It is an 8-minute walk (or 3-minute golf-cart ride in our 6+ seat electric golf cart) down the hill to famous French Leave Beach, a mile-long crescent of pink sand that has been ranked in the top 20 of the world. A 5-minute walk (2-minute golf cart ride) in the other direction takes you to the village of Governor’s Harbour.

We love the Yellow House!
Had so much fun carting to and from French Leave Beach. Eleuthera has beyond welcoming and Bob & Kathy are excellent hosts – always available and willing to help with anything! Hope to be back soon!
