Make a Holiday Rental Villa in Governor’s Harbor, Bahamas Your Home Away From Home

Lying just about perfectly centre on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas is the sleepy town of Governor’s Harbor. Deemed to be the first landing place of the English settlers, The Eleutherian Adventurers, Governor’s Harbor is the ideal location to have a luxurious rental villa as a base. If you are looking for rest and relaxation with a few activities available, should you feel energetic, then a Governor’s Harbor holiday is the absolute perfect option for you. Full of history and tradition, the town is one of the best places on the island to experience the “real Eleuthera”.

Things to Do on Holiday to Governor’s Harbor, Bahamas

Governor’s Harbor is as yet unaffected by mass tourism and so there are fewer activities to choose from than other islands in The Bahamas. That said, you cannot miss the wonderfully clear, sparkling water of the sea set against beautiful pinkish sand in Governor’s Harbor. This is the perfect spot for a bit of sunbathing or to indulge in some watersports such as sailing, snorkelling and surf fishing. Other activities available in Governor’s Harbor include horse riding, walking and bird watching. The stunning scenery of the town is perfect for those who love photography or painting.

To the north of Governor’s Harbor are The Hatchet Bay Caves. On the approach to this site it looks like you are just entering a big green field – but the real treasure lies hidden underneath the surface. The caves stretch over a mile underground and have wonderful stalagmites and stalactites to see, which are particularly spectacular in torchlight. It is rumoured that the pirates of the Caribbean used to use The Hatchet Bay Caves to shelter.

The beaches are superb and we enjoyed swimming, snorkelling and kayaking. The property is good for a quiet beach holiday and has everything you need although it is showing some signs of wear and tear. This does not detract from the level of comfort at all. At the time we visited the island was very quiet but there are fabulous beaches to explore. Eleuthera is beautiful and if you are interested in seeing the real Bahamas then don't hesitate to go and visit it yourself, and for 2 to 6 people this is a great place to stay. You will need a car though.
