Are you ready to embark on a tropical adventure of a lifetime? It's time to pack your bags, don your beachwear, and grab your trusty flip-flops because we're headed to the breathtaking island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas!
From the moment you arrive, Eleuthera will captivate you with its stunning natural beauty and endless adventures. Even the airport is an experience, with what looks like a house serving as the terminal building next to a runway. But don't worry; with a bit of patience and the guidance of the friendly ground crew, you'll be on your way to paradise in no time.
Renting a car is essential to fully experience all that Eleuthera has to offer. We recommend a Jeep with ample clearance, perfect for exploring the island's secluded beaches and off-the-beaten-path gems. Be sure to book your rental in advance and arrange for pickup to ensure a smooth start to your adventure.
Your journey begins at Lighthouse Beach, a picture-perfect paradise with crystal-clear waters and powder-soft sand. The snorkeling is top-notch, but access has changed since Disney Cruise Lines purchased the area.
Next, we'll head to Queens Bath, a natural wonder with stunning views and refreshing pools. You may have to do some climbing and tricky footwork to get down to the pools, but you'll be glad you did once you’ve made it down to them.
The adventure continues at the Glass Window. What was once a dramatic rock formation that separates the Atlantic Ocean from the Caribbean Sea is now a two-lane road. Snap some envy-inducing Instagram shots of the contrasting colors.
For surfers, Surfers Beach is a must-visit spot, but be sure to do your research to find the best times to catch some waves. Even on a flat day, it’s a fun beach to explore or just chill and lay in the sun.
Another highlight of our journey is the hidden gem of Sapphire Blue Hole, a secluded paradise with deep blue waters and lush vegetation. Jump from on high into the refreshing waters below or simply sit back and bask in the quiet beauty of your surroundings.
If that's not enough, book a charter out of Spanish Wells to swim with the pigs. You’ll find opportunities for this on many Bahamian islands but take some time with your charter to explore other areas, like far-off sand bars that let you stand in the middle of the ocean to mangroves teaming with life.
No trip to Eleuthera is complete without exploring Governor's Harbor. This picturesque town is a great place to sample local cuisine and immerse yourself in the island's vibrant culture.
Once you've explored all of Eleuthera's more popular spots, uncover hidden beaches that offer the perfect escape. Some of the most secluded beaches require driving down questionable roads, so be sure to give time and bring snacks for the day.
Don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure! Slip into your beachwear, grab your flip-flops, and get ready to explore the breathtaking island of Eleuthera.
