How to Get 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) in the north of the island, and a smaller airport at Rock Sound, in the south of the island.

Getting to Eleuthera is easy with daily flights to Governors Harbour and North Eleuthera from Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and Nassau on United Airlines, BahamasAir, American Airlines and numerous smaller carriers. Hut Pointe Inn is most easily reached by arriving at Governors Harbour Airport (GHB) but can also be reached by arriving at North Eleuthera (ELH). The drive from North Eleuthera to Governors Harbour is approximately 45 minutes, but some people find that the connection times into Miami are preferable from there. There is weekly ferry service to GHB from Nassau, but its a long trip (approx 4-5 hrs), so we recommend flying (16 minutes). Once on the island, visitors can rent a car or travel by taxi.
