Twin Sisters Beach

One of the most tropical beaches in the Bahamas, Twin Sisters Beach is known to have some of the clearest and calmest water, and some of the softest sand. If you happen to be on Eleuthera Island, then this is not a beach to miss.

Located on the northwestern side of the island of Eleuthera, You should consider dropping by whether or not you're staying particularly close by. Do you dream of finding a beach tucked into an untouched part of town? Many visitors seek a beach that's a long way from the nearest major city; less popular beaches like Twin Sisters Beach allow you much more room to spread out and feel comfortable.

How to Access The Beach
The beach is located off of the Queen's Highway, just before entering North Eleuthera.

Amenities and Ambiance

Backed by trees, Twin Sisters Beach grants guests plenty of privacy, and the shallow clear water gives them the best chance to cool off.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business. Happily, the off-shore waters are fit for snorkeling, so bring your gear if you want to see what lies beneath the surface.

If you happen to like sunny days that offer visitors a tranquil enclave, then you should enjoy Twin Sisters Beach; it is found within a more natural section of the region.
