The Cove, Eleuthera
Why Stay At The Cove, Eleuthera
Intimate retreat set along a softly curved pristine beach on tranquil Eleuthera Island.
Recently rejuvenated, typical Bahamian-style The Cove occupies 40 acres along a private beach in Gregory Town within easy reach of Surfer's Beach or Gaulding Cay. The landscaped gardens are interspersed with walking trails and accented by picture-perfect palm trees, which come complete with hammocks ideal for a leisurely afternoon nap or a good read. Laze by the ocean view infinity pool before heading down to the turquoise water lapping the white-sand beach. Accommodations offer cool monochrome Caribbean-style interiors and high-tech amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi and large flat-screen TVs. Chef Chris Lynch, who trained under culinary icon Emeril Lagasse, helms the property's oceanfront restaurant. Tip: The Bahamian Conch Fritters and Coconut Rum Island Shrimp are a must-try. Ready for a sundowner? End your day fittingly with a Pink Mojito (an homage to the island's famed beaches) at the Sunset Bar overlooking the sea.
For a midday pick-me-up, head to Bahama Bean coffee shop, which is part of the local Bahamian Coffee Company. Staff brews beverages from ordinary cups o' Joe to fancy lattes.
Rent a 4x4 from the hotel, pack a flashlight plus sturdy shoes and check out nearby Hatchet Bay Cave.
Arrive at Eleuthera North Airport (ELH) which is approximately 13 miles from the resort Anticipate about 25 minutes of travel time. Or elect to arrive at Governor's Harbor Airport (GHB) which is about 19 miles (30 minutes) away.Queen's Highway, Gregory Town, Eleuthera, Bahamas

Why We Love Eleuthera
Known for its untouched pink and white sands as well as its quaint New England architecture, the island is encircled by crystal clear waters and famous for the unique 'glass window' where the dark blue Atlantic Ocean meets the aquamarine Caribbean Sea.
Queens Highway, Rock Sound, Eleuthera.
Where to Drink: Tippy's at Pineapple Fields is arguably one of the island's best beach bars boasting a large planked outdoor deck and sweeping water views. Order Eleuthera's signature drink: the highly potent Rum Bubba made with a selection of four specialty rums, fruit juices and Grenadine. Cocktails for two $20.
Banks Road, Pineapple Fields, Eleuthera.
Best Day Trip: Catch the water taxi from Three Island Dock and shuttle over to nearby Harbour Island. Often called the Nantucket of the Caribbean, this quaint patch of land combines the characteristics of vibrant coastal New England towns with a palm-treed flower-filled backdrop. You can rent a golf cart to get around (about $40 per day) or just explore the island on foot.
Outdoor Excursion: See virgin Lighthouse Beach on the island's southernmost tip by boat with Eleuthera Tours. The trip includes a visit to Bannerman town, snorkeling the nearby reef as well as freshly caught grilled conch and rum punch for lunch. 5-hour tour $90 per person.
