Eleuthera, the longest island in The Bahamas, is generally called the Island of Freedom. Over 300 years ago, English Puritan Adventurers, now referred to as the Eleutheran Adventurers, in search of religious freedom travelled to Eleuthera and founded what was probably the first democracy in the western world. Eleuthera is an island of contrasts. It is just over one mile wide at most places but is 110 miles long with magnificent pink-white beaches, sheltered coves, breathtaking bluffs, cliffs and fine harbours. The cliffs are in the north where the deep blue colour of the Atlantic Ocean can be seen on one side and the calmer turquoise Caribbean Sea on the other. In the centre of the island is the hilly farming area, famous for pineapples and tomatoes. In the south the island is green and flatter with quaint villages.
Governor's Harbour, the major settlement on mainland Eleuthera, is one of the oldest settlements in The Bahamas. Other settlements are Current Island, The Current, Spanish Wells and Harbour Island, Gregory Town, The Bluff, Lower and Upper Bogue, Hatchet Bay, James Cistern, Palmetto Point, Tarpum Bay, Rock Sound, Green Castle, Wemyss Bight, Savannah Sound, Deep Creek, Bannerman Town and Cape Eleuthera.
