SANDYPORT BEACH

This is a secluded beach located west of Cable Beach next to the Sandyport Beaches Resort. The beach itself is cut in two by the canal that leads into the Sandyport residential community. Public access is easier on the eastern side, just opposite the entrance to the resort. Next to the canal is a nice Gazebo where you can watch boats go by and take some memorable pictures.

JAWS BEACH

This secluded beach is tucked away at the western end of the Lyford Cay gated community. It is part of the Clifton heritage land and sea park. The park combines nature trails, wetlands, and historical ruins. Casuarina trees along the beach provide ample shade and the water is shallow, making it a good choice for families and for snorkeling the nearby reef. Within the park there are other beaches such as Flipper Beach and Johnston Beach. Private transportation is the only way to get this beach.

CORAL HARBOUR BEACH

On the southern shore of the island at the end of the Coral Harbour community is a long and narrow beach with crystal clear water. The best access is through a small hotel named Coral Harbour Beach Villas & Sand Bar, where you can have a local beer at the bar or on a lounge chair by the beach. This quiet spot is perfect to relax and you will feel as if you were on an Out Island of The Bahamas. The beach is ideally suited for families with young children because of its shallow and calm waters.

ADELAIDE BEACH

This off the beaten track beach is located on the south west side of New Providence Island, just a few ways down from the Coral Harbour Beach. It seems that time has stopped in this small community set up by free slaves in 1831. There is an Out Island feel to it, with the natural vegetation along the beach that stretches as far as you can see. It is generally quiet except on weekends when it’s popular with local residents.
