CENTRAL

The Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve-The first national park of Eleuthera. A 25-acre sanctuary for 34 species of birds and 71 species of indigenous plants. Offering a mile long trail and lookout tower to the Atlantic Sea.

French Leave Beach– This beach is 1-½ miles long with pink sand.

The Haynes Library– A lovely historic building housing the public library. Internet services are available for a donation.

Anchor Bay Fish Fry– Every Friday night. Enjoy a night of dancing in the street, good food and lots to drink.

Edwin’s Turtle Lake Marine Reserve– Currently open by reservation only or by chance. 242-422-9109 or (US) 954-435-8276 This is a wonderful lake just outside (S) of Governor’s Harbour where you can rent a boat, paddle board and see the turtles.

The Big Tree– Located in Palmetto Point, this huge tree is an incredible sight to see. I believe it is called a Silk Cotton Wood Tree.

Ten Bay Beach– This is an excellent beach for small children as it is very shallow for some distance. Receivers Beach, just south of the airport is very similar.

SOUTH

Ocean Hole– Located in Rock Sound- this beautiful lake rises and falls with the tides, and is claimed to be bottomless. Bring some bread and feed the many tropical fish and sometimes turtles that will come to greet you.

Cape Eleuthera– Cottages, Marina and public beaches. A great place for snorkeling. Dive operators can take you to 26 dive sights, plus a restaurant.

Bannerman Town– Where the Cruise ships stop.

Lighthouse Point– This is the furthest tip of Eleuthera- and the most beautiful beach. You will need a Jeep type vehicle, something with some clearance to get there. Plan on spending the day, so pack a picnic lunch and bring plenty to drink. Great snorkeling, walking and swimming.
