About The Glass Window Bridge, Eleuthera
Often called as the narrowest place on Earth, the Glass Window Bridge is a definite place to visit in Eleuthera Island. Lying in between north end of Gregory Town and the Northern end of Eleuthera Island, this man-made bridge is surely a breathtaking place and a perfect point to get jaw-dropping views of the entire region. In one side of the bridge you get to see the lush blue color of the Atlantic Ocean and on the other side the rich green colored water of Caribbean Sea. Above that during sun set, when the golden light flashes over the water, it’s like cherry on top. Stand in the middle of this 30 feet wide bridge if you wish to capture the perfect shot of the entire view. Legend says, sailors gave the name of this bridge as ‘Glass Window’ because they could see the Atlantic Ocean on the other side of the bridge through the limestone arch. However, you won’t be able to see the original natural arch as it had been destroyed due to natural calamity. Otherwise, missing on this site is something cannot be afforded.

The Glass Window Bridge, Eleuthera Reviews
This bridge is a very beautiful site. You have the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Caribbean Ocean on the other. But don't be fooled by the beauty, this bridge is dangerous! Two cars cannot pass at the same time soo please be careful when taking in all of beauty of this site.
They can develop this place much better by building some over watch. But it's good to see different style of water of two sides.
Intriguing, harrowing, interesting, beautiful, scary. So many wild and mixed emotions when visiting this landmark. We initially drove across the bridge upon arrival to Eleuthera...at night, in a windy rainstorm. We couldn't see a thing. Upon returning in the daytime, we were glad we had only a limited understanding of the natural feature. The dramatic backdrop of the Atlantic and the Caribbean mixed with the rocky surface if the moon in the middle made for an interesting photo opportunity. However, I'm finding my photos can't really do it justice as they don't quite capture the awesome power of the ocean and the serene beauty of the sea witnessed at the bridge. Be sure to check out the blow hole appx 100yds south of the bridge, just off the road on the Caribbean side. Caution: the bridge is one lane and can push cars to one side when windy. There are no guardrails when hiking around for photos. The rocky limestone surface is jagged, but can be slick when wet with sea spray. The edges are loose, so be careful. There is a bar and cafe just north of the bridge that opens at 1215 pm during the week and has excellent views of the Caribbean.
If you're heading through here it is absolutely worth the stop. This bridge perfectly cuts through two stunningly different bodies of water.
You should see the view from the bridge before you die. The bridge divides sea: Atlantic oceans and Caribbean sea. We can see clearly the colors are different. That’s the strangest and most beautiful view ever!!!
