Surfers Beach

The most widely known surf break in the BAHAMAS. Surfers Beach is located 2 1/2 miles south of Gregory Town. This surf break was discovered in the early 1950's by Dudly Whittman the first surfer to explore the Bahama Islands in search of waves. He named his surf break Twin Silos after the path he and his bother hacked through the bush starting at the silos of the Hatchet Bay Plantation. Surfers Beach is a big left break with swells coming out of the blue ocean and breaking on a deep-water reef. The wave can best be compared as a large, slow moving wave on the outside and a cranking hollow wave on the inside. Surfers Beach does have right waves too, but they are a little tricky because they break over a shallow inside reef affectionately called Bone Yards.

Hatchet Bay

Once known as Shark Pit because of the large school of sharks concentrated here that fed on the by products of the Hatchet Bay Plantation's chicken processing operation that were daily dumped in the Ocean. Back in the 80's and early 90's this place was definitely off limits for surfing but since that time the Plantation has closed down and the sharks have dispersed leaving the Island's premier big wave break. Located just 10 miles south of Gregory Town, Hatchet Bay can hold even the biggest Atlantic swell offering both lefts and rights.

James Point

Located some 30 miles south of Gregory Town is probably the best wave on the island. This surf break was discovered in 1972 by a young surf grom by the name of Harry Wilson. Only 14 years old at the time on his Easter break from Cape Henlopen High, he found himself riding lefts at Surfers Beach. As he sat outside waiting for sets he would always look to the south where a finger of land stuck out and while water could be seen even further off shore. After talking to many of the natives he discovered the peninsula he was asking about was called James Point and was located behind the settlement of James Cistern near the capital city of Governor's Harbor. So, the very next day, he lied about his age, rented a scooter, and headed south in search of the waves he had seen breaking off the point. Late afternoon found him pushing his scooter because the road he'd found had turned into a soft sandy trail that wound it's way along the Atlantic Shore line. As he came to top of a sandy dune, he stopped and gasped for what he saw he knew no other surfer had ever laid eyes on. It was the point at last with light off shore winds and waves peeling. But what he did not expect was a most beautiful tropical scene. To the inside of the point rimmed with coconut palms and century plants was a tranquil half moon cove with a brilliant white sand beach. The waves peeled from the point into the cove with a channel that seemed like you could paddle out without ever having a wave break over you.
