Visitor Reviews of Surfers Beach
“Went July 11th & 12th - there was action both days with swells roughly 3-5ft. Most waves didn't have much power and would become mushy but deff worth a trip out there if your itchin to paddle out. Can't wait to hit it up next time I'm back out in the Bahamas. Rocky road to get there but you can easily walk it. When you get on the beach there is this cool little hut with old school broken boards and buoy's, ropes and other cool stuff that drifted from sea. There will be some rubbish so be sure to keep this spot clean like you would do so for your own beach. TONS OF SEA GLASS & SWEET SHELLS if the surf is poor!!!! Most waves would die out this time of year, but it was really worth the wait & experience. Sets are consistent and come in between the surfers hut to roughly the cross. Don't forget your volley ball because there is a net set up too! GET OUT AND PLAYYYYY - SURFER PETE HOOKES IT UP WITH SOME SWEET BOARDS IF YOUR IN NEED”
