No. It's about a ten minute cab or bus ride, and very easy to get to.

Just my personal opinion about Cable Beach. First of all yeah about 10-15min cab ride for sure. But I didn't enjoy it very much. The beach is full of resorts and was very busy and just not the nicest beach I've visited. I've heard more recommendations to go to Paradise Beach or Cabbage Beach. I wouldn't go back to Cable Beach again.

Is cabbage beach the one right next to atlantis hotel? I went to a beach close to atlantis years ago. Never been to cable beach but sounds like is just filled with hotels.

When I went to Cable Beach in '99, a hurricane had been through about a week earlier and the place was a wreck but open.

I believe the closest to the Atlantis is Paradise Beach, with Cabbage Beach being a bit further down the same stretch a bit farther from the cruise port.
