Glass Window, Eleuthera

4.3
See the Atlantic Ocean meet the Caribbean Sea at Glass Window. At the narrowest part of the island, a man-made bridge links tiny North Eleuthera to the rest of the island. The bridge replaces a natural rock formation that was destroyed in a hurricane. Standing on the bridge, you can see the dark waters of the Atlantic come together with the turquoise Caribbean Sea in a striking natural contrast. Observe the turbulent ocean melding with the calm sea and capture some postcard-worthy photos--just be wary of the waves when on the bridge.

  • The Glass Window is a bridge where you can see the two seas ... the ocean raged and the calm Caribbean Sea. Except special days, you will see various shades of Turquoise of the calm Caribbean Sea against intense blue of the stormy Atlantic. Lovely place. Leave your vehicle on the roadside for a quick photo. Unfortunately there is a pitch for the staging, but traffic is limited.
