This is a holiday location perfect for those wishing to 'get away from it all'. Once visited, never forgotten. The peace and quiet of a desert island, yet 'civilisation', with all its amenities, just around the corner. Eleuthera itself is one of the outlying 'family islands' of the Bahamas, that are characterised by unspoilt, uncrowded beaches with pink and white sand and turquoise waters, and a leisurely pace of life guaranteed to be an antidote to the stresses of modern living.
