Holiday Beach

This infrequently visited beach is a surfers haven and is located adjacent to the aptly named Surfer's Beach.

Located near the heart of the island of Eleuthera, 1.3 miles north of Alice Town, Holiday Beach is on the North West coast of the island, You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you're staying particularly close by. It's often said that Holiday Beach is perfect for escaping the hustle of The Bahamas' urban areas. Other nearby beaches you'll come across in the Bahamas may have the same warm sand and calming breezes as Holiday Beach, but are usually more cramped since they're located by some of the most popular tourist areas in town.

How to Access The Beach
Take the road that heads north from - and away from - Alice Town. You'll need a 4X4 if you wanna drive all the way there, but the walk isn't too bad.

Amenities and Ambiance

The coast at this stretch is rockier than Surfer's Beach, but the wave quality is the same, and should be surfed only by experienced surfers.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.

Holiday Beach grants a calm and tranquil environment, thanks to the fact that the surrounding region is more rural than urban.
