Eleuthera Beach, Bahamas, Yacht charter

Eleuthera Beach

Though Eleuthera is just one stop on your private luxury yacht cruise through the Bahamas, it’s worth spending some time to explore. This scenic paradise island has something for everyone, whether relaxing on one of its 160-plus beaches or renting a 4×4 vehicle for an adventurous trip to see some of the island’s sinkholes, caves, or bathing ponds. 

Though it’s impossible to cover all of Eleuthera’s majestic beauty and exciting attractions in one article, the following recommendations will help with how to  enjoy this one-of-a-kind place. 

Pick Your Favorite Beach

There are so many shores to choose from up and down the 100-mile island’s length that finding the perfect spot to come ashore and pour a cocktail is a tall order. Stick to the island’s west side if you prefer calm waters ideal for swimming and snorkeling. The east side is ideal for surfing and playing in the rough waves rolling in from the Atlantic Ocean. 

As you may guess from the name, check out Surfer’s Beach if surfing is your game. Two of the better locations include Gaulding Beach and Ten Bay Beach. If you have access to a 4×4 vehicle and are up for an adventure, drive out to Lighthouse Beach and see why this area is renowned as a hidden gem.

Explore Caves And Sinkholes

In addition to its numerous beaches, Eleuthera also features plenty of caves, sinkholes, and ponds. Some of these are well-known to tourists, but others you may stumble upon while you’re out and about. 

Enjoy a relaxing soak in the Queen’s Baths on the east side of the island. These tidal pools continually refresh as waves from the Atlantic Ocean splash into eroded sections of rock and then become warmed by the sun. 

If you are the adventurous type, jump right into the large blue sinkhole known as the Sapphire Blue Hole in the northern section of Eleuthera. It’s a perfect spot for scenic photos, too, so bring the whole group along to make some lasting memories. 

Or, plan a pleasant afternoon at Preacher’s Cave. This cave became both a home and a place of worship for English Puritans who, in the 1600’s, shipwrecked on the Devil’s Backbone Reef and found safety in the cave’s shelter. Today, it’s an interesting historical site with a nearby beach and picnic tables.

Don’t Miss These Must-See Attractions

There are only a few places in the world regarded as truly one-of-a-kind. Eleuthera happens to be home to at least two of them. 

Cathedral Cave is marvelous and a fascinating place to explore—unless you have arachnophobia. Gnarled roots from the trees above and enormous, thick spiderwebs cover the cave’s ceiling, making visitors feel as if they’re on a movie set. 

The other truly unique experience on Eleuthera comes from visiting the Glass Window, where the Atlantic Ocean and the Bight of Eleuthera are separated by just 30 feet of narrow road. 

Have your captain drop anchor and come ashore to hike to maximize the experience of the spectacular view of deep blue waters on one side and bright, shimmering turquoise on the other, while visiting Eleuthera on a crewed yacht charter.

Andros Island, An Untouched Paradise for Your Next Yacht Charter Destination

The Island of Andros, Bahamas

The Island of Andros

Adventure and beauty are calling your name on the island of Andros—an island located in the Bahamas. This nearly untouched island is the largest of the Bahamas, at roughly 100 miles long. It is easily accessed by private yacht charter. The island is stunning, as most of it is uninhabited. There are many stretches of unspoiled land on the island, including free-flowing creeks, deserted beaches, and exotic wildlife. A trip to Andros Island offers a rare opportunity to become connected to nature in a way that you probably haven’t done before. 

Snorkeling in the Bahamas

There is no shortage of mystery and wonder that surrounds Andros as well. There is believed to be an underwater 75-foot monster, Lusca, who dwells in the ocean waters. There’s Morgan’s Bluff—the presumed location of a hidden buried treasure from one of the Caribbean’s most feared pirates, Sir Henry Morgan. Perhaps one of the most beautiful wonders of the island though available for snorkeling from your private charter yacht, is the Andros Barrier Reef—the third largest living organism on the planet. Because this island is almost completely uninhabited, this 190-mile reef is in pristine condition with an abundance of fish, whales, and coral for you to explore.

The Elusive Bonefish

For the fisherman looking for great sport, bonefishing is at its finest in the saltwater flats around Andros Island, considered a world class bonefishing destination. From your anchored charter yacht, head out with a local bonefishing guide who will supply a flat bottomed boat, and all of the gear needed to stalk this elusive fish.
