The Island of Eleuthera is very inviting. It has the quaint settlements of Harbour Island (with its unique pink sandy beaches) and Spanish Wells.
While not busy serving as a backdrop to Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit models, the illustrious island of Eleuthera is busy serving up pink-ish beaches that will make your heart flutter, white picket fences that will tickle your fancy, blooming hibiscus flowers for your beloved one, and luscious super-sweet pineapples that will make your taste buds water (when in season of course).
Eleuthera has been a romantic hideaway for the British Royal Family for many years. This 110 mile long island is where HRH Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana spent a holiday in 1982 and where Prince Edward proposed to Sophie in 1999.
According to historical lore, the original settlers called it Eleuthera, after the Greek word for freedom. After you visit there you will know why.
