any housing, tourists and boats, this little haven is breathtakingly beautiful......shallow enough for families with little children and calm enough to Paddle Board far out into the bay. A good 50 min drive across the island but worth every minute. Bliss......
  • Beautiful beach on the north west side of Nassau. Tucked away, this little gem is right near the National park. There's so much gorgeous soft sand, and turquoise water. It stays fairly shallow for a bit which makes just hanging out in the ocean amazing. There is a fair bit of litter, and no change rooms or public washrooms were available when I went. Even with these negatives, I would recommend this beach. It's a nice quiet place to spend a few hours relaxing in the sun.
  • Great beach to lounge on and sunbath. If you love snorkeling there is not much to see unless you come out of the bay and head towards flipper beach. The beach obtained it's name from the fact that the jaws movie were shot on that beach.
  • Beautiful beach. Such clear water.
  • This beach is tucked away in a small corner of Nassau, i did my research before taking vacation and this was one beach I had to see. Completely deserted, no a soul around but what beautiful pics and crystal clear water. This is one of those beaches you bring a lunch with a lover and just enjoy the view for an hour. Its also where the 3rd installment of Jaws was filmed so its cool just to say you were there. Bucket list #432 ✅
