We went to this beach twice while there. You drive north of Governors harbor and watch for the Cocodimama signs on the left and see multi colored buildings. Drive down the road and just past the two story building you can pull in and park in the shade trees. There are also little tiki huts where you can either put... More

One of the many beautiful beaches in the Bahamas. If you are traveling through Eleuthera, be sure to stop.

We stopped to look as a storm started and so swam in the warm sea. No amenities - we had the place to ourselves. Just a great pity that the people that bbq there don't take their rubbish home.

The beach was spectacular. The water was clear and we had the entire beach to ourselves. It was worth the visit.

The landscape changes daily here. One day our snorkling was FANTASTIC; sea cucumbers, star fish, sand dollars, and more. The next day - just a sandy bottom! The shells here are beautiful. This was my favorite beach on the island!

The Gaulding's cay beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Eleuthera (because actually there are a lot!). And this beach is worth the trip! The view is amazing, the beach is wide with clear sand and especially very clear water! It is like a giant swimming pool. The snorkeling around the cay is very good. My husband and... More

We climbed on the actual cay and it was fun! Beautiful beach and water! Maybe 1 other person and an empty boat nearby. Stop by Daddy Joes for lunch - it across the hwy.

I think this neach would be fine everywhere else, but given the other beaches I have seen so far on Eleuthera, I would skip it or pay a quick visit.
