Local’s Guide to the Beaches of Eleuthera

Sun, Surf and Sand; Bahamian Style

The Beaches of Eleuthera are the stuff dream vacations are made of. If you are heading to the beguiling isles of the Bahamas you will need to know that not all of the gorgeous beaches are the same. They each have their own personalities, and here is the local lowdown from our Bahamian girl who will happily introduce us to them.


Located on a 4,500 acre private, secluded nature and beach preserve on the tip of southwest Eleuthera, Cape Eleuthera is surrounded by uninhabited wilderness and 18 miles of shoreline with multiple beaches.


This beach is located minutes from North Eleuthera. Wind your way down a sandy grassy path overgrown with sea grapes to find a favorite picnic spot after exploring Preacher’s Cave, one of North Eleuthera’s best known landmarks. The color of the water from this spot is heavenly.


One of the handfuls of pink sand beaches on Eleuthera, beautiful French Leave Beach is located just outside of Governor’s Harbour.


This beach is located in South Eleuthera near Cape Eleuthera and is known for its miles of unspoiled pink, soft, sandy beaches, as well as an old lighthouse located on a dramatic limestone promontory overlooking the ocean.


This beach is located 2 miles from Gregory Town. The hang ten set also knows that Eleuthera is a hot wave-riding destination, with Surfer’s Beach drawing sun-bleached guys and gals to its island break.


This beach is located 9 miles south of Governor’s Harbour in Savannah Sound. It is naturally shaded by large casuarina trees in the morning, but a sun lover’s paradise on a warm Bahamian afternoon.


Located near Governor’s Harbour the beach at Pineapple Fields offers spectacular views and Tippy’s, a one-of-a-kind restaurant and beach bar that one can sit, have a Kalik or lemonade and take in the awesome view.
