Eleuthera, Bahamas Travel Guide

Eleuthera definitely isn't for everyone. It is for those who like getting off the beaten path, spending all day ALONE on amazing beaches, and enjoying island time. If you are looking for the royal treatment, amazing food, and hopping nightlife, Harbour Island or Nassau would be a much better choice for you. Eleuthera is also one of the best bonefishing locations in the world.
