One of the few beaches we came across with a small parking lot. The water is perfect for swimming - really calm and warm.

Our holiday rental was close to this beach, so we spent much time here during our two-week's stay in Eleuthera. It is one of the easiest beaches to access, just off Queens Highway and simply beautiful - the most beautiful beach at the Caribbean side in my opinion (not taking the Caribbean side of Lighthouse Beach into account).

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 !
