Spanish Wells, Bahamas
Pink sand, clear waters and friendly people
Located on the small island of St.
George's Cay, Spanish Wells has a rich
history.  Settled by Loyalists and
Eleutheran Adventures over 300 years
ago, the friendly inhabitants still maintain
some of their English heritage in speech
and manner.  Only 1 1/2 miles by 1/2 mile
wide, it still has room for over 1500
residents, 400+ cars and more than 100
golf carts (as optional transportation).  
The island is not a tourist destination but
rather a working island where the main
industry is fishing for the Spiny Lobster.
Access to the island is via boat, either  
private yacht, water taxi from nearby
North Eluethera, the fast ferry from
Nassau and Harbour Island or the
"Eleuthera Express", a 140 foot freighter
that plys the water to and from some of
the nearby islands and Nassau.
