Central on the island of Eleuthera, Governor's Harbour is the only major settlement, and as such welcomes the most beach goers on a regular basis.  Although the beaches may be slightly more crowded than others on the island, they are still very calm -- except on Friday nights when bonfires and fish fries keep things lively. 

The Area's Beaches

You will find a large number of beaches to enjoy in and around the area. For more detail concerning a specific beach simply click on the names of the ones you're curious about.

Tippy's Beach

Browney Beach: The beach is accessible by car is just opposite the town of Governor's Harbour on Eluthera's long, skinny middle.

Another option worth considering is South Palmetto Point. Tan sands and turquoise waters make this beach a true sight to see.

Holmes Bay Beach: Tucked away, Holmes Bay Beach is clear of any real development, and the clean sand and water create the ultimate tropical sights. The only thing that beach-goers will find that is not in a pristine natural state, is the occasional villa tucked into the forest.
