With its superb fishing spots, diving and snorkeling, lovely white and pink sanded beaches, and a wealth of unspoiled natural beauty, Eleuthera Island rivals the Abacos in popularity among visitors. Rolling green hills and cliffs overlook the lovely settlements, where puritan pilgrims once discovered the origins of the Bahamas. Discover a plethora of beautiful beaches, natural attractions, resorts, and historical sights in the many settlements on Eleuthera or on the two satellite islands, Harbour Island and Spanish Wells.

Rock Sound, one of Eleuthera's largest settlements, lies in the south. It houses St. Luke's Anglican Church and the island's largest supermarket shopping center. A mile southeast, Ocean Hole exists as a unique attraction, a large inland saltwater lake. Manmade steps carved into the surrounding coral allows people to climb down to the lake's edge and feed the teeming fish. Interestingly, a diver once reported that several cars lounge at the bottom.

A three-hour drive south from Rock Sound brings you to the tip of Eleuthera and Bannerman Town. Enjoy the gorgeous pink-sanded beach, where you can see Mt. Alvernia on Cat Island on a clear day. Further north, spend a short time at Tarpum Bay, a lovely settlement full of colorful houses and goats roaming the streets. Visit the Tarpum Bay Shopping Center for groceries and souvenirs.

Governor's Harbour offers a host of great restaurants and bars. For those who desire a relaxing suntan but without the daytime crowds, drive up the main road to Hidden Beach, a sandy hideaway sheltered by rock formations and a great snorkeling spot as well.

In mid-Eleuthera, Hatchet Bay contains the island's only marina. If you want an adventure to remember, explore The Cave, a subterranean tunnel outfitted with bats and stalactites.
