Beaches in Governors Harbour

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. 

Beach Choices In The Area

You'll find an abundance of beaches to enjoy in and around the area. For detailed information about a single beach click on the names of the ones you're interested in.

Tippy's Beach

Browney Beach: Browney Beach's quiet, peaceful atmosphere, fine while sand, and crystal-clear waters makes for a luxurious, romantic escape. Go snorkeling, then dig your toes in the sand as you watch the sun go down on another day in paradise.

Another option that beach-goers can consider is South Palmetto Point. South Palmetto Point East is located along the east coast of Eleuthera Island, near Pineapple Cays.

Holmes Bay Beach: While there is no dedicated parking area, those arriving via car will be able to park along the side of the road. However, most visitors are from the nearby villas and cottages, and they either walk or take their bicycles.
