This beautiful 25 acre nature preserve is located on Bank Road of Governor’s Harbour. Funded by the Bahamas National Trust and funded by the Leon Levy Foundation, the Preserve is considered as a must-visit place for environmental education. The founder Shelby White established this Preserve in memory of her late husband Leon Levy, who was very fond of plants. Today the Preserve serves as a research center for traditional bush medicine. Walk through the boardwalk and you will come across a small waterfall. Move further and the path will take you to the Observation tower where you will come across nearly hundreds of different trees, plants and wildlife like five-finger plants and mangroves.
It is an ideal place to enjoy a walking tour with friends and families.

Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve Reviews & Ratings
Wonderful place, great hike through the preserve. Trails and plants are well-marked. Easy walking, even in sandals, but some steep areas and twists and turns that could be difficult for some who are not daily walkers. Informative welcome center, nice gift shop, proceeds to a great cause. Clean, environmentally friendly restrooms. Water fountains available, but I would suggest carrying water with you.
Wonderful hiking in a well maintained reserve. There are a lot of different plant species with tags that explain everything.
Gorgeous, phenomenally well-maintained preserve! The staff is super friendly and I was so impressed with the informational signage, which was honestly better than at most US botanical gardens -- there was at least one name card for every type of plant in the preserve, and in some cases multiple. Definitely a great way to spend a morning or afternoon if you're in Eleuthera ❤️
It was a heartwarming, inspiring and comforting adventure
Nice hike in the Bahamas. My daughter wished she could buy food to feed the turtles. She would of been there for hours
