Getting to Eleuthera

Located 200 miles southeast of Miami and 50 miles east of Nassau, Eleuthera has three airports: Governors Harbour (GHB) in central Eleuthera, North Eleuthera (ELH) at the north of the island, and a smaller airport at Rock Sound, on the south of the island. Getting to Eleuthera is easy with daily flights from Nassau, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Atlanta, Orlando, and Charlotte.

Nassau is the shortest flight (just 20 minutes to Eleuthera), has the most flights per day, and has the least expensive flights (just $75 each way). There are daily non-stop flights to Nassau from many airports including Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, Charlotte, Atlanta, Dallas, Toronto, Montreal, and London, and weekly non-stop flights from Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, Newark, and Calgary. From Nassau, Southern Air, Pineapple Air, and Bahamas Air all fly to Eleuthera multiple times a day (see below for contact info, websites, and schedules) including flights to Governors Harbour at 8 a.m., 12 noon, 3:30, and 4 p.m. IMPORTANT: Most of these flights do not appear on websites like Expedia. You can use the booking engine on this webpage to view and book those flights. In order to catch the last flight to Eleuthera at 4 p.m., plan to arrive in Nassau no later than 2:30 p.m. An important tip to breeze through customs in Nassau: There is a separate line if you are going on to Eleuthera, and there is never anyone in that line. To use that line, follow the signs for "Family Island Intransit" or "Family Island Connections."
