1. Spectacular Beaches

Most but not all of the powdery pink-sand beaches and rental villas are...

On the right side of Eleuthera, where the former British colonials used to build their homes.


  • Governor's Harbour visible on the satellite photo above.
  • North Palmetto Point five miles south of Governor's - not on the satellite photo - with quite a number of rental villas.
  • Double Bay just south of Palmetto Point. A long beach, ideal for walking.
  • Windermere Island - on the satellite picture - further south, where Prince Charles of England and Diana used to vacation.
  • Winding Bay north of Rock Sound, shown on the satellite photo.

These areas are all on the breezier right side of Eleuthera where you'll be able to enjoy long, powdery pink-sand beaches. We just love them.

On the left side of Eleuthera - the shallower one - take a look at these two sandy beaches...

  • Ten Bay south of Governor's Harbour. A very pretty beach, good for snorkeling, kayaking and fishing, too!
  • You will find lower priced rentals at Rainbow Bay in northern Central Eleuthera. Its sandy beach is relatively short. But as the island is particularly narrow at Rainbow, you can get to the Atlantic beaches on the right side in no time. However those beaches are not quite as attractive as the ones south of Governor's Harbour airport.

Please note this... Several rental homes on the left side of Eleuthera - the Caribbean side - have rocky shore lines.

2. Short Introduction

You'll probably want to take a good look at weather & climate in the Bahamas first.

Now back to rentals and beaches...

There are only a few hotels on Eleuthera. Instead you will find quite a number of vacation homes for rent on or near deserted, pristine beaches. The reason?...

These vacation homes are all in hand-picked locations. You'll be enjoying the very advantages home owners were seeking for themselves.

Central Eleuthera - the area between Governor's Harbour and Palmetto Point - has the widest choice of Eleuthera vacation rentals.

In Governor's Harbour you will find several stores, banks and quite a number of restaurants. And if you'd like to have coffee with winter residents, go to Haynes Library on Tuesday mornings.

Eleuthera is safe to explore. The locals are very friendly and the crime rate is low. It is sparsely populated, has lots of empty space and offers tranquility, crystal clear turquoise waters and pure air.

4. Other Beach House Rentals


All in all -- Eleuthera is still untouched by mass tourism. It's called a Family Island because people know each other.

You will feel and enjoy that family atmosphere, too, once you have found one of the many Eleuthera vacation rentals.
