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 will find an abundance of beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. To get additional information about one particular beach click on the names of the ones you are interested in.

Tippy's Beach

Browney Beach: Long and straight, this beach is picture-book Bahamas with its gorgeous turquoise waters and soft, fine sand. The beach is long and wide and surrounded on both ends by rock formations which make for an interesting climbing experience if you have proper shoes.

Another location that beach-goers can 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.
