Cable Beach Tips (3)

Cable Beach

Cable beach was an unnamed beach until 1907 when it became the landing point for the Trans-Atlantic cable. The cable connected The Bahamas to mainland America in Florida. Today, a myriad of upscale resorts line it. The Nassau Beach Hotel, Radisson Cable Beach Resort, Breezes, Sandals, Nassau Marriott and the Crystal Palace are located here. It's the ultimate playground for fun in the sun. It’s what we came to the Bahamas for. There are long white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. The sand is a bit course but there are no rock and garbage in it. If you are no staying at a cable beach hotel do not worry, the beach space is public. There are plenty of lounge chairs and thatched-palm umbrellas for shade. Just pull up a chair and soak up the sun. We stayed by the beach area near the Crystal Palace. You can see little fish in the clear waters, so you can snorkel pretty close to shore if you wanted to. There are companies that offer other water activities such as para-sailing and diving. After hours in the sun and water, we had a drink at the bar/pool at the Breezes. Non-Guest can purchase there drinks here. We purchased a drink from here before heading off to eat.

Cable beach is just a few minutes away from downtown Nassau. You can hop on the #10 bus for 1$ to get here.

There was one thing we missed doing. My friend Liz said that if we walked down a bit more we would probably find a beach party, which she went to a couple times when she came to Nassau last year. We missed doing this because we wanted to eat and check out other things.

Cable Beach

At Cable Beach you can rent a jetsky, take the "Booze Cruise" (basically a drunken party ship, not my cup of tea but it seemed very popular), kayak, snorkel, or just hang out and sunbathe or stroll along in the sand. At the Wyndham hotel they have an oceanside minigolf course, although not very well maintained. But it's free to guests of any of the 3 Cable Beach hotels.

Cable Beach

Walk along cable beach and admire the great old Victorian Mansions. You can also go sailing, jet sking, or kayaking in the ocean.

Cable Beach got its name from the
transatlantic telephone cables which were installed here.

Straw Market

As a Kansan I can tell you that if you have a brainless scarecrow friend, this is the the place to shop. The straw quality is excellent. Avoid witches and fire and you will have a most enjoyable time
