Plan Your Eleuthera and Harbour Island Vacation

You haven't experienced a real escape until you've vacationed in Eleuthera. Simple luxury resorts are the norm, deserted expanses of white- or pink-sand beaches are your playground, and islanders are genuinely friendly. Although the low-key, relax-and-relax-some-more island vacation isn't for everyone, Eleuthera is the place to go when you need to recharge your batteries. Seclusion,

sun, and starry skies—just what the doctor ordered.

Top Reasons To Go

  1. Play in pink sand Glorious, soft pink sand, the ethereal shade of the first blush of dawn, draws beach connoisseurs to Harbour Island, which boasts a world-famous 3-mile stretch. Plenty of pretty pink beaches also dot Eleuthera's east and north coasts.
  2. Ogle island architecture Lovely 18th- and 19th-century homes with storybook gables and gingerbread verandahs are the norm on Harbour Island and Spanish Wells. Picturesque Victorian houses overlook Governor's Harbour in Eleuthera.
  3. Savor soulful sounds Nights here rock with the hot new Bahamian group Afro Band, the hip-hop of TaDa, the traditional sound of Jaynell Ingraham, the calypso of Dr. Sea Breeze, the soul music of Ronnie Butler, and the impromptu performances of local resident Lenny Kravitz (who built a recording studio in Gregory Town).
