The Bahamas is an archipelago of 700 islands and more than 2,000 cays. They stretch from 60 miles off the southeast coast of Florida and is the closest Caribbean destination to the US mainland. The capital of The Bahamas, Nassau, is located on the island of New Providence.

Eleuthera, one of the Bahamian Out Islands or Family Islands, is located 220 Miles east-southeast of Miami, approximately a 70 Minute flight and 60 Miles east of Nassau, a 15 Minute flight. The Bahamas is located in the same time zone as the eastern US seaboard.

Nassau International Airport serves as the principal transportation hub within the Bahamas, offering daily service into the 3 Airports on the Island of Eleuthera, one at Rock Sound, another at Governors Harbour, and a third at North Eleuthera.

Eleuthera has pristine powder white and pink sand beaches and coves along both shorelines of its 110 mile length. The crescent, spiny shaped island, is only 2 miles wide at its widest point, and is surrounded by the transparent, turquoise blue waters of both the Atlantic and Caribbean Seas. Thus most of the unpaved roads on the left and right, of the 'Queens' Highway' traversing the entire island, lead to the sea, and the explorers' own private paradise.

The Bahamian climate is subtropical, with an average annual temperature of 77 degrees. Winter temperature range from approximately 67 degrees to 78 degrees and Summer from 80 degrees to 90 degrees. The annual average rainfall estimated is 76 inches.

Entertainment largely revolves around the sea and water sporting activities.
Eleuthera is aptly deemed a member of the Bahamian "Family Islands", because many of the islands' visitors have the opportunity to experience the warm, welcoming nature of the Eleutheran population, thereby garnering a taste for true Bahamian living. In fact there are few places in the world where visitors driving down the street are constantly greeted by members of the local population, Eleuthera remains one of these rare locations.
