This place was easy to find with a paved road and signs along the way. It's fascinating to imagine being shipwrecked and the finding this cave to live in. We enjoyed crawling around the open areas of the cave. Its really easy to find and very family friendly since it's fairly open. Be sure to check out Tay Bay Beach nearby.

Get a little bit of history while you're here. This is the first spot settled by European's in the 1600's (by accident) in the Bahama's after a crash on Devil's Back Bone (coral reef). They left the old world in search of religious freedom... The name Eleutheria is from the greek word meaning "freedom."

Don't miss the beach when you check this place out! It's right down the street.

The day my husband and I were here, we didn't see anyone else all day, we felt like castaways, and ran around naked like laughing teenagers. We were in our fifties then, so was quite out of the ordinary for us, just felt so wonderful to have a magnificent beach with not a single footprint on it, until we arrived. Great memories!

As you walk up to the cave entrance, look to your left or right at the thick jungle and imagine yourself, 400 years ago, looking for shelter after ship wrecking. Then you see the enormous cave. Be sure to walk all the way in and look up!!
After exploring the cave, go north 20 yards to one of the most spectacular beaches on Eleuthera, Tay Bay. If you are lucky enough to catch it on a calm day you would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful beach anywhere. Be sure to take a picnic and plan on staying awhile. Watch for dolphins.....we were blessed with having three play with us for an hour. It just doesn't get any better!

This beach is fabulous for snorkelling!! The cave is interesting and we read about it before our visit so we went to see it. Once again, in the Bahamas, garbage was around. Do you think tourists just throw stuff out there? I sure hope they would have more repect for such a beautiful place! the cave has lots of nooks and crannies to explore. BRING A FLASHLIGHT if you can. the beach was laways deserted when we visited there and we went four times in our month on Eleuthera. We saw a school of squid, tons of fish, lots of interesting coral ( wear watershoes) and a weird browwn fish on the bottom that would open huge bright blue wing-like fins to swim! The san here is pink, as they say....just pinkish. I love it though!! The water is shallow for a long ways out so snorkelling is awesome! be careful if there are waves because the rip tide is strong! You can see the Fast Ferry go by here.
