Description [Suggest Change]

Preacher's Cave is the site of the first European settlement in the Bahamas. Like it's name, it's in a huge cave with lots of potential. I don't know what the restrictions are on these types of things, but it was a nice place to play during the 90+ degree summers.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Head to the north side of Eleuthera and follow the signs to Preacher's Cave. You'll see signs near the North Eleuthera Airport. The road is a dirt road but it's maintained pretty well.

I'm not sure what the rules are on bolting, but Preacher's Cave has these huge overhung features with pockets and tufas and if it's allowed to be bolted, someone should. It would be spectacular. Jan 16, 2014

Yeah I've eyeballed this are as well. TBH though, the place is pretty historically, culturally, and archelogically significant. I don't think it'd be a good idea to do any sort of bolting here. Shame though, because this is probably the best cliff system on the interior of the island I know of. Dec 7, 2017

Oh I agree MOHAlixPr Walter. I don't think Preacher's Cave would be an appropriate place to do anything. There are other places "inland" for bolting and climbing. I've been down there 10 times and there's SO much! If you want a hookup with a tour guide who does climbing trips and knows the deep water solo walls, message me and I'll get you that info!
