That doesn't sound good. How do they police it?

Re: Bakers Bay closed to public

It think the club has always wanted non guests to stay off their property, but I understand the beaches are public access in the Bahamas. I've often walked the beach, and had security approach me. I've just explained nicely I understand I need to stay on the beach, and they've always left me alone.

I love the big crescent beach around the corner on the NW end of the island. In addition to a great beach, it's less than a 100 yard swim out to the reef. (I of course enjoyed it even more prior to the resort....)
