Less than 4 inches of rainfall during most months, but the rainy season arrives in late summer and stays through fall. Eleuthera typically receives 9 inches of rain in October, which could dampen even the most well-planned vacation.

To fly, book a flight to Governor's Harbour International Airport, North Eleuthera International Airport, or Rock Sound International Airport. If you're traveling from nearby Nassau, hop on the daily ferry for a high-speed trip to Eleuthera.
Once you arrive on the island, plan to take a taxi or rent a car to drive between Eleuthera vacation homes and the island's top attractions. If you opt to drive, keep in mind that Eleuthera has just one primary road with no traffic lights that connects the island's north end to the south end.

On the island's southern end, don't miss Lighthouse Beach, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea. This beach boasts miles of rose-colored sand and has plenty of space to soak up some sun, go shelling, and take a dip in the sea. On the north side of the island, be sure to visit Ben Bay Beach, a protected harbor that offers a tranquil destination for families and couples alike.
