About Harbour Island Eleuthera
When we think of rocky bluffs, modern resorts, massive coral reefs, and low-lying wetlands in the Bahamas, only Eleuthera Island crosses our minds. The 2-mile-wide island is not only known to have some of the world’s best dive sites, but it also offers the authentic tropical feel of the Bahamas.
Interesting History and Culture

- It was the first permanent settlement in the Bahamas, thanks to the Eleutheran Adventurers from Bermuda who discovered it while on their pursuit for religious freedom.
- Most residents have a West African origin. Their ancestors were brought in to work in American cotton plantations.
- Junkanoo is one of the most popular cultural festivals attracting thousands of people dressed in colorful costumes and dancing in the street to traditional Bahamian music.

Fun Things to Do in Harbour Island, Eleuthera, Bahamas
The Glass Window Bridge
Pink Sand Beach, Harbour Island
Stretching for just over 3 miles, Pink Sand Beach boasts of a powder-pink landscape that offers the perfect ambiance for a walk on the beach. Even better, the 50 to 100-feet-wide beach has cool sand that allows you to walk barefoot, making you one with nature.
The outlying reefs provide shallow and relatively calm water, which makes swimming and snorkeling safe, easy, and fun. If you’re on a honeymoon, you may want to try out the popular horseback riding along the beach.
Located 10 miles North of Eleuthera airport, the Preacher Cave is known to have provided shelter to the Eleutheran Adventurers after their shipwreck on the Devil’s Backbone.
Besides the Preacher Cave, Eleuthera hosts several other thrilling caves (such as Hatchet Bay Cave, Smuggler’s Cave, and Spider Cave) that enthusiasts will find breathtaking.
