Hello Princess Cays!

Hello Girls! A Very Warm Welcome from this 2 inhabitant Cay in the Southern of Eleuthera Island, Bahamas. This place is not mapped in any GPS (yep, that’s why there is nobody in the beach) so the nearest place was Bannerman Town.

A 2 Inhabitant Cay not mapped.

Hello Girls! A Very Warm Welcome from this 2 inhabitant Cay in the Southern of Eleuthera Island, Bahamas. This place is not mapped in any GPS (yep, that’s why there is nobody in the beach) so the nearest place was Bannerman Town.

You can only get there if you are on board of a Princess Cruise, since this Cay belongs to the company. We arrived there thru a smaller boat that carries around 500-1000 passengers per way (from the ship to the Port). However all the Eleuthera Island is as beautiful as this area!

When there is no ship in, the population of Princess Cays is only two, consisting of the on-site managers who live on the property. The Population of Eleuthera is approximately of 13,000 which, we can admit, allow us to play Crusoe!

A Freedom Island

After Christopher Columbus discovered the Island on his maiden voyage (1492), a British group called “the Eleutherian Adventures” settled here in 1648 to escape religious persecution. They named the island Eleuthera, the greek word for Freedom.

The Best of Princess Cays

A part of its turquoise waters and white-sand shores, as well as its desert beaches, Princess Cays offers very sweet and colorful Private Bungalows for their guests (don’t they look like the Barbie house?). You can of course, do snorkeling and any kind of water activities (except diving). Or, if you’re more a cultural and historic tourist, you can visit the famous pirate town Rock Sound  (known as well for its sparkling blue water, spectacular views, colourful island buildings and quaint harbor).

As Princess Cays was my very first Port destination, I spent all my time in the Beach and visited the bungalows shoreside. The warm was very intense so no way to go for a cultural visit 30 miles away to Rock Sound, I guess it was around 82.4 ºF/28 ºC (outside water and inside). So my only wish was to jump into the water and stay there all day long 😛 !

Visiting Eleuthera Island

If you decide to go to this almost forgotten Island in the middle of the Bahamas, you won’t have any issue to book your trip since it’s super easy to get there! Eleuthera & Harbour Island are in the Eastern side of Nassau so it can be reached very easily whatever by air or by sea.

Three airports serve Eleuthera: North Eleuthera International Airport (ELH), Governor’s Harbour International Airport (GHB) and Rock Sound International Airport (RSD). So the best will be to take a flight to Nassau (Bahamas Capital) and then a connection flight (30mins) to Eleuthera. If you are from USA there is direct flights to Nassau around $150-270 from Miami.

Or, if you prefer by sea, Bahamas Ferry Services provides daily high-speed ferry from Nassau to Harbour Island and Spanish Wells, as well as weekly service to the settlements of Current, Hatchet Bay and Governor’s Harbour, Eleuthera.

Did you already visit the Bahamas? Or went to a Cruise with similar destinations? Don’t forget to let me know!

See you very soon for the Part II of my Bahamas trip!
