From endless pineapple fields to white- and pink-sand beaches to secluded coves and miles of coastlines, Eleuthera Island defines The Bahamas.
Much of the architecture and way of life was influenced by British Loyalists who settled here in the 1700s. This style has since been adopted by the other Bahamian islands, making Eleuthera Island the birthplace of the entire country.
In addition, the islands continue to charm visitors with tropical flair, as Eleuthera is known as one of the best islands in the Caribbean. This hilly, verdant island paradise became the “birthplace of the Bahamas”, and eventually one of most developed of the Bahamian Islands. It has a population of over ten thousand most of who are engaged in fishing, farming and the tourist industry.
Home to many celebrities and a favourite destination for second home owners the island enjoys an active property market with stable prices ensuring increasing levels of foreign investment. Located 200 miles from Florida and only 60 miles east of Nassau, Eleuthera is just over a mile wide and 110 miles long.
The main settlements of this quaint island are Governor's Harbour, Rock Sound, Tarpum Bay, Harbour Island, and Spanish Wells. With direct flights from the U.S. to three airports, the North Eleuthera Airport, Governor's Harbour Airport, and the Rock Sound Airport, Eleuthera has excellent communications.
