For less than $50 round trip, Spanish Wells – Harbour Town, takes ~half hour each way, the fast ferry leaves you with about four too-short hours to enjoy Harbour Island.
Who hangs out in Harbour Town, Eleuthera?
British royalty. Mick Jagger and Lenny Kravitz.
Vrooom! A narrow channel didn’t seem to hamper the ferry’s speed.
Local homeowners include Bill Gates, Revlon chairman Ron Perelman, duty-free tycoon Robert Miller, J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler, media mogul Barry Diller and wife Diane von Furstenberg, and former Miami Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga.
Even in exclusive Harbour Town, chickens cross the road (and boat).
And me, for a few blissful hours anyhow.Didn’t see any celebs (though wouldn’t likely recognize any anyway), but did hang out with “Krazy Lady” aka Ann and Andy of Andante, and a free-range chicken or two.
Even a simple cement dock was pretty with Harbour Island’s water as a backdrop
Will let the photos tell this tale….
Conch midden, another testament to an abundant appetite for conch.
May 19, 2014 BAHAMAS Allan-Pensacola Cay,(N26.59.350 W77.41.353), though this is a recent retrospective from when we were in Spanish Wells, Eleuthera (N25.32.484 W76.44.728) late April – early May, 2014. Tomorrow we head off for Double Breasted, between 35-40 miles. From there. we’ll leave the Abacos the first viable weather window to Florida — most likely the next day. It’s about 110 miles to Ft. Pierce, which we’ll sail as an overnight passage, as we typically average ~5 miles / hour sailing.
Too busy taking in the sights on a tight schedule to rest in this restful spot.
The gal at the Harbour Island tourist office directed us to this favorite spot of hers.
In the same area; we were told this “fake” tree was added later, but it still looked cool to us.
Who can resist taking a photo of a little blue wooden skiff with a backdrop this beautiful?
Eleuthera is renowned for its pineapples.
Valentine’s pink sand beach, Atlantic side, Harbour Island.
The water is even dreamier than the pink sand beach.
