Bahamas Beaches & Activities
The Islands of the Bahamas offer clear warm water and sandy beaches. Several are relatively large but others are tiny and uninhabited. Villas Caribe offer villas on several islands with a high standard of accommodation and leisure facilities. The emerald and turquoise waters of The Bahamas archipelago naturally form breathtaking beaches. Seclusion. Activity. Countless meandering miles of sand - white, or pink. Where ocean meets land here, the possible rewards are genuinely endless.
Villas Caribe Bahamas Beach Selections
Cable Beach (New Providence Island):
The glittering shoreline of Cable Beach has easy access to shops, casinos, restaurants, watersports, and bars. It's a sandy 6.5km-long (4-mile) long strip, with a great array of facilities and activities.
Cabbage Beach (Paradise Island):
Think Vegas in the Tropics. It seems as if most of the sunbathers dozing on the sands here are recovering from the previous evening's partying, but you can find a bit more solitude on the beach's isolated northwestern extension (Paradise Beach), which is accessible only by boat or on foot. Lined with palms, sea grapes, and casuarinas, the sands are broad and stretch for at least 3km (2 miles).
Xanadu Beach (Grand Bahama Island):
Grand Bahama has 97km (60 miles) of sandy shoreline. There's more than a kilometer of white sand and (usually) gentle surf. Don't expect to have Xanadu to yourself, but if you want more quiet and privacy, try any of the beaches that stretch from Xanadu for many miles in either direction.
Tahiti Beach (Hope Town, the Abacos):
Since the beach is so isolated at the far end of Elbow Cay Island, you can be sure that only a handful of people will ever visit these cool waters and white sands. The crowds stay away because you can't drive to Tahiti Beach: To get there, you'll have to walk or ride a rented bike along sand and gravel paths from Hope Town. You can also charter a boat to get there, which isn't too hard, since the Abacos are the sailing capital of The Bahamas.
Saddle Cay (the Exumas):
Most of the Exumas are oval-shaped islands strung end to end like links in a 209km (130-mile) chain. One notable exception is Saddle Cay, with its horseshoe-shaped curve near the Exumas' northern tip. It can be reached only by boat, but once achieved offers an unspoiled setting without a trace of the modern world -- and plenty of other cays and islets where you can play Robinson Crusoe for a few hours if you like.
Stocking Island (the Exumas):
One of the finest white-sandy beaches in The Bahamas lies off Elizabeth Harbour, the main harbor of the archipelago, close to the little capital of George Town. You can reach Stocking Island easily by boat from Elizabeth Harbour, and the sands of this offshore island are rarely crowded; snorkelers and divers love to explore its gin-clear waters. In addition to its beach of powdery white sand, the island is also known for its "blue holes," coral gardens, and undersea caves.
