Despite its beautiful surroundings and extensive range of watersports, the cable beach is a popular destination for tourists. This stretch of coastline is lined with luxurious resorts and bars. It was an unnamed beach until 1907, when it became the landing point of the Trans-Atlantic cable that connected The Bahamas to mainland America, specifically Jupiter, Florida. Known as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Cable Beach is the ultimate playground for sun worshippers and water sports enthusiasts alike.
The area offers an abundance of dining and cable beach bahamas entertainment options. Many of the resorts offer a full range of dining and entertainment options, from traditional Bahamian dishes to casino entertainment. For a unique dining experience, visit the Indigo restaurant on Cable Beach, an Italian restaurant. Alternatively, take the #10 bus to Sandy Port for traditional Bahamian food. Another restaurant that offers authentic Bahamian cuisine is The Poop Deck, located across the road from Sandy Port. Guests love the fun atmosphere and fresh seafood.
The weather in Cable Beach varies throughout the year, but in general, temperatures are pleasant throughout the year. In September, daytime temperatures average in the high 80s F, while nighttime lows are in the mid 70s. July is the wettest month, with rainfall expected more than half of the time. However, the weather is a great time to visit Cable Beach if you want to enjoy the island’s best weather.
For those who do not wish to spend all day in the water, the Saunders Beach offers amenities aimed at families with young children. This beach features restrooms, showers, swings, parking, good lighting, and separate swimming areas for babies and toddlers. Saunders Beach is about 15 minutes from the cruise port and is ideal for families with small children. However, it is not a good place to swim unless you are able to swim in shallow water.
One of the best things about Cable Beach is the pristine turquoise waters that surround the beach. There are also coral reefs at depths between five and 35 feet, which are home to a variety of tropical fish. Visitors can even swim over the wreck of a steel-hulled ship, the Mahoney. You’ll never get bored at Cable Beach. You’ll also be able to enjoy a variety of watersports during your stay in the Bahamas.
Most revelers on Coco Island are guests of one of the beachfront resorts. A number of vendors set up their stands along the beach to provide customers with beach umbrellas and souvenirs. The beach is also home to the world-class DJs who regularly perform for hotel guests. In addition to drinking, tourists can also buy seashell jewelry and t-shirts from vendors. The Bahamas Ministry Of Tourism has plenty of information about cable beach and other local attractions.
