Do not be intimidated by how to get to this beach - it is worth it! The view is stunning and as with the beaches we found in Governor's Harbor, there are not many people on it. It is excellent for snorkeling, swimming or sunbathing.

Beautiful, laid back beach area. Not very crowded at all. A few palapas available, nice white sand and blue blue water.

When looking for a place to vacation, we were looking for a place to leave the hustle and bustle behind. We picked Eleuthera and are so happy we did. Most days, we were the only people on the beach. Beautiful pink sand and turquoise water...More

This beach is absolutely beautiful but more and more people are discovering its beauty. If you visit, be kind and remember socially appropriate spatial relations...No need to be within 100 yards of anyone else!😜

Beautiful pink sand. Not too many people. Bright blue water. We walked this beach almost everyday on our vacation as we were staying on the next beach over. The pink sand is like no other beach I've ever seen!

The weather wasn’t great for our stay but we saw enough to know this beach is as good or better than any other beach out there. The water is so many shades of blue. It’s basically vacant. We never counted more than 18 people including...More

Our first visit to the island. We used the Beach Book to find our way here. It is a must. This Atlantic side Beach runs for along the way, from the old Club med beach down to French Leave. Ending probably somewhere near Poponi. Anyways...More

Lovely long beach! We happened to stop here and were very pleased to learn that the nearby Marriott resort will bring you food and drink and you can rent an umbrella and chairs. Snorkeling was fairly good although lots of old beach chairs underwater. Saw...More
