The Beach Book - might be our prized family possession. Pages are dog-eared and Kalik stained with notes from various trips in the margins. I guess with modern technology you could use the coordinates and/or Google Earth but so much of the fun is picking a new beach from the book and the adventure getting there. Bret, thank you so much for the book and the many adventures it has lead our family on!
Good job. Great directions., Feb 26, 2015
Good job. Great directions. Must have if going to Eleuthera. Eleuthera is not for everyone. Swim, snorkel, dive, fish, read, wonder around, knap, local food - that's it. No night life, casino's, etc.
Excellent book!, Feb 8, 2015
Exactly the information I was looking for! This book does a very good job giving a thorough description of almost all the beaches of Eleuthera. I highly recommend it! It is smaller than I expected, not as much of a picture book as I thought it would be, but those things don't detract from its overall value.
the BEST book on Eleuthera beaches out there, Dec 29, 2014
by far the best book on beaches on Eleuthera. complete with pictures, descriptions and directions
Must have for exploring, Dec 24, 2014
Great book and really a must have if you like to explore! Makes great use of your time by helping you decide where you want to go. Directions good but sometimes off a tad but still well enough to find the beaches. I think a 5 star rating systems on the beaches would have been better than the 3 star because there is a big difference in all the 3 star beaches. It has a great quick look chart for shelling, snorkeling, water access, etc. It's a super great reference that we filled with post it notes before we even got there. Have fun in paradise.
highly recommend this book if you want to discover the best, July 15, 2014
as first time visitors to Eleuthera, we just kept commenting how lost we would have been without this book. we used it so much, the pages started to fall out. highly recommend the book if you want to discover the best of what Eleuthera has to offer.
This book made my trip!, May 29, 2014
I'm not usually one for tourist guides, but my girlfriend and I bought the Beach Book last month before we visited Eleuthera for the first time. It became the most valuable piece of information we had on the whole trip. The pictures, maps, and directions are all extremely accurate and easy to follow. We ended up going to a different beach every day (sometimes two) and many of them we never would have known existed with out this book! Having this as a resource while down there certainly added to the experience of an already amazing island. I strongly suggest this for anyone traveling to Eleuthera! I envy the authors, who got to experience all of those beaches!
Best guide to Eleuthera Beaches, May 5, 2014
This compact book is both beautiful and totally functional. Every beach has a two-page layout, with color photo, full description, and a rating. The indexes and the organization of the book make it easy to find the beaches in the area of the island you are visiting. When we were on Eleuthera, It was hard to find a useful map of the island, so the book's maps, alone, make The Beach Book an essential tool for anyone not already familiar with this lovely place.
We saw The Beach Book just after we returned from our recent trip. The book convinces us we will return again and again to explore new beaches at every visit. We especially appreciate the detailed driving instructions which will ensure we find the beaches we couldn't find on our own.
I can't imagine how this book could be any better.
Incredibly detailed!, May 4, 2014
This is a fantastic guide to Eleuthera's many, many beaches - incredibly detailed with gorgeous photography. I am really impressed by how comprehensive it is. The maps and details are very helpful - i'm confident I'll be able to find any beach I want on my next trip. I also appreciate the way the beaches are categorized, noting available shade, shelling possibilities, etc.
The photography is beautiful and makes me miss the island so much!
The *ultimate* guide to Eleuthera's legendary beaches ..., April 24, 2014
This book is a *must* for anybody who wants to explore the legendary beaches of Eleuthera. It is a quantum leap from the previous beach guide that everybody used for years. The color photography, detailed maps and driving instructions, the geek-friendly GPS coordinates, the clear-and-simple rating system -- it is a remarkable piece of work.
I'm an expat Eleuthera homeowner, have been here for years, and I'd consider The Beach Book a "must-have" for everybody from the first-time tourist to repeat-visitors to seasoned expats. For all the years we've been here, we're learning about beaches that even *we* didn't know existed. There might be some quibbles about various ratings and the names of some of these strands, but the names and relative ratings don't matter -- this book will get you there.
Perfect for anyone that wants to explore the island, April 18, 2014
This book is extremely detailed. The author has chosen his words careful so that a reader can truly imagine the Eleutheran beaches.
I found the photos of top quality and driving directions to the beaches to be accurate.
Super useful tool for visit to Eleuthera, March 29, 2014
Loved this book! The maps were great, and I was able to find beaches that I didn't even know existed. Great pics too! Definitely recommend this book to anyone who plans to visit Eleuthera. It was a great resource for my trip.
