Fodor's Expert Review The Caves

Cable Beach Ruins

These large limestone caverns that the waves sculpted over the eons are said to have sheltered the early Arawak Indians. An oddity perched right beside the road, they're worth a glance—although in truth, there's not much to see, as the dark interior doesn't lend itself to exploration. Across the street is a concrete viewing platform overlooking the ocean. Just a short drive west beyond the caves, on an island between traffic lanes, is Conference Corner, where U.S. president John F. Kennedy, Canadian prime minister John Diefenbaker, and British prime minister Harold Macmillan planted trees on the occasion of their 1962 summit in Nassau.
