This beach we discovered was only half of a mile from the house we were staying at. The water was very clear and there were some small reefs to snorkel at. We weren't able to catch any fish when we tried fishing but it was a small and quiet place to relax and soak up some sun.

We had a nice little snorkel. Nothing big but baby rays and big schools of little, transparent fish. Nice shallow, sandy bottom bay.

Great, calm, shallow beach...and dig your toes in the sand because there are sand dollars just under the surface!

We stopped at this beach because we were staying in the Rainbow Bay area. This beach is clean, has palm umbrellas (We LOVED), and some snorkeling. We were spoiled by the umbrellas, we wished they were at all of the Eleuthera beaches! And we had the beach to ourselves that day so that was nice.

For once a very easy one to reach. And still a terrific. In the top 3 (with Lighthouse beach in particular). Calm, cool, clean, snorkeling just a walk from the beach, table and chairs, colors just incredible... you go there, and you come back, and back again !

Liked the picnic benches with woven wooden umbrellas over head. Snorkeling was pleasant around rocks. Water very swimmable. There is construction going on left side of bay - bulldozers moving material, noise not pleasant.

We were staying at a nearby vacation rental, and had came by to enjoy the beach. It was right around sunset time, and it was just a beautiful landscape to see the sun set beneath the horizon.

This beach is a little hard to find, but it's a nice little beach. We found the snorkeling here to be excellent.
