Central Eleuthera is centered on Governor’s Harbour, the island’s capital and largest town with a population of 1500. Governors Harbour has a large general store, gas stations, two banks, the island’s only movie theater, a medical clinic, a beautiful historic library, an internet café, a post office, a large harbor with a boat ramp, and numerous restaurants, shops, and government offices. The area also has several new resorts which we will review below. Governor’s Harbour and environs, with its colonial architecture and critical mass of services, is viewed by some as the best location on mainland Eleuthera. As a result, the Central Eleuthera region generally has the highest real estate values on the Eleuthera mainland, not counting the island’s high-end resorts and enclaves.
