Default Nassau/Cable Beach

Does anyone know if any of the hotels on the beach allow cruise ship passengers for a fee? Just trying to have a great beach day while on Nassau without being haggled by locals every minute. Thanks Randy

Contact Breezes on Cable Beach. This all inclusive resort still probably sells a day pass , good for facilities, food and booze.

You can take a ships tour to Blue Lagoon Island, not sure if locals are there or not but it's supposed to be beautiful. I also hear you can walk through the British Colonial Hilton and out the back door to the beach but locals are there.

I just got back from Nassau and though I did not go to the zoo I did not get bugged by locals like I did over 10 years ago when I went. The island has really changed, built up and is very american now. I ate lunch at the local area called the fish fry/Arawak Cay good food, reasonable prices not touristy and lovely like Key West. Also went to the Nassau zoo,called Ardastra gardens I highly recommend this to watch the flamingos march. We even took a city bus and were treated wonderful by the locals. Cost of zoo, $12, bus $1 each way, lunch conch salad $8. With time to shop in town before going back to the ship.

I have been to Blue Lagoon and it is nice for lounging by the Lagoon area which is very shallow. There are hammocks around the island for relaxing in which is also nice. It is very pretty and the only people there are from different cruise ships. The snorkeling we did not do as it was very rocky on that side and looked difficult to get in the water to snorkel. There are no locals there except for at the little gft shop they have and the people cooking and serving the food, but they do not bug you at all. The food was not great and was overpriced in my opinion. I think it was like $10 =$12 pp for lunch and it was basically hamb/hot dogs, rice and a few other side dishes.

Breezes in Nassau on Cable Beach sells day passes ($60/person) at the front desk which allows access to their entire resort, beach, pool, etc.
