The drive may be challenging at first as the beach is neither super close to Governor's Harbour, nor to Rock Island and once you make it here the first part of the offroad is pretty bad but do not get discouraged! It's only bad at the very beginning and later on the drive gets better - there are actually some personal residences at the end of this offroad so think of them using it on daily basis :) The water here especially on the lower tide is extremely shallow and the sandbars exposed are a tone of fun to walk around even if you don't anticipate to stay here on the beach. We didn't find any sand dollars but there were plenty of sea shells :) TIP: there are no restaurants in walking distance, not even a short drive so bring water and food with you if you are planning to stay here longer

This is probably one of my 10 favorite beaches ever, at least five of them are in Eleuthera. Try to go during low tide when the sand bars are out, the water is very warm and shallow for a long ways out. Excellent beach if you have kids. Very safe. Just watch for sea urchins.

we stopped by on our travels around the island on a very windy day- it was quite protected here from the wind and shade was available under the large trees. Kids were playing Volleyball on the beach-I would go back here most definitely.

Beautiful crystal clear water. Much calmer than the Atlantic side! On windy days we went to ten bay beach and it was like another world!! Bring some chairs, there are shade trees lining the shore. A busy day is 5 parked cars! Make a day of this beach for sure!!

If you have FOMO you should probably make a visit to Ten Bay Beach, even if you are staying on the beautiful French Leave Beach, like we were. The top reasons to go: - Beautiful clear, warm water - Shallow water with sandbars - Protected cove with no waves - Pine trees lining the shore We read that you can sometimes find sand dollars, starfish, and sea urchins. We only saw sea urchins on our visit. There are a lot of shells on the shore but mostly very weathered. Ten Bay is not better than French Leave, just something different to do. I think it would be perfect with small children — though not more perfect than the natural shallow pool off the beach access road 1.6 km south east of Tippy’s. People say that you can drive right to the beach on the paved road, and we saw some people doing it. I say if you don’t have a serious 4WD vehicle then it’s not worth it to avoid the 8 minute walk from the Queen’s Highway. Just park in the grassy area along the highway and walk the 650 m to the beach. The main challenges of driving are 1) rocks, 2) ruts, and 3) mud. You can see these hazards in the attached pictures. While much of the drive is just packed dirt, there are random large rocks in the tracks and ruts that make choosing your path challenging. There is also a lot of mud that feels like clay and was inexplicably still wet after 5 days of dry weather.
