which airport?

We'll be staying at DaVilla in Governor's Harbor in February and are unsure of which airport to use. We love sight seeing and it seems taking the Queen's Highway may be a scenic drive from North Eleuthera to Gov. Harbor. However, if the road is in rough condition and it'll take hours and hours to get there, we'll skip the roadside views. Any info. is welcome as this will be our first trip to Eleuthera! Thanks!

If it offers the best connection for you, then by all means, fly into Governors Harbour. The airport is about 9 miles north of the town and is an easy drive in. However, if North Eleuthera suits your flight schedule best, then it is not a big deal to fly in there instead. It is around 50 miles, and I've done this ride in just over 3 hours on a bicycle with pretty decent roads -- so in a car, you should have no trouble and make the drive in just over a hour without pushing it.

As for the roadside views -- you'll be challenged not to stop at least once to take in the spectacular views -- especially Glass Window!

As Dusty has said it is a litle over an hour from ELH and the road is in good shape. There are one or two turns that you might miss, but it is a pretty easy drive. If it is as easy and inexpensive for you to fly into GHB then I would do that. You will probably enjoy touring around and exploring more once you are settled in your rental.
