I've been to Eleuthera 6 times, and I always make a visit to this location. The colors of the water on each side is so different. The pounding waves of the Atlantic are dramatic, especially when you look on the "Caribbean" side as many people call it (Though it's not the Caribbean...) The terrain is bit rugged, so be careful...

Painted in the 1800's by the great American landscape painter Winslow Homer. Very narrow with the Atalantic and the Caribbean coming together rather violently. Beautiful.

Beautiful to see the raging, strong, dark blue Atlantic on one side, the calm, tranquil, turquoise Caribbean on the other - take a deep breath, savor the sight, then get back in your car and leave, got the sense it's the kind of place you don't stay for long ..... Certainly admire those that built and maintain the bridge, must... More

Be careful on the road, you have to pull over and watch for traffic if you are taking pics, and be careful of the rocks trying to get that perfect shot. Also, go early in the afternoon, the sunlight is perfect

Your chance to experience this unique Mother Nature creation is stunning. Huge Atlantic waves on one side come rushing through to the quiet Caribbean side creating an amazing water scene.

Neat place and great coral rock cliffs on the Eastern (Atlantic) side. It's very sharp terrain to get to the edge of the cliffs on the north side. Well worth climbing the sharp coral for the cliff views. See my picture from my airplane to see the contrast in ocean depth and color from one side of the bridge to... More

You have the Caribbean on one side and the Atlantic on the over as you go over this narrow bridge. The two bodies of water have completely different colors - dark blue Atlantic to turquoise Caribbean. Too bad there is no real photo Op here. No place to pull over.

We stopped by the Glass Window Bridge. Would have driven right by it though if I didn't know we were looking for it. For being their claim to fame, there was not much signage or clear indication that's where we were until we went over it once. But it is truly breathtaking!

The reason we traveled to Eleuthera is that I saw an aerial view of the Glass Window bridge in a magazine and decided I had to go to wherever it was. There are many reasons to visit Eleuthera, but to see the glass window in person isn't really one of them. The approach to the bridge is bordered on the... More

Bring good walking shoes for this little excursion. You can see the ATLANTIC and Caribbean from a single spot. Very cool.
