“Beautiful secluded beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Gaulding's Cay is a short drive from The Cove Eleuthera. You drive down a narrow sandy road. You can easily drive there in a normal car and don't need a SUV or anything like that.

We went in late May, and it was drizzling, so we didn't stay long. However, on a nice day, you could stay the full day and swim out to the small island. There are one or two houses close by, but we saw no one else around.

The view was beautiful and I would definitely recommend checking this beach out!

“Great for beginners”

This is a great beginner spot for snorkeling. We found some bonefish here as well so don't forget your fly rod.

“Stunning. Simply Stunning.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

My fav Eleuthera beach so far and I have explored quite a few including Lighthouse, French Leave, Ten Bay.

The water is crystal clear blue green as far as the eye can see. Completely alone but totally complete.
