Read on below for more information on Alabaster Beach in Eleuthera and why you may want to add this special destination to your travel itinerary during your time on Eleuthera!
Helpful Hints for Your Visit to Alabaster Beach
Alabaster Beach is a fantastic place to visit, but to help you enjoy your experience here to the fullest, we’ve put together a few tips on what to keep in mind before you go.
To get to Alabaster Beach in Eleuthera, drive south on Queen’s Highway from the airport, turning right onto the road that leads to Cocodimama Charming Resort.
Alabaster Beach is a mile long beach named for its pristine, powdery white sands, which are ideal for strolling along the Caribbean, looking for shells, beachcombing, picnicking, and sunbathing. The waters of the Caribbean side of the island, especially at Alabaster Beach, are shallow and calm close to the shoreline, meaning that small children can play in the water as well.
For those who are more inclined to be active during their beach day at Alabaster Beach, swimming and snorkeling are fun and popular activities to try here, due to the smooth nature of the water.
Finally, like many of the beaches on Eleuthera, Alabaster Beach is a laidback, tranquil setting. You won’t find much commercialization here—especially since this beach is located in a more remote, rural section of the island. There are no restrooms onsite, so plan accordingly.
Fun Things to See and Do Nearby
Being a more secluded beach, Alabaster Beach’s main attraction is often its serene emptiness. However, there are still fun things to do in the Bahamas! Governor’s Harbour is one of the main hubs of Eleuthera and is also home to Governor’s Harbour Beach. Additionally, historical sites like the NAVFAC Base and the Big Tree at Palmetto Point are within driving distance, while other sites such as Tarpum Bay Castle and Cotton Bay Golf Club are a bit further of a drive. For dining, The Beach House and Bistro Restaurant are two wonderful restaurants. You can also dine at Cocodimama.
