The island of Eleuthera is little known to the rest of the world.

The island boasts impeccable beaches, picturesque sunsets and undisturbed wildlife, all contributing factors in being named the “Best Secret Island on Earth” by Travel + Leisure. Despite all that it has to offer, Eleuthera is only about one mile wide and 110 miles long.

The topography of the island varies from wide open sand beaches to large outcrops of coral reefs. The eastern side of the island faces the Atlantic Ocean, while the western side faces the Caribbean Sea, one of the two Bahama Banks. No matter where you are sightseeing on the island, you are sure to be surrounded by breathtaking views.

Eleuthera was first inhabited in the 1500s by the Lucayan Indians, who called the island Segatoo. After the Lucayan population came the Spanish explorers. The island was then uninhabited until 1648, when it was settled by a group of Puritan adventurers in search of religious freedom. They aptly renamed the island Eleutheria, which is Greek for freedom, and eventually changed to Eleuthera, meaning free. Their settlement was the first in the Bahamas, thus making Eleuthera the original birthplace of the country.

Home to the annual Pineapple Festival in June, Eleuthera has been celebrating the tradition of pineapple farming since 1988, honoring pineapple farmers for their commitment to their community. This event takes place in the heart of Gregory Town, where the pineapple is most abundant.
