Fodor's Expert Review Cape Santa Maria Beach

North Long Island: Cape Santa Maria to Gray's Beach

Known as one of the Bahamas' top beaches, and located on the leeward side of the island at Cape Santa Maria Resort, the water colors here range from pale blue to aqua to shades of turquoise. The 4-mile stretch of soft white sand beckons you to stroll, build sand castles, sun worship, or wade into the calm shallow waters. In the early morning, you're likely to see a ray swimming along the shore. The resort has a beachside restaurant and lounge chairs for guests, in addition to kayak and paddleboard rentals, but there's also plenty of sand to find a secluded stretch all your own. Amenities: food and drink; water sports. Best for: solitude; snorkeling; sunset; swimming; walking.
