Cable Beach

Cable Beach, Nassau, The Bahamas

If all you really want to do on your Bahamian visit is relax on the beach, this is the spot for you. A short ride from downtown Nassau (every taxi driver knows where it is), it has everything necessary for a fun morning or afternoon in the sun: a stretch of powdery white sand, calm waters that are perfect for swimming and surrounding resorts where you can stop in to get a bite, order drinks and rent water-sports equipment.

Camel rides, pearls, and dinosaurs

Cable Beach almost seems like a dream. Thirteen miles of sugar white sands and turquoise waters set against rusted red cliffs. Beachgoers can ride camels, dive or shop for pearls, and even see ancient dinosaur footprints. Photo by Peter Boer/Flickr
