29Glass Window Bridge

show on map
Long: -76.604115
Lat: 25.437558

Located a few miles north of Gregory Town, the narrowest part of Eleuthera is a storm battered (now one lane) concrete bridge, where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean.  No, it doesn’t look like a window from the top, but sailors named this area the Glass Window because they could see through the natural limestone arch to the Atlantic on the other side.  Artist Winslow Homer found the site stunning, and painted Glass Window in 1885. The original stone arch, created by Mother Nature, was destroyed by a combination of storms in the 1940s, and subsequent concrete bridges have been built and damaged or destroyed by hurricanes throughout the years. This is a great photo spot, but use care when the wind is whipping up the waves over the bridge

31Old Navy Base

Long: -76.314114
Lat: 25.269169

(aka “Jurassic Park Beach”)

Traveling  north on the Queen’s Highway from Governor’s Harbour, just before Receiver’s Beach on the left, you will see an unmarked  paved road on the Atlantic side, in remarkably good condition, which will take you to what looks like a scene from Jurassic Park.  Originally known as the "US Navy Experimental Facility, Eleuthera", the creation of the base dates back to November of 1950.    Eleuthera Auxilliary Air Force Base (AAFB) began operations in September of 1957, and was used for long-range monitoring of rocket and guided missile launches, controlled targets, drones, satellites, and lunar probes for the Air Force, Army, and Navy.  By late 1970, the decision had been made to close the facility.  The base was officially decommissioned on March 31, 1980 after the United States government was unable to secure favorable lease renewal terms from the Bahamian government for the land on which the base is located.  The facilities and equipment left behind largely went to waste, rusting silently away as the years went by, however the beachfront is one of the most spectacular on Eleuthera, and is a great place to enjoy late afternoon cocktails (BYOB) as the sun sets behind the dunes.

34Ocean Hole (Rock Sound)

Long: -76.155552
Lat: 24.864100

This massive ocean hole is one of Eleuthera's most famous landmarks.  The hole is home to a school of grouper and gray snapper which were stocked many years ago by local fishermen.   The legendary "bottomless" part of the Ocean Hole has been verified by tracking dye to be a very deep tunnel to the ocean (as with most ocean holes on Eleuthera, sufficiently deep that no ocean fish pass under to the ocean hole).   Once in Rock Sound, just follow the signs to visit the "Legendary Ocean Hole".

35The Cathedral

Lat: 24.857695

This small but impressive cave is located behind the ocean hole across the Queen's Highway from the African Methodist Church just south of Rock Sound.  The short rock-lined trail to the cave goes around the left (south) side of the ocean hole, then continues beyond it to a slanted wooden ladder.  The cave itself is fairly short, but the roots cascading down from the trees on top of the cave, along with the majestic rays of light cast through the ceiling on a sunny day are quite breathtaking

36Preacher's Cave

Long: -76.695824
Lat: 25.557446

This historic cave was the home of the first European settlers in the Bahamas whose ship was wrecked on the nearby Devil's Backbone reef in 1640.  The cave was also used as a home and a burial ground for some of the early Lucayans, with charcoal remnants from fire pits found in Preacher's Cave radiocarbon-dated back to as early as the 8th century AD, and as late as 1430 - 1650 AD thus establishing a long period of usage.

37Hatchet Bay Cave

show on map
Long: -76.525414
Lat: 25.367842

Hatchet Bay Cave is the most extensive cave system discovered on Eleuthera thus far. It was first described in the November 1874 edition of Harper's Monthly magazine as "a cave extending 1100 feet under-ground enriched by stalactites of a brilliant brown hue. It is really worth visiting."  The cave spans at least three levels and at least two exits separated by 1/5 mile on the surface.  The cave is home to hundreds of what appear to be leaf-nosed bats.  The bats are generally more active after sunset, so if you're not a fan of bats, mid-day is probably the best time to explore. Each visitor to this cave should have a primary flashlight, along with a backup flashligh

(aka Pink Sand Beach)

Harbour Island has a beautiful beach about 2.4 miles long, lots of fine sand and they say pink. But unlike most of the beaches on the mainland Eleuthera, there are people on those beaches. Not like in Miami or Ft. Lauderdale, but more than on the beaches south. The sand at French Leave beach is as pink as Harbour Island.

Not so much a beach as a place to hang out in pools of water that fill up at high tide. Worth the visit especially if you are going to see the Glass Window Bridge. Note: the glass window part from which the bridge got its name, only looks like a glass window if you are on a boat out away from the bridge itself.

65Surfers Beach

Yes this is where all the surfers hang out and the best beach for surfing on Eleuthera. You know surfers are a rugged bunch, and so is the road from the Queen’s Highway to the beach. It is a nice beach and worth the trek if you are a rugged person.

66James Point Beach

Lat: 25.347668

We call this one the sea fan beach, because there are always lots of sea fans washed up on the horse shoe shaped beach. Sand face is steep and you can get a nice work out walking on the .4 mile long beach. Once you get to the south side, if you cross the rocks there is a small horse shoe opening in the rocks which when there are large waves on the Atlantic will produce some dramatic effects with the water crashing in and coming straight up. The road in is not in good shape so take it slow.

(aka Cocodimama Beach)

Just a little north of the Old Navy Base entrance, turn at the Cocodimama sign. This is a shallow beach, as are most on the Caribbean side (West) of Eleuthera. Sand is fine and firm. This is a great place to take the young kids, plenty of shallow water to run and play in, looking for shells and sand dollars. Keep in mind it the sand dollar is a dark tan or brown color, it is still alive; if white it is dead. Excellent place to teach the kids to snorkel. The beach is about .8 miles long.

68Sky Beach

The beach at the Sky Beach development is beautiful and not crowded. Plenty of fine sand, as do most of the beaches on the Atlantic side. Access through the Sky Beach development, park by the pool and restaurant. After or before your walk you can enjoy some refreshments at the restaurant bar area, or from the swim up bar in the infinity pool.

69Twin Coves

Located about 0.7 miles north of French Leave Beach (from the north end), nice fine sand. The southern cove is about 0.2 miles long. There is a small rock island and the sand bar from the rock island to the shoreline forms the adjacent border of the two coves. Some nice snorkeling around the rock island. Access from Office General on the Queen’s highway, at the tee intersection of Banks road turn right, a short distance there is a sand road, park there and walk in.

This is a lovely totally secluded beach which you can access through the Northside Inn, run by Rose. The Northside Inn has a small restaurant and bar, a great place to go on the beach and get something to eat before or after. Call ahead to make sure she is open.

72Winding Bay Beach

Long: -76.147316
Lat: 24.963241

There are two beaches at Winding Bay, one on the north side of the bay and well protected from the waves. The road in is a “single lane” road through the bush. At the end of the road is an area where sand is removed and hauled out by dump trucks. So we suggest you go slow and keep your windows down just in case the dump truck is headed in the opposite direction you are. Crossing over the sand collection area will put you on a nice long beach, good for shelling and some decent reefs for snorkeling.
