The main town of Hopetown is where visitors will find the highest number of beaches on the island, which may be why it is the most frequented by tourists who stay on the island of Elbow Cay.  Regardless of which of the island's beaches you choose to spend your days on, you'll notice that in low tide they tend to stretch out for miles, allowing even the most tentative swimmers to explore. 

Which Beaches Are Available?

You will find a good group of beaches to consider visiting on the island. Just click on the name of each beach to get additional information concerning that particular stretch of sand.

Hope Town Beach

Tahiti Beach: Located at the far end of Elbow Cay Island, Tahiti Beach is a secluded shoreline with cool blue waters and sugary white sands.

Another alternative that beach-goers can consider is Garabonzo Beach. Visitors who come to the beach should not be expecting very many amenities. Save the occasional villa, there are no buildings on the beach, and you will only have the palm trees to give you shade.

Elbow Cay Beach: There's no airport on Elbow Cay so you'll need to take a boat. A popular thing for tourists to do is to fly into Marsh Harbor and take the ferry over to Hope Town Harbor in the north or White Sound in the middle of the island.

The table directly below summarizes a few details regarding the beaches located on the island.
