Not for everyone

This is my second time to Eleuthera, but this time I'm married. The outer islands aren't for everyone. This trip we came from Long Island, Bahamas which is less populated than Eleuthera. Eleuthera has beautiful beaches and clear aquamarine colored water but it's very remote. The Atlantic side was very windy and choppy since we stayed in the winter. The Caribbean side was calm but buggy. That is our biggest pet peev about the Bahamas. The no-see-ums are horrible! My husband had around 100 bites on his body which made him irritable and hate the Bahamas. The Atlantic side is better in the bug arena but not calm like the Caribbean side. It's a trade off.

There isn't much healthy food on the island except for the farm in Palmetto Point where you can buy organic veggies and more (see my tips page for more info).

All in all, if you are looking for remoteness, beautiful beaches and romance, Eleuthra is a pretty good choice.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful warm beaches
  • Cons:No-see-um bugs!!!, lot of fried and unhealthy food
  • In a nutshell:Bahamas- beautiful but not for everybody.
