About Eleuthera:

Eleuthera is an island in the Bahamas measuring approximately 110 miles long and just a mile wide in some areas.

Given that it faces 2 different seas, the Caribbean and the Pacific, Eleuthera offers a wealth of superb beaches ranging from vast stretches of pink sand to small, sheltered coves. Add a slow-paced lifestyle to the mix and you have one of the most relaxing island destinations in the world.

For more energetic activities, Eleuthera has some incredible diving spots, too, including an enormous coral reef called ‘Devil’s Backbone’, so it’s no wonder it was recently named as ‘the best island in the Caribbean’ by 'Travel & Leisure' magazine.

As a long, slender stretch of land, Eleuthera has numerous ports spread along its coastline, with numerous sailings provided to the Bahamian capital of Nassau on New Providence to the west.

About New Providence:

New Providence is an island in the Bahamas, home to around seventy percent of the country's population who primarily reside in the vibrant capital, Nassau.

Small, yet full of energy, New Providence is wonderfully chaotic, allowing your senses not a moment’s peace. But that’s all to be expected from an island once roamed by pirates and, albeit fictitiously, James Bond. Bustling markets and festivities on stunning beaches are commonplace, but there are plenty of options for those who need some downtime; fascinating galleries and historic sites can be found all over Nassau. The pirate museum offers an insight into the island’s swashbuckling history, whilst the enormous, ruinous Fort Charlotte affords lovely hilltop views and makes a brilliant day trip for families.

Given the capital’s location in the heart of the Bahamas, New Providence is one of the nation’s travel hubs, with numerous ferries docking in Nassau all week from a number of Bahamian islands.
