Seven miles north of Rainbow lies the village of Gregory Town, which serves as an anchor for a number of vacation home communities. A combination of the local red dirt and ample rainfall make Gregory Town’s pineapples among the sweetest in the world, which is the village’s first claim to fame. The second is that Lenny Kravitz owns a cottage on the outskirts. Elvina’s, the Gregory Town bar known to all Eleuthera regulars, hosts a lively open mike session twice a week, featuring everything from local musicians to the occasional appearance by Lenny himself. Gregory Town is also the center of surfing activity on the island: nearby Surfer’s Beach has excellent waves and a global reputation. Lest the reader conclude that Gregory Town is for parties only, the village has a perfectly respectable public boat ramp, bakery, gas station, and several shops and restaurants.
