Eleuthera Governors Harbour

Points-of-Interest, Trip Reports and Restaurants Reviewed

These reviews of Eleuthera are a collection of people, places and things on the island accompanied by photos, maps, interviews and even a little music. Our reviews reveal how Eleuthera offers many different opportunities to the visitor, vacationer or even a vacation homeowner. For some, Eleuthera is the multi-colored waters that surround the island. For others, it is pink sand between their toes and a cool drink, or indulging in delicious Bahamian fare. Some like to chow with the islanders at the Friday night fish fry, and for the revelers, party at Elvina's in Gregory Town till the wee hours of the morning. But for most who make the trip to Eleuthera, the island of freedom, they come for its peace and serenity -- that feeling of being far removed from the rest of the world.

There is so much more to Eleuthera beyond these reviews. Part of the fun and adventure of island travel is the exploration and discovery, and Eleuthera has no shortage of those. Discover Eleuthera and see how beautiful and relaxing freedom can be.
