Another jewel of the Bahamas, the 110 mile long island is a tropical vacationer’s dream. Famous for it’s pink sand beaches, coral reefs, caves and excellent snorkelling, the island’s commercialisation thankfully has not destroyed its charm (though it can definitely get very crowded). Very popular with spring breakers and the Christmas crowd, the huge influx of people can spoil Eleuthera tourism for some – especially due to the huge waiting lines. Luckily, this is Bahamas, so the weather is ‘right’ all year long if you don’t mind a little humidity.

- Do not explore caves alone and always bring backup matches, torches and batteries.
