Eleuthera Island Beaches

It was our last full day here on Eleuthera Island and we wanted to make the most of it so we checked out some more beaches.  We were told that the old Club Med beach was spectacular so we had to drive up to Governor’s Harbour the capital; which is half way up the island and it takes 1.5 hours to drive to.  Once you are in to the town then you turn right at the Kalik Beer liquor store.  You drive up a hill which is very pretty being lined with bougainvillea flowers and handsome housing.  You will come to the end of the paved road and then turn left and then right and drive down to the beach.  It actually is not on the grounds of the Club Med but right beside it.  There was a hurricane that wiped out most of the buildings, but the grounds are still being kept up with the hope of the sale of the property.  Personally if I had a bunch of spare million dollars I would snap this piece of property up really quickly.  The grounds are great but the beach is to die for.  It is wide and long and white with pink sand ingrained into it.  The water is shallow with beautiful shades of turquoise to stare at. 


I did not want to leave this place, it was heaven.  If I could build a house on this property or develop it and live there I would be eternally happy waking up to this view each morning.  There was not a soul on it for the first hour and then 3 people and a town dog wandered down.  We had to leave because we wanted to check out Whiteland Beach as well.  Darren backed out the car and got stuck in a sand trench.  So I got into the driver’s seat and he pushed us out.  There was no one around for miles to push us out, so I was a bit tense.
We were on our way and we turned into another Caribbean side beach which was almost equally as lovely as the Club Med Pink Beach.  We snapped some photos and drove on.  We stopped to see an Atlantic side beach and it was not near as pretty but still much prettier than say a California beach.  We stopped into the grocery store for a supply or two and I asked the guy the directions to Whiteland Beach.  It is notoriously hard to get to.  We followed his directions and we did not find it.  We wasted about ½ hour looking and then gave up and went home to Powell Pointe to spend our last night on the island.  We relaxed on the boardwalk of the Marina and took in the sunset which was beautiful.
