The beautiful sun, sea and sand of The Bahamas creates a unique set of views, and the country’s beaches are regarded as some of the most beautiful in the world. Here are some of the best scenic drives the country has to offer, on land and sea.
Pink Sands Beach, Harbour Island
Foraminifera, a microscopic marine animal with a bright pink or red shell, inhabit the sand on this beach. Their presence in the sand gives it a light-pinkish colour as well as its name. In addition to the pink sand, this beach also has healthy vegetation and clear blue water that makes for an excellent view.
Located a few miles west of the capital and spanning for over two and a half miles, Cable Beach offers a beautiful ocean view as well as first-class luxury resorts, golf courses and the largest casino in The Bahamas to date. Visitors will also get to see water sports such as jet skiing, parasailing and banana boat rides in action.
Located east of the resort area of Cable Beach, Saunders Beach makes a great second stop for those following this list in order. The beach’s tropical trees create a gorgeous view—especially at sunset—and because it is often less crowded than Cable Beach, visitors also get a clearer view of the oceanfront.
The largest fort in the country, Fort Charlotte covers 100 acres. Located on a hill overlooking Nassau Harbour, visitors can see cruise ships docking and leaving the country. Fort Charlotte also gives an impressive view of Paradise Island and Nassau itself.
Treasure Cay Beach, Abaco
Considered one of the most beautiful beaches, Treasure Cay Beach is found on the Island of Great Abaco. It is known for its flour-soft sand and clear blue water. Located next to an upscale resort community known as Treasure Cay, the beach also hosts some of the country’s most popular fishing tournaments.
Self-Drive Boat Adventures
Much of what the Bahamas has to offer includes its beaches and its waters, which can best be experienced via boat. Self-Drive Boat Adventures gives guests the opportunity to drive their own boat, giving each person a unique experience as they get to explore the island and the surrounding ocean. Self-Drive is located within walking distance from the Cruise Ship Dock on Junkanoo Beach.
