The road getting in is really terrible so do not attempt it unless you have a sturdy truck. But once you get there it is really breath taking. We did some snorkeling and saw some nice coral, fish, and 2 sting rays.

The water is absolutely beautiful as are the beaches! The "1 mile dirt road" is actually 2 1/2 miles of lots of rocks and ditches so beware when you venture there. We had a Chevy Lumina and my husband skillfully drove us there and back w/o incident. Pack a cooler with drinks and lunch as you'll want to stay a... More

The road to get to this beach is rough and had to take it very slowly but wow was it worth the 25 minutes of white knuckled driving! Just a gorgeous, gorgeous beach. Very clear snorkeling conditions if not a big variety of fish. Don't miss it.

It takes courage and a good car to get there, but worth every bump on the "road"! I almost gave up on the middle of the way, the road was getting worse by minute, but when I arrived I saw the most beautiful place in the whole island! Just do not forget to take lots of water and some food... More

Coming from Miami, I know a thing or two about beaches. This is BY FAR the best beach I have ever laid eyes on! Even of all the Eleuthera beaches, this one is my favorite (although, French Leave Beach comes in at 2nd). It's a bit of a treck to get there, but it's a fun experience. Get yourself an... More

Was staying in Spanish Wells, so we took a day trip to the "Main" Island of Eleuthera. Rented a car, which ended up being an 4 wheel drive vehicle. We road down the Queens high way making stops along the way. The Island is beautiful. On the southern tip of the Island is Light House Beach. The Queens Highway does... More

This is very remote beach at the far south end of the island was beautiful. The lighthouse however was disappointing and actually kind of creepy. Appears to have had someone homeless living underneath it. Also be careful because there is an uncovered well or cistern nearby that someone could fall into. The road was rough and in some places very... More

We traveled to Lighthouse Beach last year. We were given directions that said after you say 3 times "Is this the right road?" you would find it. Have a good vehicle because the road was washed out in several places with many high and low spots. The beach was beautiful when we finally got there but was crowded. we have... More

The road to the beach is really treacherous and shouldn't be taken unless you have an SUV or truck. The reward, is beauty.

If you are looking forma deserted beach, wonderful colors and pure quiet romantic, that's the place. Baccardi movie at it's best. Quite burdensome to get there but for sure worth every bump hole.
