Eleuthera Is, Bahamas

Eleuthera Island is an island in The Bahamas, lying 50 miles (80 km) east of Nassau. It is long and thin—110 miles (180 km) long and in places little more than 1 mile (1,600 m) wide. The magnificent glass window bridge to the north of the island offers spectacular views of the deep blue Atlantic on one side, and the turquoise Caribbean Sea on the other.

Eleuthera attracts people who wish to explore its terrain, either by bicycle or car, and see nature in its unspoilt state. Visitors can visit the island's scattered settlements, grottos and hidden caves, which combine to create Eleuthera's remote and laid-back ambiance. Together with Harbour Island, Eleuthera charms travellers with its colonial villages and pineapple plantations.
