Glass Window Bridge
One of nature's true wonders, The Glass Window Bridge will certainly leave you breathless as you drink in the magnificent panoramic view. It is one of the few places on earth where you can compare the rich blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean on one side of the road and the calm turquoise-green waters of the Exuma Sound (Caribbean Sea) on the other side, separated by a strip of rock just 30 feet wide.TheBridge is about two miles east of Upper Bogue and joins Gregory Town and Lower Bogue at the narrowest point on the island. The land here is high on both sides, falling away abruptly to nearly sea level, almost dividing the island in two. A bridge on its topside connects the northern and southern points of Eleuthera by a paved road.
Queens Highway, South Eleuthera, The Bahamas
Lighthouse Beach is known for its endless miles of unspoiled, soft, powdery, blush-rose sand beach, considered to be one of the most magnificent beaches in The Islands of The Bahamas, and some say it even rivals Harbour Island's Pink Sand Beach. This hidden gem teeters at the southernmost point of Eleuthera, on the Atlantic side of the island. It is nestled in the bosom of a massive rock structure behind some sand dunes. It is very unique because you can play in two bodies of water almost simultaneously, the Exuma Sound (Caribbean Sea) and the Atlantic Ocean. The beach on the Caribbean Sea has several hidden caves and offers good shelling and great snorkeling just a walk off the beach. The Atlantic beach offers great vistas, including Half Moon Cay.
It is also a great place to sunbathe or pack a picnic basket and spend an entire romantic afternoon or sunset stroll with your significant other. You will have the seclusion of an enclosed cove, as well as the adventure of climbing up to the old lighthouse located on a dramatic limestone promontory overlooking the ocean. It you want a photo taken in the lighthouse, be sure to stand at the window and it will be naturally framed. If you decide to camp out for the night, the rock structure provides great protection from the elements.
The path to Lighthouse Beach is somewhat difficult, but the payoff is well worth it.
