Salt Kettle Beach

Another secluded and tropical beach on the north coast of Eleuthera Island, Salt Kettle Beach features some of the brightest sand and blue water that is only rivaled by the sky.

Located on the northwestern edge of the island of Eleuthera, 1.8 miles east-northeast of Spanish Wells, You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying in the vicinity.

Amenities and Ambiance

The beach is protected by a deep forest on one side and nothing but calm ocean on the other, so do not expect to see much else.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location. Fortunately, the water here is clear enough for snorkeling, so purchase or rent some equipment if you want to see the underwater world.

Salt Kettle Beach offers visitors an idyllic and serene environment, especially since the surrounding region is free of city-life and traffic.
