Read about how we rank Things to Do.

Cabbage Beach on Paradise Island is arguably the most popular shore of the Bahamas. It's flanked by hotels, eateries and water activities galore. Seems like there'd be accessible bathrooms, right? Wrong. If you have the urge, you'll have to beg for pity at one of the hotels. Looking for a comfortable perch? Plan on shelling out approximately $10 USD to rent a beach chair. How about some shade? That'll run you around $20. Luckily, swimming is free. So is sitting on the ground, sans umbrella or chair.

In a nutshell, Cabbage Beach is the epitome of a tourist trap — the travelers that are most pleased with the spot's stunning clear water, soft sand and amenities are the ones most willing to pay for the ambiance to go with it. If you're looking to be in the thick of things, Cabbage Beach delivers. But if you're looking for virtually the same experience with less hassle and potentially less cost, travelers agree you should pick a different Bahamian shore.
