Surfer’s Beach is the most widely known surf break in the Bahamas. Located 2 1/2 miles south of Gregory Town, this surf break was discovered in the early 1950’s by Dudly Whittman the first surfer to explore the Bahama Islands in search of waves. He named his surf break Twin Silos after the path he and his bother hacked through the bush starting at the silos of the Hatchet Bay Plantation. Surfer’s Beach is a big left break with swells coming out of the blue ocean and breaking on a deep-water reef. The wave can best be compared as a large, slow moving wave on the outside and a cranking hollow wave on the inside. Surfers Beach does have right waves too, but they are a little tricky because they break over a shallow inside reef affectionately called Bone Yards.
