A sort of Bahamian Plymouth Rock, Eleuthera Island was the first permanent settlement in The Bahamas, founded in 1648. A search for religious freedom drew the Eleutherian Adventurers from Bermuda here, to the "birthplace of The Bahamas." The long narrow island they discovered and colonized still bears the name Eleuthera -- Greek for "freedom." The locals call it Cigatoo.
Eleuthera is an island of white- and pink-sand beaches framed by casuarina trees; high, rolling green hills; sea-to-sea views; dramatic cliffs;and sheltered coves -- and they're still here, unspoiled, waiting for you to discover today. More than 100 miles (161km) long but merely 2 miles (3km) wide (guaranteeing that you're never far from the beach), Eleuthera is about 70 miles (113km) east of Nassau (a 30-min. flight). The population of 10,000 is largely made up of farmers, shopkeepers, and fishermen who live in old villages of pastel-washed cottages. The resorts here are built around excellent harbors, and roads run along the coastline, though some of them are inadequately paved.
