Description 

Located 50 miles east of Nassau (Providence Island), Eleuthera isn't really a tourist destination. On the flip side, it's got a world of potential on the sharp, craggy, limestone cliffs over the Atlantic and the Caribbean. There are scattered boulders both along the beach and on the "mainland" as well.

After spending a lot of time here (8 different visits), I think I can say this could be an excellent place to go. I don't imagine it to be the next Mallorca or Thailand but I do imagine it to be an awesome island with hospitable locals (we hitchhiked the whole time we were there), good pineapple and warm water year round.


Getting There 

Getting here is tough. Fort Lauderdale to Governor's Harbour is the most direct flight, but you can also fly to Nassau and then a short 30 minute flight to Governor's. Then find any cliff you want. Chances are, it's not been climbed yet.
