Tay Bay Beach is just a few steps away from Preacher's Cave, a famous tourist attraction of Eleuthera.
In the treacherous waters near this beach and because of the hidden underwater rock formation called The Devil's Backbone, the first settlers shipwrecked and took shelter in the cave.
For a map to find this beach easily, scroll down a bit.
From North-Eleuthera airport drive west for 1.5 miles. At the large Texaco petrol station turn right and go north in the direction of Spanish Wells.
After 6 miles there is a sharp, 90 degree bend to the left.
Do not use it but turn right into the dirt road at this kind of T-junction and continue straight on for 1.7 miles to another dirt road to your left.
There is a tiny, easy to miss, sign that reads *Preacher's Cave* and *Beach*. Follow this dirt road for 0.25 miles.
At the end, the sandy path to your right opens into the beach; the grassy path to your left goes to Preacher's Cave.
This is the northern-most part of Eleuthera. Click on this map to see all of North Eleuthera.
See Tay Bay beach at the upper right side of the map?... And to the left of it, the charming and nearby Ben Bay Beach.
Spanish Wells - at the far left of the map - can be reached by a short ferry ride from James Bay which is shown on the map, too.
This is the East side of the beach which is the right side, facing the water.
Viewed from under the shade of a Palmetto tree. A wonderful spot where you'll enjoy total privacy.
This is the eastern beach. You'll see it to your right after you followed the short beach access path from the Preacher's Cave parking area. It's about a 7 minutes walk from there.
