17 Oct Explore Southern Eleuthera for an Authentic Bahamian Experience
Driving south from Governor Harbour Airport along Queen’s Highway the road opens to turquoise and deep blue ocean views to the East driving through small towns and spotted colorful homes. This route also calls for stopping to find unexplored beaches, blue holes, and off-road trails if you have the vehicle for it.
Windemere Island has one entrance via a bridge with guard house to allow the utmost privacy for those who own homes or choose a secluded home rental. This island was known for British Royalty visiting such as Prince Charles and Princess Diana on their honeymoon, celebrity weddings for Mariah Carey, and other well-known personalities. Our friends at Ocean Daze have a spectacular home rental offering direct access to both the beach with pink sand beaches and sound to the west.
Further south, new construction has been in place at Jack’s Bay. Currently lots are available for purchase and development while 10 of the 18-hole golf course designed by Tiger Woods is open. The property is quite impressive with one of the most beautiful coves on the island. With floor plans ranging from 2100 to 5000 square feet, this will soon be a highly sought-after destination. Flights into Rock Sound Airport or by seaplane make this convenient for any type of getaway.
To the southernmost point on the island Queen’s Highway forks. To the left allows access to both Princess Cay owned by Princess Cruise Lines and the recently announced Disney Cruise property at Lighthouse Beach. Turning right offers direct access to Island School and Cape Eleuthera Resort and Marina. Cape Eleuthera offers the most diverse and rich fishing locations in The Bahamas. With brand new single room cottages, villas, and a superb restaurant on site Cape Eleuthera continues to receive high remarks from their guests. With a bit of work, we may see the seaplane ramp return to service for future flights.
