Eleuthera Lighthouse Beach :: Bahamas
Up and Down the Island: South
Excerpted from Book by Everild Young - “Eleuthera: The Island Called Freedom”, 1966
Although the road is wide and well-surfaced after Greencastle, one sees very few cars, and no houses. An occasional clearing for crops is the only thing that breaks the monotony of the bush into one arrives at the south-east point the island. But the drive is well worth taking, as the beaches right at the end are gloriously unspoiled.
A derelict lighthouse tops the final spur of rock and from it one overlooks two more massive, bush-covered rocks separated from it by a channel. These are alive with terns in the nesting season, the birds seeming to realize they cannot be disturbed.
