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.

If you're asking someone how to get here, tell them you're going to Golden Key, not Gaulding cay lol it's pristine, shallow, crystal clear. you can easily swim out to that litle island, just wear swim shoes cause it's really sharp rock but fun to jump off of. one of my favorite places in Eleu.

Our rental house was just down the beach from Gaulding Cay. We walked over a couple times and enjoyed finding great shells and snorkeling around the cay. A nice, calm place to visit!

We loved this beach. We went twice and each time there was only a couple of other people on the beach. We snorkelled around the Cay, swam and relaxed and enjoyed the view.
