Ben Bay Beach is in the northern part of Eleuthera and relatively easy to get to except at the very end where you’ll need to walk in. The road is easy to navigate but towards the end by the beach there are two large mud holes so it’s best to park on the side and walk the rest of the way. In the video below you can see those mud holes.
The beach is relatively private and sheltered by the cove so it’s small but good for snorkeling. I’m not sure how the shelling is but the beach alone is worth visiting even if there aren’t any. There are also trees along the edge so for part of the day you should be able to find some shade.
