The climate of Eleuthera (Bahamas)
Eleuthera is a long island situated in the eastern part of the Bahamas. The island is 180 kilometers long and in some places only 1.5 kilometers wide. Eleuthera is an ideal holiday destination for those who like beautiful and quiet beaches. The beaches are never too crowded, so you can enjoy the azure blue sea in peace and quiet. The advantage of a long island is that the beach is never far away. The most important places on Eleuthera are Governors Harbour, Rock Sound and Savannah Sound. The island has three international airports. Harbour Island is situated off the north coast of Eleuthera. On this island the oldest town in the Bahamas can be found: Dunmore Town.
Eleuthera has a tropical savannah climate. Eleuthera has a very pleasant climate. Summers can be warm, but the constantly blowing sea wind has a cooling effect. During the summer heavy rainfall frequently occurs; it can be compared to taking a shower. The period from November till April is the most popular period among tourists because there is little rainfall then. Just like in the rest of the Caribbean there is a risk of tropical depressions and hurricanes all year round.
