Explorers beware, lest you suffer the same fate as William Sayles; a captain who shipwrecked on Eleuthera in the 1600's and was forced to find refuge in what is known now as Preachers Cave. Today however, people seek out this cave for its natural beauty and wonderful photo opportunities.

Very different than the often thought of dark and damp caves, Preacher's Cave follows the tropical beach suit and offers a sunnier alternative. Holes in the ceiling lets in plenty of light, making it a great place for anyone looking to casually visit the cave.

While Eleuthera is one of the more popular islands of the Bahamas, there is not city comparable to Nassau on it, so even getting to the island can be an adventure. One on the island, you will have to head all the way north, via Queen's and Public Highway and then turn towards Tay Bay Beach. If you have the ability to sail, simply dropping anchor near the beach may be the best way.

Preacher's Cave is located on the northwestern side of the island of Eleuthera, 5.0 miles north-northwest of Mano Creek; it's five and a half miles (eight and a half kilometers) to the northwest of Dunmore Town.
