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.

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

Another alternative for beach-goers to consider is South Palmetto Point. Like many beaches on the quite island of Eleuthera, South Palmetto Point East is a quiet one. Visitors looking to get away from it all will do so easily here.

Holmes Bay Beach: Secluded and hidden behind a wall of trees, this tropical paradise offers all visitors a chance to relax to the calm ocean breeze with the Bahama sun shining down on them.
