Our Magic Sands Vacation
This was our first visit to Eleuthera, and we were not disappointed! The island, people, villa and even the weather were all accommodating and beautiful for our week in Eleuthera. Magic Sands is a treasure, with a touch of luxury that somehow manages after only a few hours to feel like home. Everything we needed was provided for us, from books and movies to kayaks and a crib. Kevin and Hope met us at the airport and even helped haul our luggage, which we could not fit into our rental. They were readily available all week, and when they stopped by on our departure day to see if we needed help getting to the airport, we hated to have to say goodby.
There are many concessions that are necessary whenever visiting a small island, but for the right kind of person the rewards are enormous. For example, there is limited groceries available at the stores, gas is $6.00 a gallon, no internet, beer is $42.50 a case, and the "magic" sand does not re-appear until sometime in the summer. But the benefits far outweigh these minor inconveniences. The restaurants are excellent, the beaches are unbelievable, peace and tranquility are abundant, Kalik is awesome, and a short paddle straight out from the Liki Tiki in one of the kayaks and you get to explore your very own deserted island. And the people are great. We waved at everybody, even when passing by in the opposite direction on Queen's Highway. There is no way we can overstate how important that is to us. Locals and tourists alike seemed to be always happy and treated us like old friends. And why shouldn't they be happy? They are in paradise!
