Our Honeymoon in Eleuthera
by L. Barrows
(Vernon, CT USA)
I read about this wonderful island Eleuthera in our local paper, and told my soon to be husband, this is the place for us. We don't like crowds, we don't shop too much, but we do like privacy.
We stayed on Ten Bay, but loved Club Med beach. Went there every day and there was maybe a handful of people sharing this beautiful pink sand beach with us.
I checked the weather before we left Connecticut USA, and it stated it would be cloudy in Eleuthera. Every day approx. at 1pm, a little white cloud would pass above us. Yup, I can take this cloudy weather any day!
The water was wonderful and warm, and all the Eleutheran's were just as warm and hospitable to us. We ate one evening at Sunset Inn and the owner Lionel found out we were on our honeymoon, so he gave us a bottle of wine to take with us.
We were always buying gas for our rental car at the Esso station in Palmetto Point right on the main drag. The owner's wife found out we were on our honeymoon. The next day, she made us a coconut cake, which was so yummy.
We did a lot of sightseeing thru the whole island, but loved eating at Bertha's Go Go Ribs in Tarpum Bay!
We traveled the whole island in 2 days, but can't really pick just one place that was our favorite! Everywhere we went, was perfect! In Governor's Harbour, we met the police chief. What a real nice man!
That was 5 years ago and still it feels like we were just there. I miss this island so much and can't wait to go back!
