back in the day we would ride our bicycles from nassau over the bridge to the cove.now there is the atlantis(ridiculous)hotel all over the beach with lifeguards that say "no surfing",so we go by boat now!but they legally cannot stop anyone from surfing or walking along the beach according to bahamian law.the break is located off of the cove atlantis hotel.they wont allow u to walk through the hotel,so u will have to go to the public access which is located next to riu hotel.when u reach the beach head west(left)along the beach until u reach the end.u will see a canal with a small bridge .cross it and keepgoing west for 5 minutes more and ur there!if the lifeguards try to stop u tell them that u live at the western end of the island and ur going home.or tell them that u know bahamian law that states that ur allowed to cross any shoreline up to the high water mark(storm surge level)anywhere in the bahama islands.enjoy the surf!!!!!
