Columbus Harbour is named after Christopher Columbus, who passed through this area on his inaugural journey to the “New World”. On this journey, he found an incredible beach. So, for about 1.5 kilometres, all you see is shallow turquoise waters and soft white sand. On top of that, the beach is completely private and secluded. Furthermore, the beach is off the beaten path and perfect for keeping your mental well-being in check. So enjoy the stillness and a still mind.

This is a beach you wouldn’t know existed unless you coincidentally stumbled upon it, or someone told you about it. Well, luckily I’m here to tell you about it so that you don’t miss out on this beautiful secret beach. Equally important, the path towards the beach is rather overgrown so remember to wear closed-toe shoes. However, when you reach the secluded beach, you see why it’s worth the effort. The calm blue waters and private location provide you with a unique relaxing experience.

4. Cape Santa Maria Beach – Long Island

The best beach on Long Island is without a doubt Cape Santa Marie. There isn’t a more beautiful place to unwind and elegantly do nothing than Cape Santa Maria. Also, fishing, paddling, snorkelling, and waterfront dining are the order of the day. The water is calm enough for you to float around, swim, or just admire. Remember to enjoy 180-degree views of the beach.

5. Cabbage Beach – Paradise Island

Cabbage Beach is the most visited beach on Paradise Island. And that says a lot. Additionally, Cabbage Beach is one of the longest beaches on the island and around the Bahamas. So, there’s a lot for you to take in and adore. There’s also enough space for you to find the ideal chilling spot. If you would rather swim, just remember to look out for the flags to know when it’s safe to do so. Moreover, the water offers great conditions for jet skiing. Finally, the light blue water and soft pink sand are so captivating, you’d never want to leave!

6. Pink Sand Beach – Harbour Island

Pink Sands in the Bahamas is a gem of a beach on Harbour Island. To reach the beach, walk down a short dirt path through the trees. As the name suggests, the sand on this beach is a soft pink colour. And to compliment the beautiful pink sand, the water is a vibrant turquoise colour. You might think you’re dreaming but actually, you’re just at Pink Sand Beach. When you’re hungry, find little shops selling snacks and drinks to make your visit even better.

7. Green Turtle Beach – Turtle Cay Island

Green Turtle Cay or Cove is named after the many green turtles that feed on the grass at this beach. Besides the beautiful clear waters that you can lay next to, snorkel out to have a closer look at the turtles. Moreover, Turtle Cay is right next to Dean’s Hole so it’s like a two-in-one special.

8. Cable Beach – Nassau

Cable Beach is one of the best beaches in Nassau. However, it’s also one of the busiest. There are a lot of boats and cruise ships dropping passengers off and picking new passengers up from Cable Beach. After all, the beach is near the city and the cruise port. Nevertheless, the water is clean and calm, and the sand is white and fine. It’s a must-visit, as simple as that.

9. Shelling Beach –  Island of Andros

This beach is very secluded and wonderful for snorkelling. Need I say more? I’m just kidding, I’m going to say more because my editor said so. Anyway, it’s about a 15-minute walk away as no road leads to the beach. Shelling Beach is flooded with beautiful seashells and shallow pools of water to lay in for a cool down. It’s also a great option if you’re up for an adventure.

10. Dannenberg Beach – Berry Island

The beach is easily accessible and just a great place to spend a day! It’s really an all-rounder, you can’t go wrong.
