#7 of 12 in Nature in Eleuthera
Delve into Preacher's Cave to see a spectacular natural wonder with skylights in the ceiling. Discovered in the 17th century, the cave once served as a shelter for Captain William Sayles and a group of Puritans, who used the cavern to hold religious services. A placard at the entrance reads, "William Sayles shipwrecked at Devil Backbone found refuge here. Sermons held 100 years." Following your exploration of the cave, you can visit some of the surrounding beaches. Make Preacher's Cave a part of your Eleuthera vacation plans using our Eleuthera trip site .
