  • Nice beach. Nothing outstanding. If you are going to Clifton Heritage Park or to snorkel the underwater sculptures, then sure, make a stop at Jaws beach. Not sure I would make a special trip just.....  more »
  • Very crowded, lots of debris and lots of trash, not sure why the reviews are so good. So many better options! Pass on this!  more »

  • Secluded from any housing, tourists and boats, this little haven is breathtakingly beautiful......shallow enough for families with little children and calm enough to Paddle Board far out into the bay. A good 50 min drive across the island but worth every minute. Bliss......
  • Beautiful beach on the north west side of Nassau. Tucked away, this little gem is right near the National park. There's so much gorgeous soft sand, and turquoise water. It stays fairly shallow for a bit which makes just hanging out in the ocean amazing. There is a fair bit of litter, and no change rooms or public washrooms were available when I went. Even with these negatives, I would recommend this beach. It's a nice quiet place to spend a few hours relaxing in the sun.
