This was one of the highlights of my first trip to Eleuthera. From the friendly and knowledgeable staff to the helpful signs throughout the preserve, I really enjoyed wandering around and learning more about the flora and fauna of Eleuthera. So many of my "I wonder what that is" questions were answered by coming here. The meandering shady walk through... More

Very interesting and planned out nature preserve in Governor's Harbour. It comprises 25 acres of reclaimed natural habitats that is just off Banks Road near Tippy's Restaurant and the Pineapple Fields Resort. It wasn't exactly what we were expecting, but it was excellent. There is a lot of walking through well marked, but fairly rugged path's through the jungle foliage.... More

We were staying right on Banks road for a week of vacation and we passed it on our way into town so we decided to stop and check it out. We got there when they were about to close so we had about forty five minutes to walk around. The staff were very friendly, they gave us maps and explained... More

We enjoyed our afternoon hiking around this beautiful preserve. Its off the road on the way to Tippy's. It was informative & enjoyable. We especially liked the fresh water pond & climbing up Ethans tower. Its in the early stages of development so I can only imagine what they can do in time with all the acreage still available.

Nice way to learn about the island, it's history, plants, and society. Just make sure you go before it's too hot.

This was a great diversion on a sunny afternoon. A lot of love and expertise was put in to developing this preserve. The staff were very helpful, wish we had longer to enjoy this beautiful place.

Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve is a magic place that is unique. The Botanist (Andy?) is very enthusiastic. The layout is excellent and there is lots to see. There is up and down and side-hill climbing so walkers, canes, etc. probably aren't a good idea. We spent a delightful two plus hours there and thoroughly enjoyed it. Strongly recommend a... More
