French Leave Beach, Governor's Harbour

4.7
#2 of 38 in Outdoors in Eleuthera
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.

  • Serene, secluded, and absolutely breathtaking. This gorgeous beach is the very definition of calming relaxation. Sitting and relaxing or walking up and down the mile long stretch of pink sand was exactly what we needed to acclimate to island life. Our French Leave resort host setup chairs and umbrellas for us, as well as offered a selection of food and beverages.
  • Absolutely beautiful and mostly to yourself.
  • Full of pretentious a-holes
  • A little difficult access by air Club. Frequented by Quebecers and Americans. Superb sandy beach rose as a result of the disintegration of shells.
