Jaws Beach

New Providence, Bahamas

Jaws Beach was the filming site for the final installment in the "Jaws" movie series. As part of the Clifton Heritage Park acreage, the beach is protected above and below the water. This is a completely isolated beach, usually practically deserted, with white sand and rocky protrusions. Trees provide shade and the water is shallow, making it a good choice for families with kids.
