  • I stayed on Eleuthera for 5 days with my boyfriend and we visited this Preserve on our first day. We were pleasantly surprised by how big the grounds were, how affordable it was, and how much we learn...  more »

  • We enjoyed a nice hike through the national park. We loved learning about the different types of plants and animals, and even saw a snake!
  • Very relaxing walk. Turtles like to be fed. They have grown a little needy but they're still cute. Lots of varying plant life to observe.
  • A must see when you visit Euluthera! They have gotten rid of all the non-native plants and focus on the native plant to the island. Beautiful trails with interesting gardens such as the medicinal plants. Take the long trail to the tower for a look above the canopy.
  • The view from the tower is impressive. Don't be afraid of the flocking turtles.
  • Nicely labeled native and foreign plants. Visit the turtles and mangrove.
