Eleuthera is one of the islands in the Bahamas known for its unique pink sand beaches, colored so because of the coral reef that washes ashore. You'll find the color especially stands out in the light as the sun rises and falls, but even during the middle of the day there is something magical about the color of the beaches here. As far as conditions go, along the Atlantic coast you'll find slightly rougher conditions, but the overall theme is quiet, calm beaches.
You'll discover several beaches to choose from on the island. Regardless of whether you'd rather be part of a busy beach scene, or you'd rather have more of the beach to yourself, you should find some appealing options. To read a detailed article concerning one particular beach you can click on the names of the ones you want to learn about.
Savannah Sound Beach: Visitors will be surprised to realize that about half of what appears to be the shoreline is actually completed submerged under the clear water. The water is so clean that is is hard to tell well the dry land actually ends.
Another place that beach-goers can consider is Spanish Wells Beach. Calling it a beach is rather misleading, as a more appropriate name would be Spanish Wells Coast. This beaches stretchers along the entirety of the Northern coast of Spanish Wells. While this may make it difficult to pick the best spot, the good news is that you will never have to worry about not having enough space.
Lower Bogue Beach: A quiet retreat perfect for relaxing, Lower Bouge Beach is a tropical paradise that features perfect water and plenty of sand to claim your own spot.
