What do the names Cable, Cabbage, Saddle Cay, Xanadu, Ten Bay, Pink Sands, Tahiti, Stocking Island and Cat Island have in common? They’re some of the Bahamas most famous beaches that you’ve probably read about in a novel or watched on your favorite travel channel.  Indeed, with hundreds of beaches, it’s hard to pick the top beaches in Bahamas but here is an overview of a few which are especially popular among tourists.

Cable Beach is a sandy 4 mi (6.5 km) strip located on New Province Island. It is particularly popular because it provides easy access to a number of shops, casinos and restaurants. Water sports are plentiful too with a number of activities for children and adults alike, ranging from mildly adventurous to adrenalin pumping.  

By contrast, Cabbage Beach is accessible only on foot or by boat all along its 1.9 mi (3km) long sand stretch. Located on Paradise Island, this beach is artistically lined with palms, sea grapes and casuarina trees. Thronged by sunbathers during the day, the beach is frequented by party goers once the sun sets on a late night party.

Stocking Island is famous for its pristine white sands. Lying just off Elizabeth Harbor near George Town in Exuma, its beaches remain relatively less populated than neighboring ones. It’s a top choice among scuba diving and snorkeling enthusiasts and also allows for a fantastic deep sea diving experience into its crystal clear waters. In fact, the island is famous for its blue holes, coral gardens and undersea caves that are definitely worth exploring.

The romantic Tahiti Beach is a favorite amongst honeymooning couples who particularly enjoy the secluded charm of this beach that lies about 7.5 mi (12 km) away from the main city area in the northern coast.
