Cable Beach received its name because this was where the first submarine cable link to Florida was established.
The area is filled with fantastic nightlife, shopping and dining options but also offers residential areas ranging from gated luxury developments to modest family neighborhoods.
This area is popular with Bahamians and visitors due to its close proximity to downtown Nassau and the International airport - approximately 15 minutes driving time to each. The new Baha Mar Resort and Golf Course is an anchor of the Cable Beach strip.
For those who choose to make their home on the seaside of Cable Beach or atop the small hills, the views of the Atlantic ocean are magnificent and unparallel except for the fiery oranges and reds that illuminate the night sky as the sun sets.
