This enchanting island is divided into two regions, North Eleuthera and South Eleuthera. Stretching across an impressive 110 miles, Eleuthera is adorned with picturesque and charming villages like Tarpum Bay, Bannerman Town and Hatchet Bay.
As you explore, make sure to visit The Devil’s Backbone, a shallow yet jagged reef that has claimed more vessels than any other reef in the nation, standing as a testament to its awe-inspiring power.
Allow yourself to be embraced by the untouched beauty of Lighthouse Beach or Twin Coves Beach. If you’re up for a scenic adventure, embark on the two-mile hike required to access the powdery white sands to appreciate the unspoiled landscapes that surround you. If not, you can discover the other 148 seemingly untouched beaches, each more idyllic than the last, inviting you to bask in their beauty and tranquility.
In Eleuthera, you’ll also have the chance to encounter pineapple plantations, serving up the freshest and sweetest pineapples that will tantalize your taste buds.
An unmissable experience awaits at the Glass Window Bridge, just north of Gregory Town, where you’ll witness an unforgettable scenic view. This natural rock formation separates the mighty Atlantic Ocean from the calm and mesmerizing waters of the Caribbean Sea, offering a striking contrast that will leave you in awe.
Immerse yourself in history by visiting the legendary Preachers Cave, a cherished shelter for Eleuthera’s founder, Captain William Sayles. Afterward, unwind on the secluded and peaceful Tay Bay Beach, taking a refreshing swim or enjoying a serene stroll along the shore, often undisturbed by the presence of others.
Dive enthusiasts will find delight in the little town of Current, where the Current Cut boasts a fast and powerful current in a narrow 100-yard-wide passage. This exhilarating “drift dive” is a favorite among divers and is regarded by some as one of the world’s top dive sites.
For a taste of being on your very own private island, venture to Spanish Wells, where the shallow waters provide a dreamy playground for children to splash around. As the lobster capital of The Bahamas, you’ll appreciate the sight of lobster fishing boats lining the docks.
After a blissful afternoon spent at Gaulding Cay Beach, treat yourself to mouthwatering local Bahamian cuisine and delightful island cocktails at Daddy Joe’s restaurant, completing your day with flavors that will linger in your memory.
