Located near the now defunct Xanadu Resort, it is a public beach with crystal clear waters and a calm tide. We spent a day here with plenty of cold refreshments, snacks, and sunscreen. Shade is not abundant, so beware. There is some lite litter strewn...More

This is a lovely beach and spot on Grand Bahama, but is totally deserted now. Someone needs to come down and revive this magical spot! Definitely worth a visit!

This beach has a great parking lot. Apparently Howard Hughes holed up at a hotel along this beach. It is a relatively good beach, but nothing real special other than accessibility.

We found this beach several years ago & was very excited to go back. Unfortunately it was not as remembered. Too much trash, flies & seaweed. It is not being maintained. Not a lot of people there, I'm sure condition is reason.

We had the beach all to ourselves. Be sure to go at low tide to any beach on Grand Bahama. So sad that the Xanadu Hotel, once the most luxurious in the Caribbean, is now closed. Be sure to buy something from Joy. She is...More
