    Finding seclusion in Governor's Harbour

    Governor's Harbour is the gateway to chilled Eleuthera. Spilling down to a shoreline where bobbing yachts front whitewashed mansions, the town is a patchwork of proud Victorian architecture and stone-faced Anglophone churches. If you're looking to channel the more local, earthy side of Bahamian life, then Governor's Harbour vacation rentals could be the thing for you. Surrounded by spicy fish fries and cocktail shacks, breezy fishing jetties and pink-sanded beaches where there's not another soul in sight, you really could feel like you've found a hidden jewel between the cays.

    Feeling the local pulse in Governor's Harbour

    Simply strolling through the clutch of historic Victorian relics that dot the streets of sleepy Governor's Harbour is a great way to start a trip here. After that, you can mosey down to the ramshackle fish grills on the shore, or crack out the rod and go in search of your own catch with help from the locals. Boat charters are ubiquitous, offering an odyssey along the deserted coves and coastal stretches of gorgeous Eleuthera, while art lessons and cooking classes mean something more hands-on in the town itself.

    From pink sands to historic libraries in Governor's Harbour

    Go sightseeing up Buccaneer Hill and you'll find the clutch of handsome Victorian relics that makes Governor's Harbour such an historic place to stay. They look out to the boat-bobbing jetties below, or cast their gaze across to the western shores where there's French Leave Beach _ think rare pink-hued sands and real romance. The old, rose-colored Haynes Library is a great stop for getting that fix of local Caribbean heritage, while the Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve has botanical walks and nature trails through the island's tropical groves _ perfect for the whole family.

    Sunny days in Governor's Harbour

    Governor's Harbour touts al fresco Caribbean eateries and resplendent pink-hued sands. And if that sounds like a destination that's best enjoyed when the sun is shining, that's because it is. Opt to travel in the drier, milder months of wintertime to be in with the best chance of catching the rays without the tropical rain. That means booking your Governor's Harbour vacation rental any time between November and March _ just be sure to watch out for the Christmas boom, when rates here can soar.

    Secluded natural wonders on Governor's Harbour

    Governor's Harbour sits right in the middle of fabled Eleuthera Island, which stretches like a leg through the northern reaches of the Bahamian archipelago. The nearby French Leave Beach is famous for its rare, coral-hued pink sands, and has rows of dunes topped with seagrasses to encircle its secluded shore. A taste of the Caribbean backcountry can be had at the Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve. Hop from your Governor's Harbour vacation rental and go there to see mangrove swamps, waterfalls and mahogany forests from the trails.
