Editorial Reviews

From the Author

We traveled, or attempted to travel, 250 roads to document and catalog the 135 beaches contained in this book. What started out as a project to map the island using satellite imagery and Powerpoint, if you can believe that, quickly became an extensive journey down all the roads and onto all the beaches of Eleuthera, Bahamas.

The research leading up to the on-island collection of information took months to assemble. Once we touched down we had a limited amount of time to gather a lot of information. There were a lot of wrong turns along the way, literally, as we made it our mission to try each and every road that seemed promising. It was kind of funny, thinking back, because we had deftly cataloged every road that we thought had the potential to lead to sand. What we often found at the end of our trek was that we cataloged something that looked white or grey on satellite photos. We probably know every whitish rock formation on the island, too!

Our first book is part research, part experience, part adventure, and part blood-sweat-and-tears. We probably made every mistake known to every first time self-publisher, but through a lot of trial and error we feel we've produced a book of high quality and even higher value.

The next The Beach Book is already in the planning stages, and our team of two is ready to hit the road very soon. Thanks for all of your support!

Find your beach,

Bret

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!

We are planning a 4 day trip to Eleuthera and we wanted to maximize our time there. The island is long and the roads might not be the best ones so we decided to plan the 4 days in advance and this book helped making the choices.

The Beach Book is a fantastic guide to Eleuthera's fabulous beaches, but also a great general guide to the island. We have visited Eleuthera twice, and have fallen in love with the island and its people. But without a guide, it would be nearly impossible to find many of the treasures of the island. This book makes them simple to find and enjoy. I am looking forward to using the book on my next trip in June and exploring many more of the wonders of Eleuthera.

Travel guides are my favorite books and The Beach Book is the best one yet. The directions, photos, descriptions and comprehensive coverage are all top notch. The book is perfect for first time visitors, as well as those who are looking for a new and off the beaten path destination. The Beach Book will really help me make the most of my limited time on the island. And it is also great reading for those long months in between visits. I am so glad to have this book.

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.

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.
