About
Cable Beach is a Caribbean haven; expect sensational ocean views, glimmering waters, and postcard-worthy landscapes. You can spend hours here stretched out sunbathing, or try water activities like jet-skiing, parasailing, and banana boat rides. After sundown, pop by the beachside bars to sample some of Nassau’s local craft beer. Stretching for miles, the beach is lined with some of the best resorts, restaurants and bars in town, making it a favorite with both travelers and locals. Cable Beach is amazing throughout the year but the dry winter season is especially popular for the cooler weather and easterly winds. – Tripadvisor

    Can be chill if you are in the right spot
    Cable beach is pretty and if you set up East of the Breezes hotel you will feel a more chill vibe. When you arrive you will be bombarded with Umbrella and chair vendors as well as jet ski rentals and such. But after that they left us completely alone. We did get an umbrella because you need one in the summer for sure but outside of that the pressure was low and we just chilled. Also the guy at the food stand making wings and fries is a good value and the fries were excellent. A few of us snorkeled around and saw almost nothing. I think with all the activity of boats and such that the fish are elsewhere. But we did walk down in front of the Baha Mar and the snorkeling is better over there. People kept saying there were turtles out there but we didn't see them and we covered the whole area. All in all we really enjoyed ourselves. A word of warning as well. You will find guys that want to charge you to take you out to an island to see dolphins, turtles and fish. We got the skinny from a local and we chose not to go because the dolphins are literally in a cage and same with the turtles and you do get to snorkel but only with the fish. So if you disagree with captivity like we do you may want to bypass this activity as well.

    Don’t miss this ideal beach day
    We are so glad we didn’t believe the negative reviews of this beach. We took a cab from the port for about $10/pp and got there in about 20 min. We were approached by some locals to get chairs and umbrellas. We rented two chairs and an umbrella for $40 for the entire day. My husband found a drink stand where he got three drinks in a cantelope for $30. The beach is clean and beautiful. The water is SO warm and clear. We saw some fish and overall had a very relaxing beach day. We loved the whole island and highly recommend getting off the ship to explore!

    Cruise stop, go and find a decent beach!
    Excellent few hours at the Cable Beach!l We picked up a taxi from the main high street (Jewellery area) Our Campbell our taxi driver was friendly and informative. He took 5 of us to Cable Beach from $35. On entering the beach we were approached for lounger hire. We got 2 beds and 1 umbrella for $30 The beach and sea were clean. This part of the beach was not crowded, we were near Breezes Hotel. Our taxi driver picked us up at 3 o’clock to get back to the cruise ship. We really enjoyed our day in Nassua

    Beautiful beach not far from downtown Nassau
    We took No. 10 bus from the bus stop across the street from Margaritaville. It cost us $1.25 each and dropped us off at the bus stop by the Sandals Hotel. From there, it was a 1-minute walk down to the beach. The beach is small but is really, really beautiful. White and clean sand. We didn’t see any fish snorkelling, but some people said they saw 3 stingrays earlier in the day. There’s no washroom facilities. Beach chairs, umbrellas, life jackets are available for rent.

Want to make your trip really memorable? Walk along Cable Beach to meet Bahamians like Anthony Poitier (yes, he’s related) who runs a pop-up Conch Shell sand-stand on the beach just past Breezes (check-out the picture), and his grandson who runs authentic boat tours off the beach further down away from the resorts. People like these make the destination special. Here’s to you Anthony!

Took a sketchy cab ride there. The beach was nice but honestly didnt feel comfortable. There was a little makeshift drink stand that was kind of expensive and dirty looking. The beach is nice but most are on tropical islands. I wont be back and cant reccomend it.

My husband and I went to Cable Beach for our honeymoon/vacation and it was the BEST experience in our lives. The condo we stayed at was beautiful right on the beach. We met awesome people one in particular who showed us around the island and set up various activities for us to do while there was Theo Cleare. Theo made this experience even better because we have never been to the Bahamas so when we met him he made us feel very comfortable and welcomed and this meant alot to my husband and I. Being treated so kind is super important especially when we travel because it says alot about the person and place. I strongly recommend going to Nassau Bahamas. We will be back very soon.
