French Leave Beach, Governor's Harbour

4.7
#1 of 11 in Beaches 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.
