A bit of a drive depending where you are staying. Took an hour to drive from Governor's Harbour. Cool historical site. Beautiful beach a small path from the parking area.

Very cool place with an interesting history. If you skip across the street, there's another amazing beach with nobody on it- but watch for boat traffic!! Stay close to shore.

If you like history this is a must for you when on Eleuthera. If you don't like history the beach is pretty amazing here too. It is worth the drive.
