    Whatever type of beach vacation you are looking for, you’ll find it in the Bahamas. Take a moment to relax while strolling down its pink sands, or snorkel in its crystal clear waters, before simply lying back and watching the sun go down. The secluded beaches and perfect views are what will make you fall in love here — with nature and the peacefulness that the sea brings to all who visit (whether that be solo, with your partner, or with friends and family.) This beautiful destination is perfect for all beach lovers.

    Queens Bath

    Bring your climbing shoes! We had on chacos and managed, but those rocks are painful! Go at low tide to be able to get down in the pools. You could definitely sit in them and enjoy an afternoon or just do a quick visit. How much you see will depend on the tide. Recommend a local guide. 

    Ocean Hole

    Ocean Hole is a large inland salt water lake. It is referred to as a bottomless blue hole, has a rich Eco-system, and is home to lots of tropical fish waiting to show off how well they can jump for bits of bread. Known to be connected to the Atlantic Ocean, this body of water rises and recedes with the oceanic tides.

    The Ocean Hole Park which adjoins the blue hole was designated as a protected area in 1970 and has undergone various forms of infrastructure, which now surrounds the landmark, including a miniature stone wall and beautification of the area with coconut and sea grape trees

    Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve

    Designed as a showcase for native plants and their importance to the people of The Bahamas, the Preserve features gardens and wetlands designed by world-renowned landscape architect, Raymond Jungles, as well as trails through over 20 acres of natural areas. Walk with nature in this sanctuary for over 300 species of native plants, 65 species of birds, and 100 species of medicinal plants. The Preserve is operated by the Bahamas National Trust and funded by the Leon Levy Foundation. It was developed by Shelby White, trustee of the Foundation, in honor of her late husband, Leon Levy. The Preserve is the first national park on the island of Eleuthera.

    Lighthouse Beach

    The most beautiful beach in the Bahamas. Unspoiled and untouched. Please help the Eleutheran people keep it this way. Would really, really hate to see thousands of cruise ship passengers playing pirates and killing the beautiful reefs there. Please consider helping to preserve it. I have been visiting for over 30 years and want to spend 30 more years on this beautiful beach.

    Preacher's Cave

    Along with the island of Eleuthera, Preacher's Cave was discovered in the 1600s by Captain William Sayles. The placard at the entrance of the cave says “William Sayle shipwrecked at Devil Backbone found refuge here. Sermons held 100 years.” The cave is located approximately 10 miles from North Eleuthera Airport and is on the north shores of Eleuthera adjoining a long and broad sweeping beach called Tay Bay Beach.

    Ten Bay Beach

    Ten Bay Beach is located on the Caribbean Sea side of Eleuthera Island, so the waters of this beach are warm and tranquil. The beach is the perfect spot to bring a picnic and spend the day. The shores of the beach are lined with large casuarina trees and palm trees which provide shade from the hot sun.
    The calm protected water of the bay is warm, and the water is shallow for several meters off the shore, making it a great place for swimming. There are rocky cliffs at either end of the bay which provide protection for fish, making it an excellent spot for snorkeling.
    Ten Bay Beach in Eleuthera is 3.7 miles south of Palmetto Point crossroads. A blue and yellow road sign on your right will say Beach Access. Drive down the dirt road for about half a mile and there is parking along the side of the road.
    This beach is fairly secluded, and you will often be the only person on the beach. If you stay all day you will be rewarded with a beautiful sunset as this beach is west facing.

    Pink Sands Beach

    Harbour Island is most renowned for its beautiful Pink Sand Beach, located along its eastern Atlantic Ocean side. It almost seems endless, stretching for some three plus miles, and it is 50 to 100 feet wide. Considered one of the very best beaches in The Islands of The Bahamas, it was featured in The Travel Channel's World's Best Beaches segment in March 2005 and named 'Best Sand Beach'. It was one of 10 beaches worldwide to be included in the program.

    The almost indescribable pale pink color of the sand comes from microscopic coral insects, known as Foraminifera, which have a bright pink or red shell full of holes through which it extends pseudopodia, footings that it uses to attach itself and feed. Foraminifera are among the most abundant single cell organisms in the ocean and play a significant role in the environment. These animals live on the underside of reefs, like the nearby Devil's Backbone, on the sea floors, beneath rocks, and in caves. After the insect dies, the wave action crushes the bodies and washes the remains ashore and mixes it in with the sand and bits of coral. The pink stands out more in the wet sand at the water's edge. Unlike other parts of the world, the sand here is always cool, so you can walk about freely with bare feet.

    Eleuthera Island Farm

    The shop is run by the owners daughter and they have lived on the island 30 years. They are very knowledgeable, fruit and veggies are priced great and they make bread on Thursday’s. They also have homemade pasta sauces and jams.All vegetables are grown organically.
