Beaches: On the north shore past Gambier Village, Love Beach is the site of the famous Compass Point resort owned by the man who made Bob Marley a household word - recording mogul Chris Blackwell. It also happens to be a prime destination for snorkeling, boasting a 40-acre coral reef a mile offsore. Most folks fail to make the nine-mile trip from downtown Nassau to this part of the island, so expect isolation. Don't expect a sign or parking lot to mark your arrival. Just look for a place to pull over west of Compass Point and head to the sea.
