At Four Pointes Restaurant (Rock Sound) with Owner Devaughn

A must-go-to is Four Points restaurant in Rock Sound. They just opened in the summer of 2009. Four Points has the best view of Exuma Sound and an awesome group cooking. We had the fish basket and the best beer ever "SANDS".

The young owners name is Devaughn. Their food is AWESOME and you have satellite T.V. - huge plasma. They accommodate your request to view the show of your liking. We went back twice for drinks and appetizers while watching the Miami Dolphins play that week.

My husband and I first visited Eleuthera island in the Bahamas in August of 2008. We stayed in Palmetto Point, Romantic Bungalow, by the Unique Village restaurant. Awesome conch fritters!

We had an amazing seven days of snorkeling the entire island from North Eleuthera to Tarpum Bay.

The Fish Fry on Fridays nights is an event you cannot miss in Governor's harbor, it is so much fun and the food is excellent. There is so much to say about this beautiful island.

In August of 2009 we went back and stayed in Senga Na Lenga in Winding Bay, a very beautiful new home which even exceeded our first trip.

We once again traveled all over the island and found this new amazing place called Sky Beach Club's Bistro restaurant, a must-see when you travel. If you have brunch or have a drink or two you can swim in their infinity pool.


fish and lobster buying in Tarpum Bay is the best.

One of my favorite beaches in Rainbow Beach and the snorkeling is amazing as well.

We also loved Navy beach, it is so tranquil and there is amazing snorkeling there too.

I believe our favorite is Ten Bay beach. It is nestled amongst some side shaded trees and the snorkeling there is also amazing.

A must-do is travel the entire island and go in through the little narrow roads that appear to go no where but where you end up is heaven all around whether on the Atlantic or Bay side... This is how we found a lot of the great beaches.

We also met a wonderful local called Ernestine, she lives about 2 houses from Rock Sound Airport. We went with her and her grand daughter Shalom to fish. Since then she has been to South Florida and we have invited her over to our home.

The locals from Eleuthera are the best. Please stop by and say hello to Ernestine. She is the 2nd house on the left once you pass Rock Sound airport. Ernestine will go to your rental and cook a really nice meal for you and take you around the island.

There is so much to say about beautiful Eleuthera I could write a book.

We are planning our 3rd trip this summer and taking our 4 teenage kids with us. Hope you enjoy your stay as we did.

Four Points Restaurant vs. Shantzii's in Tarpum Bay
by: Anonymous

Hi all, Well I visit Eleuthera twice a year. I live in the North Palmetto Point area and I always consider it a special treat to drive further South; stopping in Rock Sound to eat at my favorite restaurant on the Island. However to my surprise, I immediately noticed a complete change in the atmosphere, family staff and food. A little taken aback, I sat and ate lunch anyway. The food was good and the scenic views were still incredible. But I was left still yearning for the real Bahamian cooking of chef Theola and her son, Devaughn - I did not get my big family hug when I left. This always made my family feel so special and at home.

Miraculously, on my way back to Palmetto Point we stopped in at a quaint roadside restaurant named Shantzii's in Tarpum Bay. It advertises for fresh conch salad. As I walked in, I was startled by a familiar voice "Donna!". It was Cleomi. Devaughn ran and hugged me and the kids. We were right back at home. We stayed and ate lobster fritters and caught up for an hour and a half. As usual Theola's cooking was AMAZING!

So if your ever in Tarpum Bay on Queen's Highway visit Shantzii's seafood Restaurant and Sports Bar. It's very quaint, colorful and truly native.

Rock Sound Restaurant On Sandy Beach
by: Anonymous

Hello Annie,

Whenever Gerda and I go to Rock Sound, we have lunch at the Four Points restaurant. Why?...

It's simply the most enjoyable eatery in South Eleuthera. The service is very friendly, the food excellent and the chairs are really comfortable.

What we like best - apart from the food - is the beautiful view of the Caribbean sea and the powdery sandy beach with the coconut trees.

I also like the large tiki bar next to the restaurant. It's placed on stilts in the water. Sometimes we eat our lunch out there which gives that extra vacation feeling.

Thanks for your enthusiastic comment about your Eleuthera vacation. I'm sure you'll be back sooner or later ;-)

Dieter (& Gerda) of...
