Eleuthera's Beaches

Everyone’s list of the world’s top 10 beaches includes Harbour Island’s famed Pink Sands Beach. Fewer know that pink sand also spreads along the coast of Eleuthera, blessing it with several blushing beaches, most notably French Leave Beach and Winding Bay Beach.

Pink Sands Beach
Harbour Island is most renowned for its pale pink sand beaches some three plus miles long and 50 to 100 feet wide -considered one of the very best beaches in The Islands Of The Bahamas. The island's beach was featured in The Travel Channel's “World's Best Beaches” segment in March 2005. Named “Best Sand Beach,” Harbour Island was one of 10 beaches worldwide to be included in this program.

Cape Eleuthera Resort Beach
Located on a 4,500-acre private, secluded beach preserve on the tip of southwest Eleuthera, Cape Eleuthera is surrounded by uninhabited wilderness.

The Beach at Pineapple Fields

Located near Governor’s Harbour the beach at Pineapple Fields offers spectacular views and Tippy’s, a one-of-a-kind restaurant and beach bar that one can sit, have a Kalik or lemonade and take in the awesome view.

James Cistern Beach

The waves sometimes reach 10 feet due to a brisk southerly wind making this a great surfing site. Shipwrecks are just off shore and this beach is great for snorkeling when the water is calm.

The Cove Eleuthera Beach
Just up the road from Gregory Town and a stone’s throw from Surfer’s Beach, The Cove Eleuthera offers its guests a private beach amid stunning views from the cliffs of the cove.

Cotton Bay Estates & Villas
Located five miles south of Rock Sound in South Eleuthera are two private beaches of powdery pearl-white sand that stretch for over a mile at this new resort community.

Preacher’s Beach
This beach is located minutes from North Eleuthera. Wind your way down a sandy grassy path overgrown with sea grapes to find a favorite picnic spot after exploring Preachers Cave, one of North Eleuthera’s best known landmarks. The color of the water from this spot is heavenly.

French Leave Beach
One of the handfuls of pink sand beaches on Eleuthera, beautiful French Leave Beach is located just outside of Governor’s Harbour.

Lighthouse Beach
This beach is located in South Eleuthera near Cape Eleuthera and is known for its miles of unspoiled pink, soft, sandy beaches, as well as an old lighthouse located on a dramatic limestone promontory overlooking the ocean.

Surfer's Beach
This beach is located two miles from Gregory Town. The hang-ten set also knows Eleuthera is a hot wave-riding destination, with Surfer’s Beach drawing sun-bleached guys and gals to its island break.

Ten Bay Beach
This beach is located nine miles south of Governor’s Harbour in Savannah Sound. It is naturally shaded by large casuarina trees in the morning, but a sun lover’s paradise on a warm Bahamian afternoon.

Harbour Island

Pink Sands Beach
Famous Pink Sands Beach is located on the Atlantic Ocean side of Harbour Island. As for the beautiful pink hue, that comes from a simple single-celled animal called a foraminifera or foram for short. There are some 4,000 species of forams, and a few grow bright red shells.

Pick up a handful of sand on most Out Island beaches and chances are you’ll be able to find something that looks like the smallest strawberry ever grown: that’s a red foram. Beaches that are fortunate enough to have a large population of these growing offshore, and just the right currents, will wind up with bits of red shell mixed in with its white sand. Put enough red into the white and, voila, you get pink. Horseback riding on Pink Sands Beach is a popular activity for honeymooners.

Roundheads
A hidden overgrown 17th century battery built by the English to defend the island can be found at the southern end of Bay Street. Cannons, called Roundheads, can still be seen at this site.

Loyalist Cottage
For a little bit of history, visit Loyalist Cottage, a wonderful example of loyalist architecture, Commissioner’s Residence built in 1913, St. John’s Anglican Church built in 1768, as well as the Chapel Street cemetery containing ancient graves.

Lone Tree
If you’re interested in mysteries, you should visit the Lone Tree. Some say it was once an almond tree, while others say it’s a species of pine. Regardless, everyone seems to agree that it arrived in Harbour Island after Hurricane Andrew in 1992. How it arrived is up for debate though. Some say it slid down a nearby hill while others say it was blown over from a nearby island. Curiously enough, the tree arrived upright and during high tides, it even moves around a bit.


Eleuthera Attractions

Glass Window Bridge
About two miles east of Upper Bogue and north of Gregory Town at the narrowest part of Eleuthera Island, which is just 30 feet wide, is the Glass Window Bridge. Striking rock formations make up the Glass Window Bridge. The land here is high on either side and abruptly falls away to nearly sea level almost dividing the island in two. You can stand in one spot and see the gray Atlantic Ocean to the west and Exuma Sound to the east.

The Cow & The Bull
Another interesting land formation on Eleuthera Island is The Cow & The Bull about a mile south of the Glass Window Bridge. There are two large boulders, on one side, the boulder looks like a bull with two cows and on the other side, a bull with one cow. Both sets of boulders overlook the sea on both side, and when the weather is inclement and the wind passes through, the result is a roar that sounds like bulls.


Preachers Cave
Preachers Cave is a large unique cave about two miles east of Gene’s Bay. Founders who landed and were sheltered here made an altar and held vigils in the cave, giving it its namesake.


Surfer’s Beach
If riding waves is your bag, then bring your gear and head out to Surfer’s Beach, just two miles south of Gregory Town, where southwest winds blow breaks in from the Atlantic. Even if you just want to watch, the two-mile beach has some of the best sugary-soft white sand in The Bahamas.


Hatchet Bay Cave
Just south of Surfer’s Beach is Hatchet Bay Cave. The cave is a mile long and filled with stalagmites and stalactites which will take on the appearance of underground cathedrals in your torch light. Centuries-old graffiti of charcoal signatures line the walls. It’s recommended to tour with a cave guide.


James Cistern Beach
The waves at James Cistern Beach sometimes reach 10 feet due to a brisk southerly wind making this another great surfing site at Eleuthera. There is also a shipwreck just off shore, great for snorkeling when the water is calm.

Ocean Hole
People often sought out the healing powers of Ocean Hole, rumored to be a bottomless, natural limestone wonder on the south edge of Rock Sound in Eleuthera. Filled with tropical fish and turtles who greet visitors, the brackish water is said to have medicinal purposes. Partake at your own risk.

Lighthouse Beach
One of the best beaches in Eleuthera, some say even better than Pink Sands, is a hidden gem called Lighthouse Beach. Located on the Atlantic side of Eleuthera Point behind some sand dunes is a fantastic secluded blush rose sand beach. With great snorkeling just a walk off the beach, it is a great place to pack a picnic basket and spend an entire romantic afternoon or sunset stroll with your better half.
