You have to see it to appreciate it. The inky blue Atlantic and the glistening turquoise Caribbean side by side with just a narrow concrete bridge separating them. Fantastic contrast of colours. Best viewed in bright sunlight, which is in abundance in Eleuthera even in December.

Although it was beautiful (after getting out of our car on the highway and leaning over the edge to see it), it was a ridiculously long drive for such an underwhelming view from the road.

The Glass Window used to be a natural bridge that collapsed some time ago during a hurricane and was replaced by a small concrete bridge. Here the Atlantic can wash into the Caribbean. It looks like the water on the Atlantic side is higher than the Caribbean side but it is an optical illusion.

Be warned, if you hike down below the bridge as we did be careful. The coral is sharp and it is possible to be pushed into the Caribbean or pulled out into the Atlantic unexpectedly by rushing waves. The Atlantic side is very ruff. It will also eat your flip flops if you are not careful.

We loved Eleuthera ... The trip to see Glass Window rewarded us with some great pictures and postcard memories. It is simple and wild just like the island. We were able to park off of the road and enjoy.

One of those places that you don't want to tell somebody you missed. On the day we stopped, the deep blue water action on the Atlantic was dramatic, while over our shoulders on the leeward side of the island, the water was calm and the water teal. This stop will give you a pretty good idea of how powerful the action of the sea is over time. Glad we stopped
