Eleuthera’s a long, thin island – 110 miles long but, at its widest, only 2 miles across. It’s blessed with an abundance of spectacular beaches and perpetuatal summer – winter highs are in the mid 70’s, summer highs in the mid to upper 80’s.
Generally, Eleuthera is 3-4 degrees cooler than Florida, with constant sea breezes. Eleuthera is unusual in that it is relatively hilly, reaching an elevation of 100 feet, much more than most of the other Bahamian islands.
With a population of about 8,000, Eleuthera, unlike Nassau, does not have “big city” feel. Bahamians are known to be some of the warmest and most friendly anywhere. Governor’s Harbour, the capital, is located at the mid-point of the island and has small town charm and is a great jumping off point for exploring both north and south Eleuthera. The island is a nature lovers paradise.
