Eleuthera, The Bahamas

Eleuthera is one of the Bahamas’ “Family Islands” a.k.a. the “Out Islands” and is often regarded as the Real Bahamas, void of cruise ships, mega resorts, or crowded cities.  What the island lacks in tourism infrastructure, is makes up for in natural beauty and authentic Caribbean island life. The island is 110 miles long and just 1-2 miles wide with plenty of secluded, white-sand beaches along both sides.  The Atlantic side has powdery pink sand beaches with deep blue ocean hues and surf and craggy coastline with limestone cliffs.  The Caribbean side is dotted with serene, tranquil turquoise bays, great for swimming, kayaking, and beach-combing.  It is truly a great place for landscape photography.  It is rare to run into another soul on any given beach.

Here is a selection of photos during my years spent living on the island.
