As you are soaking up the Bahamian sun at Cable Beach Nassau; wading through the crystal clear waters and looking back on the plethora of upscale resorts that line the coast of Cable Beach, you will love every moment in your tropical paradise.
Next time, maybe you will even remember how easy it was to simply book a day trip from Miami to the Bahamas with Bahamas Air Tours for the trip and experience of a lifetime. Today, it’s the ultimate playground for fun in the sun. There are all the usual water sports and activities and plenty of space for sunbathing.
Where is Cable Beach Nassau?
A few miles west of Nassau, the Bahamas capital, on the island of New Providence is Cable Beach Nassau, covering two and a half miles of gorgeous beachy coastline with a mix of first-class or luxury resorts and hotels, a top tier golf course, nightlife for all party-goers, and the largest casino in the country.
How to Get to Cable Beach Nassau
Any day trip to Nassau will give you the whole day to explore Cable Beach Nassau if you so choose. The great thing about Nassau is its location relative to many excellent beaches, including one of the best beaches in Nassau, Cable Beach.
History of Cable Beach Nassau
Check out any travel publication from the 1940s or 50s and you will notice that Cable Beach and Nassau were at the epicenter of Bahamas tourism. This was before there was ever a need or desire to travel anywhere else, like Paradise Island, in the Bahamas.
Tourism was new and only accessible to the rich and famous. The age of being jet-set in the 40s was much different than it is now. However, now, with the proximity to America, the Bahamas is an affordable destination for many more people.
And, with the introduction of day tours by air to the Exuma Cays, much more of the Bahamas is accessible to the everyday tourist. Instead of herding yourself into Cable Beach or any of the paradisaical beaches near Nassau, why don’t you escape the rush and find yourself on a day tour to the out islands of the Bahamas.
Where did the name ‘Cable Beach’ come from?
The name ‘Cable Beach’ is said to have come from the fact that this was the spot where the first submarine cable link was made coming from Florida. Cable Beach, at nearly four miles long, is the longest stretch of beach on the island which made it an easy choice for a submarine docking spot.
Things to do in Nassau Cable Beach
There are plenty of things to do in Nassau that will keep you busy for the length of your Bahamas itinerary. Besides relaxing on the long stretch of warm white sand beaches, you could do a number of activities to occupy your time in the Cable Beach Nassau area.
The recently redesigned eighteen hole, resort style golf course plays 6453 yards with spacious green fairways intertwined with a large network of lakes.
There’s also excellent nightlife within the vicinity of Cable Beach Nassau. Luckily, having the fortune of being so closely located to the heart of Nassau, your options are in abundance.
Whether you want to spend the night gambling your money at Crystal Palace Casino (which is very popular for those staying on Cable Beach) or take a cab to nearby Junkanoo Beach — there’s the right place for everyone.
In addition to all the activities to keep you busy at Cable Beach Nassau, you also have the excellent opportunity to take a day trip from Nassau to Swimming Pigs Bahamas at Big Major Cay. You can dive with reef sharks, take a buggy tour around a remote island, or check out all the things to do in Staniel Cay.
Bahamas Air Tours can take you to all the faraway out islands of the Exuma Cays to show you the best of the Bahamas. These islands can’t be reached by way of large ferries or cruise ships so you will experience solitude like this tropical paradise is supposed to be enjoyed.
