 Access

Drive southeast from Gregory Town on Queens highway. As soon as you see Hatchet Bay on your right you need to look for a Bahamas Telephone sign on your left. Turn left at the sign and you will pass a cell phone tower and a power plant on your right. The road will change from asphalt to dirt. Continue on the dirt road until you see a gate and a sign that reads "No Trespassing". Turn left just before the sign, park and follow the path to the beach.

 Additional Information

This spot is a little tricky getting in the water. The best spot I have found is at the northern most corner of the beach. There is a little patch of sand here and if you time it right you can get out easily. Beware of the current rushing out, it can put you in a dangerous position. It will pull you towards the cliff and if you can't beat it you will pay.

Atmosphere

The best thing about this spot is that nobody goes here because of the rocks. It is a great surf spot with a sketchy entry and that keeps the crowd mellow.
