Save yourself some time and take the road by Princess Cay. You will pass Princess Cay, then take the next left. You cant miss it. We read all sorts of reviews saying the road was terrible, must have 4 wheel drive vehicle. Well, after traveling lots of different beach roads in search of beaches in the beach book I'd have...

The beach is amazing, the sea is crystal clear and the sand is so soft and nice to walk on. The restaurants around the beach are nice and far enough away so that you feel as if you are alone walking on the beach. The sea itself was nice to swim in and you couldn't find any trash in it.

I read many reviews and forums about Lighthouse Beach, and made that one of the must go places during mine and my husband's trip to Eleuthera. In spite of the long rough ride, it did not disappoint! It is a perfect picture of paradise. Long lonely beach on the Atlantic side, with bluffs, cliffs, caves, and another long lonely beach... More

One of a kind beach. Beware of the rough road, need 4 x 4 vehicle with high clearance. Take the road by Princess Cay Resort the make a left of the road, then a right and you cut off lots of terrible road. Your vehicle will take a beating, it will get scratched, so be sure you do not have... More

Remote, beautiful white sand that feels like memory foam beneath your feet, aqua blue water, cool cliffs, amazing views! Bumpy long drive but worth it!

This is a very nice beach but a super bumpy ride in. We saw lots of kids the day we were there. We just took pics but did not get in the water as it looked a bit rough. Great beach for beautiful pics.

Lighthouse beach was hands-down-no-question the hardest beach to actually get to, from the condition of the road directly leading to it. Having said that, it was soooo worth it in how interesting and pretty it was! Definitely need 4wd.

According to the Beach Book, there are 3 beaches in this area: Lighthouse Beach North, LB Caribbean and LB Atlantic. We haven't tried the first one, but went straight to the Caribbean side and saw one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. The combination of turquoise water, white sand and lush vegetation was just mindblowing! We spent a... More

I have been to beaches on the US east coast, west coast, Hawaii, Bermuda - Lighthouse Beach is almost indescribable with mere words. This well kept secret is a little slice of heaven. It is quite a trek to get to - but nothing worth having in life comes easy and I feel truly blessed to have expierenced this type... More

This has to be possibly one of the most difficult beaches to reach - certainly the last three of four miles are down a reply rutted track which winds its way through the dense undergrowth so it isn't for the faint hearted or those in a small hatchback! That said its absolutely well worth the effort as its a beautiful... More
