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 side of the island of Eleuthera, 1.8 miles east-northeast of Spanish Wells, You should consider dropping 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.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business. You will find the water here is fit for snorkeling, so bring your equipment if you are looking to do some underwater exploration.

If you go for sunny days which offer a serene enclave, then think about trying out Salt Kettle Beach; it is back within a much quieter section of Eleuthera.
