With a name like Cabbage Beach you may imagine that this sandy shore might not be that impressive, you would be wrong. This is one of the biggest beaches on Paradise Island, just off the shore of Nassau, and boasts some of the whitest sand you will ever find. Open to the general public as well as the guests of the hotels that dot the edges of this vast stretch, it is one of the busiest beaches in the area. This does not mean that it is constantly packed as it has plenty of room but for a little extra room check out the eastern end of the beach which lacks hotels.
The beautiful blue Caribbean waters are great for enjoying water sports although swimmers should be aware that there are strong currents just off shore. This means that if you are not a strong swimmer you will probably want to keep to the shallows. If you plan to spend the day at the beach be also aware that there are no public restrooms on this beach the only bathrooms are in the hotels and are only available to guests. There is one other drawback for those looking to enjoy this jewel of a beach, the street vendors. These sellers can be a little too persistent in their pitch and some are on the shady side so buyer beware. Otherwise Cabbage Beach with its unassuming name is a very popular beach for a lot of great reasons.
