Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Take some time out to relax at French Leave Beach, a long stretch of white and pink coral-flecked sand leading to turquoise waters. The soft sand makes it an ideal location for barefoot walks along the shore, or for stretching out with a good book and a refreshing drink. While the water is not always totally calm, if your visit coincides with favorable conditions, you can explore the colorful coral and variety of fish underwater.

  • One of my favorite beaches on the island. Very romantic and peaceful. Easy to get to and roads were not bad.  more »
  • Beautiful, wide beach with very few people. Great walking beach at low tide. Nice sandy entry for swimming and the water is not cold.  more »
  • premier beach on Eleuthera- there were maybe 30 people here, water so easy to enter- sand bottom all the way.  more »

  • My wife and I's favorite beach on the island. Gentle surf most days, and great snorkeling just off the shore. There are nice bits or coral close up, but you can see some genuine reef by just heading out a little bit. I like just north of the little cay on the south side of the beach. Not a lot of shade on the beach in the morning, but otherwise a perfect pink sand paradise. One of the world's best beaches, easily
  • Serene. Solitary and exceptional service. Intimate and relaxing setting. The staff went out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Food is amazing with good portions, and the restaurant setting on the water is simply sublime. Personal golf carts for guests, and complimentary water sport equipment for use.
  • Beautiful pink sand beach, very similar to Harbour Island's beach, but more secluded
  • Top beach but they have to get one of those atvs to rake the beaches. If you want to be thought of a top beach destination then step up and clean them.
  • Gorgeous, just a real bummer with all the trash. Something needs to be done about all the plastic and trash.
