We really enjoyed this part of the island! The beach is absolutely beautiful. It was pretty breezy the day we were there, but still an amazing experience. My wife and I walked north from the main car park along the beach for about 1 mile but could've gone a lot further. We found over a dozen sand dollars along the... More

The trip to the beach was long and the last part of the road was indeed challenging! Huge holes and boulders. Took half hour to drive 3 miles but it was soooo worth it! The beach is incredible with huge rock formations and pounding surf. We packed a lunch and ate on the deserted beach. What fun!

We visited this beach while on the Eleuthera Island Tour and could not have enjoyed it more. Highly recommend this area and this tour!

One of a kind beach. Has plenty of coral and also sandy areas to swim. It's a perfect getaway. Don't be discouraged about the road in. It's really bumpy and hazardous if you're not in a 4X4. Also bring your umbrella and cooler, you'll want to stay awhile. My wife and I saw lots of fish so bring your snorkeling... More

It took a while to get there form Governor’s Harbor but once there, the beach was magnificent. Take a picnic and spend the day relaxing and enjoying a slice of paradise. There is definitely a lighthouse there but it may not be what you’re accustomed to. It’s certainly a lighthouse but more of a small warning beacon than the traditional... More

Got here by the dune buggy tour offered by Princess Cruise's, was a great stop. The tour guides gave us the history of the location, would love to spend a day here.

Feels like a great adventure getting there - part sandy, part rugged off-road. And then when you do get there, a stunning beach - on the Atlantic side the finest turquoise blue with a sprinkling of reefs, a fine walk at the far end up to a cliff top which gives a further stunning view looking back down on the...

While it is a rough ride (must have a SUV) to get there, it should not be missed. We were the only ones on the beach for about 2 hours before another family showed up, but there was plenty of soft sand beach to share. You can also easily snorkel the reefs right off the beach. A very enjoyable day.

Wonderful beach, great to go during weekday work hours and you will have this gorgeous beach to yourself. It is a bumpy ride out but well worth it! The snorkeling is average but the views and serenity is amazing. It isn't quite one of the truly pink and beaches which other areas of the island has, but the sand is... More

Yes, you need a 4x4 to get here. Be patient, take the road slowly and you will be rewarded with a beautiful snorkeling spot....two actually. At about 4 miles into the long bumpy dirt road you will begin to see the water to your right. Pull over and take a few picture. Drive a little further and you will see... More
