Yes, here you can print out your Eleuthera map...
But it may be more convenient to have a printed map as you explore the island.
That map comes in two sheets, printed blue-on-beige on either side. In other words, Eleuthera is shown in four sections.
The scale of this map is about 1:77'000, meaning that one inch on the map is equivalent to 1.2 miles on the island.
Here is the North Eleuthera map section...

Do you really want to explore the island? Well then, this is your Eleuthera map. It covers all of the island on eleven sheets.
Unfortunately they are not easy to get because they are only available from the Lands & Surveys Department in Nassau. Call *Surveys & Mapping*, 1-242-322-2328.
Be prepared that the Government Office won't send you the maps. If you are very lucky, you can get your eleven Eleuthera maps by visiting the offices in person.
If you know what area of Eleuthera you are particularly interested in, write to the Web site owner.
Click on the button Comments & FAQs. It's on the upper left side of this page. Go to the bottom of that page and let the site owner know what parts of the map you would need. He'll be able to send it to you as a .jpg-file, i.e. a digital photo.
When you're viewing the enlarged map, please note that Colebrook Town is Governor's Harbour.
Cupid's Cay connected to Governor's is forming the harbour where boaters anchor. The old mail boat and the new fast ferry to Nassau are mooring there too.
Across from the harbour, on the upper right side, you see a long and wide beach, called Club Med beach. It is one of Eleuthera's widest and prettiest beaches and has a public access path.
