Surfer's Beach

Natural Area, Beach, Caves, Cayes, and Islands
Bahamas Ministry of Tourism

History has it that the first group of surfers discovered the wave action here in the late 1960's; and whether you are a professional surfer or just want to have some fun, this is the place to be.

Surfer's Beach is located on the Atlantic side of Eleuthera, between the townships of Hatchet Bay and Gregory Town, in an area known as Eleuthera Island Shores. Southwest winds blow breaks in from the Atlantic, and it is known to be one of the best surfing areas in The Bahamas, and the second best beach for surfing in the world. Many experts compare the surfing here with Hawaii's finest, and lots of surfers gather here every year to enjoy a good wave.

Even if you just want to watch, the two-mile stretch of beach has some of the best sugary-soft white sand in The Islands of The Bahamas.

Accessibility Notes

Persons who cannot swim should stay away from this area, due to the high waves. Those who are physically challenged or in wheelchairs might also find it difficult moving around on the sandy terrain.
