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.

Easy to find. 2 minutes south of the Glass Window bridge. Right across the highway from Daddy Joe's restaurant. Safe beginner's snorkeling around the cay. You can literally walk to the cay. We swam around the cay in a cloud of minnows. Nice coral and fish at the western tip of the cay. We saw grunts, angels, parrotfish, and starfish.... More

Great spot to spend a day! Nice shade in the trees very close to the water which laps lazily like bath water and is crystal clear. Tons of shells. Walked out to the cay and found several sand dollars in the water along the way. Great restaurant across the hwy - Daddy Joes, super convenient
