Getting around Eleuthera and Spanish Wells

Keep in mind that when you arrive you will have to go through customs.  The experience may

be a little different than what you encounter in the United States. You will also need to be sure to have a passport that doesn’t expire within 6 months of your travel date.

From  North Eleuthera (ELH)

If you are staying on Eleuthera it is recommended that you rent a car for your stay since the island is long and narrow, and cab fares are expensive. Click here to find information about car rentals while staying on Eleuthera.


Before you travel it is a good idea to make arrangements with local taxi services to get you to your destination. Many of the caretakers for the rentals on the island will help you with this, but if you are staying in a resort, hotel, or just prefer to make your own travel arrangements, you have a few choices.
