This is a great stop. The preserve is very close to Governor's Harbour. The cost to enter was minimal. The preserve was impeccably maintained, had a very nice look out tower and various sections highlighting different types of native plants.

Know this going in: A full walk around the Levy preserve will make you savor getting to the watch tower, just because it's so much cooler up in the air! What a cool place, and clearly a source of huge (and justifiable) pride for Eleutherans. The Levy preserve is ostensibly a chance to learn about plant and animal life in... More

A beautiful place to learn about Eleuthera's botanical history and hike trails filled with native plants. It's only $5 to get in per person-even better! We spent a few hours here, and it was well spent. Would go again in a heartbeat!

On the Banks Road, not far from Tippy's, this little oasis of native plantings is worth a quick visit.

Neat place to visit to see the different plants in Eleuthera. Beware there were a lot of those bat moths flying around. It was nice to see the view from the tower and the breeze was awesome. Very nice to see!!

A couple of my friends & I visited the Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve in Eleuthera. As we walked the paths and viewed the wonderful assortment of plants & trees, we found it to a wonderful, tranquil and enjoyable experience. We all would highly recommend a visit to this lovely preserve.

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
