The Basics

If you want to explore Cable Beach but aren’t staying in one of the resorts, seek out the public stretches of sand. The gentle turquoise waters, typical of the Caribbean, are perfect for snorkeling right off the beach and other water sports, and you can book island tours and boat tours from outfitter stands dotted along the coast.

Cable Beach is a stop on many Nassau island tours and cruise ship shore excursions that cover the Nassau highlights, such as Junkanoo Beach, Ardastra Gardens, the Queen’s Staircase. To explore the Bahamas farther afield, you can embark on multi-island tours that might stop on Exuma, Blue Lagoon Island, or Rose Island.

Snorkeling on Cable Beach

Cable Beach is one of New Providence Island’s best snorkeling spots for beginners and children. Visitors staying at one of the all-inclusive resorts have access to snorkeling gear; others can rent it at one of the beach shacks. The calm waters are home to schools of fish who are used to the presence of humans, as well as stingrays and starfish.
