Spanish Wells, Eleuthera, Bahamas
The beautiful island of Spanish Wells is located just off the northern tip of Eleuthera, "the island of freedom". Just 2 miles long and 1/2 mile wide, our little island features a stretch of pristine white sand beach, lined with turquoise, crystal clear water. The first settlers here in Spanish Wells were the Eleutheran Adventurers, who shipwrecked on The Devil's Backbone with William Sayle. Spanish Wells is an island full of history and sheer beauty. Locals take pride in keeping the island of Spanish Wells clean and safe.
Spanish Wells is considered to be a "fishing village," actually, the fishing capital of the Bahamas. The majority of men here provide for their families by catching spiny lobster, better known by locals as "crawfish".
Just a short ferry ride away from the main island, Eleuthera, where North Eleuthera International Airport is located, Spanish Wells is easily and affordably accessible. Locals welcome new people and even rent their homes to tourists to provide an affordable way for visitors to experience life here in Spanish Wells.
