Warm weather, natural beauty, good shopping deals and a wide range of activities. Most travellers visit the Bahamas to enjoy the thrills and comfort of the major resorts with their local activities. Nature lovers love to explore the beautiful reefs and nature reserves.
For most visitors, the number one attraction in the Bahamas is the beach. There is something really special in the soft, powdery, white limestone sand found here, and the shallow shores and kaleidoscope of blues that connect the sea and the sky in a seamless horizon.
Known as a maritime playground for sun-hungry Americans, this magnificent chain of subtropical islands is much more than a cruise ship stopover. Spread between the depths of the North Atlantic and the east coast of Florida, the Bahamas includes more than 700 islands and 2400 creeks, most of them uninhabited, all lined with spectacular corals and ocean trenches without a probe. From the sandstone and bustle of Nassau to the vast mangroves of Andros, there is an amazing array of beaches, reefs, forests and historic cities to discover, all within an hour’s flight.
Eleuthera is the fourth most populated island in the Bahamas, with about 11,000 inhabitants. Most of those who live here fish for bonuses or cultivate the hilly acres of pineapple plantations. Eleuthera is an island of relaxed sophistication, home to remote communities, well-developed seaside resorts, rocky cliffs, low-lying wetlands and massive coral reefs that create beautiful scenery. Harbour Island, on the other hand, was once the capital of the Bahamas. It also offers lush tropical greenery and magical pink sandy beaches.
On the quiet shores of Eleuthera is an unspoilt enclave surrounded by palm trees, white sand coves and stylish seaside resorts. The intimate 57-room resort offers a selection of elegant seaside villas, embraced by endless turquoise waters. The cove has private white sandy beaches, a fitness centre, a spa, an outdoor bar with sunset and a gourmet restaurant inspired by the island’s aquatic benefits. Whether it’s snorkeling, windsurfing, kayaking or more relaxed activities such as relaxing by the panoramic overflow pool, guests have a host of options at their fingertips.
The Cove offers an irresistible cuisine inspired by the region. Taking full advantage of its location facing the ocean, the restaurant offers sustainable products and vegetables directly from the garden. The meat is supplied by local and organic farmers and fishermen.
Hatchet Bay Cave is an expansive cave with more than three levels of rock formations and stalactites, Sweetings Pond is recognized as a site of particular ecological value, as it is home to a large number of sea horses and starfish.
Take a kayak and paddle for the famous Current Cut. Cross the grouper, hogfish, giant snapper and nurse sharks along the natural channel between Eleuthera and your walk. You may even encounter spotted eagle rays very close up.
