“Ordinary”… Definitely not something we could call the “Out Islands of the Bahamas”…With so many beautiful, tropical serene islands to choose from, how do you pick one? You don’t…just keep coming back to experience them all.
The Island of Eleuthera is just a short 70-minute flight from Orlando using a Pilatus PC12 Turboprop provided by a private charter operator that flies from ORL. Private air travel allows for convenience and ease when traveling to these beautiful small islands.
No TSA hassles, valet parking as you drive right up to the airplane, easy boarding and departure. Once you’ve arrived in the Bahamas, customs is quick and your bags are handled by private first class service. Within minutes of landing, you are on your way to your resort destination.
Eleuthera boasts of blue water, beautiful resorts and uncrowded, secluded beaches. If it’s peacefulness, tropical breezes and history you long for, then head to Eleuthera.
The island is divided into two regions, North Eleuthera and South Eleuthera.
North Eleuthera has a main airport for commercial arrival but also hosts private aircraft. Some visitors land here and take a short taxi ride to the marina, where they embark on a 17-minute ferry ride to Harbour Island, sometimes called Martha’s Vineyard of the Bahamas. Quaint B/B’s, little shops, great food, and music are what you can find on Harbour Island. Golf carts and bikes are a great form of transportation as you sightsee and sample local flavor.
Governor’s Harbour at the south end of the island is full of history, first class resort style accommodations, and local scenery. It’s a sight not to be missed. The island’s enduring popularity is founded on its tropical greenery stretching out to meet the warm, pink-hued sand beaches it is famous for. Resorts and the warm hospitality housed in the quaint New England architecture of the island’s history add to nature’s palette. The rows of century-old trees border narrow, flower-lined streets should not be missed…
The small town is named for its peaceful harbor; its evening sunsets are majestic and local fisherman clean fresh catch there every day at 3 pm. The locals are welcoming and after a few days in Governor’s Harbour, you’ll feel like a local – that is the essence of Eleuthera.
You will become friendly with the folks at da Perk Coffee Shop, the Beach House Restaurant, Governor’s Harbour Bakery, and Ronnie’s Bar. And when you want to get away… you can escape it all and spend the day at your favorite deserted world-class beach. Literally. On Eleuthera, it’s rare to see anyone else on the beach.
Come find your own stunning stretch of pink sand and turquoise water, and you’ll experience firsthand what makes this island so exceptional.
