We were completely impressed by our experience at Leon Levy. We were greeted warmly by two women at the entrance, one of whom (a birder) gave us a wonderful introduction to the preserve, a historical background, and directions/recommendations for how to proceed. We were completely impressed by the knowledge of the staff and the well-cared for and well-maintained facilities. Our... More

Eleuthra is a beautiful and unique place. One has to enjoy nature and the purity of it to Get Eleuthra. The Levy Preserve fit into our the things to list because it is a nice museum of the native plants of the island. it was an enjoyable, educating and entertaining mid morning walk.

We took a group of 18 undergraduate students to Leon Levy for a class visit and the students loved it! Well worth the time and the cost of the tour was well worth it.

I highly recommend a visit to this world class preserve. It is the perfect setting to learn about the flora and ecology of Eleuthera and the Bahamas. Observing the island from atop a perch on Ethan's Tower was one of the many highlights. I was also lucky enough to actually meet Ethan, the head botanist, and ask him many questions... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the walking trail to Ethan's Lookout. We spent a couple hours, I think we saw everything. It was a very enjoyable time.

Leave yourself enough time as I did not so I must return. This is a spectacular preserve so well done. Everything is labeled. I loved the area where plants are organized for their specific uses such as pain, colds, etc. The area designating where plant material originated was most fascinating. I recommend visiting during the summer because I viewed so... More

The Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve was a true hidden gem in Eleuthera. It is absolutely beautiful and a great way to spend the day. It was so pleasant and relaxing to walk around on the groomed trails and loved the overlook-- a great view! A great couple's excursion.

What a wonderful place to visit! Peaceful, educational, and beautiful flora. Significant investment has resulted in a preserve that makes Eleuthera even more interesting and attractive. The paths are well-maintained and the views are amazing. We visited during a rain shower and had the preserve to ourselves. Can't wait to return on our next visit. Great for all ages as... More

The Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve is a place everyone should experience when visiting Eleuthera. Not only does it include really great information but, it's so beautiful! I typically don't enjoy museum or educational type places because I find them to be information heavy and boring but, the plant preserve is nothing like that. You can learn a lot just... More
