Welcome to this amazing island grouping we call The Eleutheras – home, second home, safe harbour, surf spot, festival ground, beach haven or holiday choice – Eleuthera, Harbour island & Spanish Wells. Islands that spark minds to ponder questions, such as, ‘Why are these boulders up here?’ (The Cow and Bull), ‘What will these remains tell us?’ (Preacher’s Cave), ‘Where does this water come from?’ (Ocean Hole)…
When the Atlantic roars, Eleuthera nestles the smaller islands and barriers the larger archipelago’s capital. Days like those in March of 2018, the awesome Glass Window Bridge and surrounding areas, burst into an orchestra of towering waves, too dangerous to cross, but then, there are the other days, when tranquil ocean and sky blues bombard the senses with optical nirvana.
Welcome to The Eleutheras and to this new issue of The Eleutheran Magazine, chronicling the wonderful life of our Bahamas and its life-tempered pulse.
Nature’s flair, Island’s creativity, opportunity…. It’s an island grouping where the more things stay the same, the more beautiful are the subtle changes.
