North Palmetto Point in Eleuthera is an exposed reef break that does not work very often. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Offshore winds blow from the southwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northeast. Reef breaks provide lefts and rights. Best around mid tide. Rarely crowded here. Watch out for urchins, rocks, sharks and coral.
