Less than 4 inches of rainfall during most months, but the rainy season arrives in late summer and stays through fall.

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.

Things to Do

When you visit Eleuthera, the top item on your list should be doing absolutely nothing. With white and pink sand beaches, views of the sea on all sides, and a leisurely lifestyle, you're bound to want to relax.

Finding a quiet spot to yourself is easy on Eleuthera, especially with so many beaches to choose from. 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.

If you're seeking adventure, you'll find plenty of water sports and diving off the coast of Eleuthera. Explore the stunning reefs just offshore and go scuba diving or shark diving with the experts at Ocean Fox Cotton Bay. If fishing, turtle chasing, or spearfishing is more your speed, plan a day with Fishbone Tours and throw in a beach trip to explore more uncharted territory.

Participate in pineapple-themed sports, check out the pineapple cooking contest, cheer on the pineapple eating contest, and try a pineapple beverage or two at this multi-day party in Gregory Town.
