Spanish Wells Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 4 photos

Spanish Wells is located on St George's Island which is 1 mile west of North Eleuthera which is 60 miles east of Nassau. It can be easily reached by taking the Bahamas fast ferry from Nassau which stops here en-route to Dunmore Town on Harbour Island.

Spanish Wells is named after the 16th century Spanish galleons that once drew water here before attempting to return home across the Atlantic Ocean. The village dates back to the Eleutheran Adventurers and it's descendants are true Europeans - blonde-haired and blue-eyed. The island is famous for it's lobsters which are sent to Florida, Nassau and Freeport which is how the village survives economically. I took the fast ferry here on my way to Harbour Island but didn't stop here to look around but it looks very peaceful and orderly.
