Best Time To Visit: Eleuthera can be visited all year round, with the most pleasant weather to be found between December and April.
Key Cruising Areas: The long, thin coastline of Eleuthera makes for easy yet highly rewarding cruising. Once you have explored the island’s many stunning beaches, make the short trip to the exclusive Harbor Island, and quaint ‘lobster capital’ Spanish Wells - islands which lie a short distance off either side of the coast of North Eleuthera.
Don’t Miss: A sunset at Lighthouse Beach. After a day spent exploring this secluded beach’s caves, make the steep walk up to the old lighthouse on Eleuthera’s southernmost tip to be rewarded by a view of the two oceans on either side of the cliffs.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: The Cove is Eleuthera’s fine dining restaurant, offering ocean views, fresh seafood, and exquisite local-inspired flavours. Their well-positioned bar, perched on the edge of a bluff is the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner. For a rustic, yet undeniably authentic, Bahamian culinary experience, visit Governor Harbor’s Fish Fry or the many roadside cookouts that pop up on a Saturday. At the other end of the spectrum, the short cruise to Harbor Island offers a number of high-end restaurants, including the Dunmore, The Landing, and the Ocean View Club.
