On our first family trip to Eleuthera in March 2012, we spent a lot of time in Gregory Town, and at Surfer's Beach, which is a short walk from Surfer's Haven. When we returned in December, on a surf trip for my teenage son and his friend, my son insisted Surfer's Haven was the place to be. No need to drive to the beach - they were first in the water, surfed 6 of 7 days, often having the waves to themselves. But you don't have to be a surfer to enjoy Surfer's Haven. Tom and Liz know the island well, and offer adventure trips too - surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, cave exploring...and, if peace and quiet is what you want, at a great price too, look no further. Spend your days walking on secluded beaches, or lounging in a hammock, reading one of the many books in their library. If you want to explore the island yourself, Tom and Liz can recommend reliable places to rent a car. But be aware that cars are difficult to maintain, particularly on the out islands, so car problems are not uncommon. But, what's the rush? There are several good restaurants just minutes away, or you can buy your own groceries and dine in at Surfer's Haven. Tom and Liz are great hosts, and we felt very welcome in a relaxing home environment, and Liz makes great pizza. The kitchen and common areas in the main house are a great place to chat with other world travelers looking for a peaceful escape, and we met a wonderful mix of friendly people. So, enjoy your next trip to Eleuthera at Surfer's Haven, and tell Tom and Liz we said hello.
