Eleuthera, the longest island in The Bahamas, is an island of contrasts. It is just over one mile wide at most places but is 110 miles long with magnificent pink-white beaches, sheltered coves, breath-taking bluffs and
cliffs and fine harbours. Its cliffs are in the north where the deep blue colour of the Atlantic Ocean can be seen on one side, while the calmer turquoise Caribbean Sea is in clear view on the other. In the centre of the island is the hilly farming area, famous for pineapples and tomatoes. In the south, the island is green and flatter with quaint villages. Governor’s Harbour, the major settlement on mainland Eleuthera, is one of the oldest settlements in The Bahamas.
Hailed the “Island of Freedom,” the Eleutheran Adventurers travelled to Eleuthera and founded what was probably the first democracy in the western world.
