Official Eleuthera Harbour Island brings you information on Hatchet Bay Cave that you must know before planning on exploring these amazing caves located in North Eleuthera.
The Caribbean is known for its cave system, which is one of the largest ones in the world. Hatchet Bay Cave is known for its stalagmites and stalactites. It is also known for its century-old graffiti and charcoal drawings that give the caves an ancient mood and flavor.
Hatchet Bay cave is an extensive cave system almost as long as 1,000 feet and three levels. You can traverse the cave levels using proper hanging stairs while enjoying extravagant stalactite and stalagmite formations.
For Fun or Thrills – Some of us might go there just for the thrills as it is known to contain a good number of bats. We don’t recommend going there alone or without a guide as the water level rises occasionally and you don’t want to get trapped or waste your trip.
The Legend of the Lost Treasure – There is a legend about the caves that Pirates used to use those caves as their playgrounds or for hiding, so be ready to stumble on some rich treasures the next time you are exploring.
Accessibility – It is free to go there, and you can take a car via the Queens’s Highways. Don’t forget to directions beforehand. You need to park your car on solid ground and make the remaining journey on foot via a trail near the beach as the cave’s entrance is below ground.
