Sugar Beach

Beach, Caves, Cayes, and Islands
One of the Cliffs at Sugar Beach – Bahamas Ministry of Tourism

This beach is considered one of the prettiest places in The Bahamas, and is said to resemble the great beaches of the Mediterranean. There are numerous sandy coves among the cliffs, in addition to caves, an abundance of thatchberry trees, and ruins of the Sugar Beach Resort & Golf Club, the island's original resort. The shelling is excellent here, and you'll also find other sea treasures when strolling along the beach north of the ruins. For the more adventurous, the creeks are filled with many species of wild life.

Ask locals how to find the trail through the woods at the northern end of the beach, then carefully climb up the rocks to enjoy the spectacular view.

Accessibility Notes

The area is rocky and uneven in most places. It is not suitable for persons with mobility impairments and those in wheelchairs.

Eco-Friendly Notes

The caves here are worth exploring for their unusual rock formations and there is a grove of thatchberry trees, for which the islands are named.
