The Levy Preserve is worth the visit! My husband and I went there a few days ago and we had such a great time there. We stayed about 2 hours and enjoyed ourselves very much! The entrance fee is $5 per adult and $3 per child. It is open from 9am to 5pm. It is a great place where you... More

The park is an excellent presentation of the flora and fauna of Eleuthera. Unfortunately, I was the first explorer of the day to clear away all of the spider webs across the path to Ethan's Tower. I was covered in spider webs and absolutely freaked out with fear I was covered in spiders. If you are the first visitor of... More

This place was just down the road from our place and we wanted a change of pace from beachcombing...and was pleasantly surprised by how extensive this preserve really was.

Each time you walk the beautiful trails you'll encounter something new. The boardwalk through the mangroves is an adventurous and fun walk. The water features are alive with turtles and birds. They even have water lilies. Take a leisurely stroll through winding trails with different plants tucked in even turn to Ethan's Tower. The climb to the top will provide... More

After a week spent saying, "I wonder what kind of plant that is..." we finally had all our questions answered at the Native Plant Preserve. Don't miss the Lookout Tower. The people who work there are very knowledgeable and were happy to answer our questions after our 1 hour strooll throught the preserve.

We like supporting things that tells the story of indiginous flora and fauna and what "settles" introduced to these islands. The Levy preserve is well maintained, laid out and staffed with knowledgeable people who take pride in what they are trying to accomplish. We are always interested in the plant life that locals for centuries used to cure ailments and... More

My wife and I happened to pop into the preserve while our kids were horseback riding at OceanView farms. The preserve is very thought out and very interesting. The facility is beautiful. It provides information and examples of indigenous plants and the history of the origin of those in Eleuthera. Great for those interested in learning something about the island... More

I quickly learned that matching the number of the plant we were looking at to the name of the plant on the sheet they gave us was a waste of time as I would never remember them. I also expected to know the specific type of ailment that was to be treated by each plant rather than the broad category... More

We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with the interpretation at The Preserve. The numbering system was chosen to avoid excessive signage and allow guests to consume as much or as little information as they like while on the trails. For those that want more in depth information, we offer guided tours that provide the more detailed content related... More

This is a beautiful and educational place to enjoy and find out more about the native plants of the Bahamas. Even if plants aren't really your thing, you will enjoy the beautiful hiking trails, water features, and the view from "Ethan's Tower' where you can get up above the trees and see 360 degrees around the island. You can just... More
