Beautiful pink sand. Not too many people. Bright blue water. We walked this beach almost everyday on our vacation as we were staying on the next beach over. The pink sand is like no other beach I've ever seen!

The weather wasn’t great for our stay but we saw enough to know this beach is as good or better than any other beach out there. The water is so many shades of blue. It’s basically vacant. We never counted more than 18 people including...More

Our first visit to the island. We used the Beach Book to find our way here. It is a must. This Atlantic side Beach runs for along the way, from the old Club med beach down to French Leave. Ending probably somewhere near Poponi. Anyways...More

Lovely long beach! We happened to stop here and were very pleased to learn that the nearby Marriott resort will bring you food and drink and you can rent an umbrella and chairs. Snorkeling was fairly good although lots of old beach chairs underwater. Saw...More

French Leave Beach, formerly Club Med Beach, is the perfect location to unwind. The light pink hue invites you to walk the long stretch of beach. Whether you are staying at French Leave or elsewhere, if you are looking for the quintessential Bahamas beach, you...More

Excellent accommodations, wonderful staff. If you’re only there for a few days I suggest you just stay at the resort and enjoy their amenities. It far outshines anything outside of the resort.

Beachside of the resort. So beautiful. So worth it. Make the trip. You probably need a golf cart (or car) to get here... and a lot of bug spray. But it’s worth every ounce of effort.

This is an easy beach to drive or walk to. That is if you don’t mind walking a healthy hill,Buccaneer’s hill. Closest to the city area of Governors Harbour. It has pink sand just as most the Atlantic beaches in Eleuthera.Enjoy the beauty.

Spent everyday of our trip there and never saw more than 8-10 people on the beach, the water was amazing and it was great having food and drink service there as well.

I’m not sure what port your cruise ship would be using but you can call French Leave and request that they organize transportation for you from the terminal to the resort. There were cabs at the airport but we preferred to... More
