The Glass Window Bridge - Review
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
Amazing landmark. You can park before entering the bridge going south. Just be careful. You can climb the ridges and get amazing photos. The division in between the Atlantic Ocean and Bight of Eleuthera is easily identified from above. A must when in Eleuthera.
The Eleuthera-defining view both sides of the island, with the Atlantic Ocean's deep purple separated from the gin-clear Exuma Sound by a few feet of rock. Stop and explore, see how the north end of the bridge was picked up by a wave and moved 8 feet west, reducing traffic from two lanes to one! Not to be missed!
Awesome site. Well worth the visit. No big seas the day we were there, but very impressive nonetheless.
It's a wonderful expression of nature beauty and strength, very accessable, pay attention to warning as it will be closed for passing when the weather is bad. Unknowingly locals and visitor's refer to the location as the northern deep water side as the Atlantic did which is correct but then some are confused and refer to the southern calm side as the Caribbean side, no such thing the whole Bahamas sits in the Atlantic ocean, more accurately, we are north of Hispaniola and Cuba both islands marking the boundaries of the northern Caribbean sea meaning their southern coasts ate in the Caribbean and their northern coast are washed by the Atlantic ocean. So in future a reference to the Glass window bridge location can and should be, deep north side the Atlantic and the calm shallow southern side, the bank, exuma sound, but yes the Atlantic ocean.
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.
