What to do and see in Cable Beach

Flanked by swaying palm trees, the powder-white sands shelve gently into clear turquoise waters that are perfect for a wide range of water sports, including snorkelling, scuba diving, parasailing, waterskiing, banana-boat riding and windsurfing.

The beach is lined with a good selection of luxury resorts, nightclubs, snack bars, restaurants, casinos and a golf course. Facilities provided by the beachfront resorts include umbrellas, sun loungers and restrooms, with a small charge for non-guests.

Cable Beach (including nearby Paradise Island) offers the best entertainment options, the best shopping, some of the best beaches and the most historic attractions in the Bahamas – perfect for a honeymoon holiday.

Away from the major beachfront resorts there are also less crowded public areas where you can find some solitude.

To the west of Cable Beach lies a pink house on the Rock Point promontory, where much of the 1965 James Bond film Thunderball was filmed.

Away from the beach, in neighbouring Nassau, stroll on foot or ride a horse-drawn surrey along picturesque tree-lined streets with well-preserved stately colonial mansions, cathedrals and 18th century castles.

Where to stay

Cable Beach offers an excellent range of accommodation options ranging from boutique hotels and all-inclusive resorts to budget properties – perfect for honeymoon couples.
