“Beautiful and tranquil retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Very helpful staff and beautifully kept trails make this a must see attraction when visiting Eleuthera. Camilla offered us bug spray and took a lot of time explaining things to my 2 granddaughters

“interesting place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

a nice change from the beach scene. long trails through the preserve some can be quite steep. probably not a good place to bring small kids or strollers. the lookout tower is a nice touch and the 360 view looking over the tree tops is really cool, but it is a hike to get to. entrance fee is just 5 bucks which is totally worth it.

“One of the Best Nature Preserves!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We spent about two hours here walking the delightful trails and learning about the plants of the island. This was well worth it! The preserve is still being constructed and the folks there are very knowledgeable and accommodating. We would definitely return!

“There's more to Eleuthra than beaches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We love the beaches but this is a great diversion. This preserve is not so much an effort to preserve the plants at this location, but an effort to build an environment of native plant life of the Bahamas. Lots of plants have been brought in and lots of foreign invasive plants have been removed. I especially liked the epiphytes and orchids. Only a few orchids we're in bloom but they were fun to look for. I also liked the approach of telling some of the natural history of the Bahamas through the medicinal uses for many of the plants. The trail is not difficult and can be done in sandals. The trail has a fair bit of up and down but not that much elevation change. Take your time and keep your eyes open.
