This beach is off the beaten path and you almost feel like you're entering a forbidden area. However, it is gorgeous and has great snorkeling. This is not a large beach like some of the other areas, but is not crowded. If you have the time to find it, do it! It is beautiful. Just a bit up the road... More

I loved this beach, but please note the sign says "Nirvana Love Beach" that's how you know you are in the right place. There is free parking and there is a restaurant right on the beach. There is also an ice cream shop as well. The beach has a large stretch of sand and the view is beautiful. The water... More

We took the jitney to love beach. Dropped off at the entrance a short walk from the beach. The beach is rugged in some spots, not maintained. There is an outdoor shower and toilet facilities.The part of the beach closer to the restaurant is very rocky into the water, you have to walk about 100 meters away to find sandy... More

We hopped on a #10 bus from Cable Beach and were dropped off right in front of the Nirvana entrance to Love Beach. We took the entrance on the left under the big sign, walked down the hill and onto the beach. We headed right, passed the food shack, walked a couple of minutes and found our spot. Shade provided...

This place is definitely not worth the trouble to go here. 25-40 min drive depending on how many cruise ships in port. Drinks are over priced and we didn't even attempt the food. Beach was OK, not great. Rocky and waves. Avoid it.

Took the jitney to love beach from downtown about a 25 minute journey. Totally not worth it. The beach was not very nice the bar was expensive for drinks and the water was not clear.

Absolutely nothing romantic about this beach , really small and very rocky, there was quite a lot of broken glass around too , seen a lot better beaches than this . Not worth the trip, stick to cable beach which is on a awesome stretch of white sand and clear blue water

Nice beach that has free parking, not the case for all beaches in Nassau. Had a hut where you can buy your favorite cocktail or local beer. Snorkeling is great, with a lot of coral reef for a huge variety of fish. You have to pay $3 each to rent beach chairs and $2 for float mats, but they are... More

We took a 25 minute taxi from the cruise dock. Taxi ride was great thanks to Tyrone Wilson's V.I.P. Taxi and Tours. The beach was great. Not a huge beach but big enough that we had plenty of space. It has a bar and food. Staff very friendly. Snorkeling was great. We saw plenty of fish!

We were staying on New Providence island and had a hire car so we could get around the island as we pleased. I was interested in finding Love Beach, as I knew that "Thunderball", the 1965 James Bond film, had been partly filmed on this beach (Bond and Domino come ashore here). I'd already had a 007 fix, as "Casino... More
