French Leave Beach, Governor's Harbour
(4.7/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see French Leave Beach and other attractions that appeal to you using our Eleuthera travel itinerary planner.

  • The first coast visited upon our arrival was the Atlantic one, in this vast and infinite sand spit. It was literally a race liberating at 17:00 with no soul met her, after the connecting flight from Miami ... were staying at Pineapple fields, across the street, where you also find the seafront restaurant "Tippy's.". Sea: smooth, spotless, baby blue, light blue, dark blue, all shades were possible (after you set foot in the Sea you have about twenty meters, then begins to get nene, we are the ocean etc.). our stronghold so close that they get a bath before breakfast ... a natural life, a view of the sunset and sunrise from tears ... by emotion. the protagonist of our daily indents when you decided to go to other beaches. forget everything above, even across the coast there is a sea even more breathtaking. This is just one of the wonders of this island over 160 kilometres ... Eleuthera was close to the heart. so close to the point where the Atlantic and Caribbean Sea meet softly ... up to recognize the deep blue and blue unspoiled ... We cannot forget ...
