Eleuthera, Bahamas

Eleuthera is a small island in the Bahamas that is located due east of New Providence (Nassau). At 100
miles long and a mere two miles wide, Eleuthera effortlessly keeps travelers near its secluded pink-
and white-sand beaches. Together with Harbour Island, Eleuthera charms travelers with colonial
villages and pineapple plantations.

The Out Island of Eleuthera is known for its gorgeous beaches and friendly people. Out Islands are the
most remote in the Bahamas archipelago of islands. But please don't confuse being secluded with
being sleepy. The Out Islands are home to some of the world's most stunning beaches, dive sites, and
fishing sites. So you can be as relaxed or as active as the day allows. Come stay at Coconut Point and
experience paradise!

Getting There

Eleuthera can be most easily reached from Fort Lauderdale (FLL) or West Palm Beach (PBI) in Florida

Eleuthera's Governor's Harbour (GHB) airport. Alternately, it takes about 20 minutes to fly from Nassau
to GHB. There are 3 airports on Eleuthera. Governor's Harbour is the most convenient to Coconut Point,
but guests can also fly into North Eleuthera and Rock Sound.

Exploring Eleuthera

Vacationing in Eleuthera is a way to get to know the REAL Bahamas. There is a lot more to the
Bahamas than the casino towers, straw markets and conch fritters of Nassau. In Eleuthera, you WON'T
find high rises, strip malls, casinos, chain stores and restaurants, street peddlers, crowds or
congestion. In fact, Eleuthera has no working traffic lights (there is one light on the island and it was
knocked-out of service by a hurricane many years ago)!

Some island sights to see include:

Lighthouse Point
Harbor Island
Governor's Harbor Friday Night Fish Fry
Hatchett Bay Caves
Preacher's Cave
Queen's Baths
Ocean Hole
The Island School
Glass Window Bridge
The Island Farm
Island Made Gift Shop
Fishing, Diving and Kayaking excursions

Dining

There are a number of good restaurants near Coconut Point. One of our favorites not to be missed is
Tippy's. The location is great--right on the Atlantic--and most of the time is open to the ocean breezes.
The menu features fresh seafood, pizza, pastas and salads as well as Bahamian dishes. It is located
on the Banks Road between North Palmetto Point and Governor's Harbor.
