Nobody comes to Eleuthera to visit household-name tourist attractions, but to me this was the most interesting site we visited. Extremely well-presented and maintained. The people who run this place deserve a lot of credit for this most informative exhibit. We walked through for about...More
We absolutely loved visiting the Preserve. It is so well organized and there is so much beauty. We learned so much about the endemic and invasive plants in the Bahamas. It truly takes about two hours to enjoy this place.
What a wonderful relaxing hike through the vegetation, complete with guides and signs to assist you in discovering the variety of fauna. There are paths for young and old. Keep your eyes and ears open and you may see things that are watching you. Dress...More

The Preserve is a natural area and does not do any spraying or general mosquito control.

February is a good time to visit as it is the dry season and mosquitoes are much less common

Hi Carol, There is no public transportation on the island. To get here on your own, you would have to take a taxi. This would be very expensive as the trip is about 2 hours round trip. If you are traveling with Princess Cays cruise line they offer a tour to the Preserve. This would be your best option.

Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve with stroller? (5 Replies)
Hi - We will be visiting Eleuthera at the end of April with our sons, 4.5 years and 21 months. Would love to walk through the plant preserve but the little one will need to be restrained or will surely disappear into the jungle to find his own (feral) kind.... are the paths stroller accessible? The stroller will be a fairly rugged one, not a little umbrella stroller. Any other ideas for good spots with this kids this little would be appreciated. We are staying in North Palmetto Point and...More

Some of those paths will handle a well-built stroller, could be a bit of a slog and require a little muscle, but worth trying. The beach at Ten Bay has *really* shallow and generally calm waters. Our grandsons always love visit there.
