    Hi everyone..a friend of mine is heading on the Wonder in March. She is part of a larger group and is looking for an inexpensive (but safe - nice) beach day. She figures Atlantis would cost too much for the group. Any suggestions??

    Cable beach and Cabbage Beach. Both are the same beaches used by the major hotels. They are free, but you can rent whatever you want there. Both are a long walk/short ride from the pier area.

    I would recommend this one, the Nassau Hilton day Pass its close to the port so really easy to get to and its a beautiful place.

    Check with Bahamas Cruise Excursions as I think they offer another all inclusive option and a booze cruise that would be great for a large group.

    Good luck!

    Cabbage Beach is free. It's about ¾ mile down the road past Atlantis, and is basically the "same" beach that Atlantis-goers pay to use. However, there are no amenities there, you're on your own for food, restrooms, etc. You *could* always walk down to Atlantis if you really wanted.

    Cable Beach is public but not "free", from what I've read. I believe you have to pay one of the hotels at Cable Beach for access (I've read it's $15 per person at the Wyndham)... however, in return you have amenities available, like restaurants, restrooms, and someone even said there's a casino nearby.

    Each beach is super-easy to get to -- just get a taxi from the port terminal, right when you get off the ship. The taxis charge $4 per person, each way.

    I have been to Cabbage Beach and loved it. Haven't been to Cable Beach yet, maybe on the next cruise.
