travel safety in Eleuthera

Can anyone please tell me how safe it is for a woman who travel alone in Eulethera? Should I be concern about crime and safety in some area. I plan to stay near Governor Harbor.

I can't think of a place in the world that would be safer.

Take the normal precautions with your valuables, keep them out of sight, etc.

As for actual physical safety -- no worry at all. If any physical assault on a tourist has ever occurred over here, I'm unaware of it, at least in recent history.

Nassau is another story ... but 'Lutra, you're as safe as you'd be anywhere on the planet.

As a fellow single female traveler, I agree that you'll be safe. I've spent a lot of time on Harbour Island and have done day trips to Eleuthera (for lunch at Tippy's). You'll find the people to be extremely friendly and helpful. Only thing would be to take precautions against petty crime, which you would have to do anywhere.

I routinely travel to Eleuthera alone and have never once felt uneasy. As a previous poster said however, as with anyplace, be prudent and don't leave valuables visible in the car as temptation. Lot's of people hitchhike on the island and while I pick them up on a regular basis, it's probably not something a new visitor should consider especially if there are homecomings scheduled on the island. Enjoy the serenety and peacefulness of the island.
