Rent a golf cart and explore the Spanish Wells area. Restaurants, grocery stores, souvenir stores, and marina nearby.

Snorkeling or kayaking out front from the Pink Hibiscus is fabulous & the sandy Spanish Wells beach is nearby. We welcome your visit!

Transportation: How to Arrive: The closest airport to Spanish Wells is the North Eleuthera Airport (ELH), in Eleuthera, Bahamas. From the airport, it is about a 10 minute ground taxi ride to get to the Gene's Bay dock, where you will board a 5-minute ferry to Spanish Wells. Inquire about the local service that combines the ground taxi and ferry rate to make your trip easier. Two, Four, & Six Seater Golf Carts can be rented for your stay at the Pink Hibiscus, which is recommended to get around the island for groceries, restaurants, sight-seeing, etc. Once you arrive to Spanish Wells, our local Caretaker will meet you at the dock, and you can ride with the Caretaker, or follow the Caretaker in your rented golf cart a short ride to the Pink Hibiscus Cottage.

The North Eleuthera airport is a small airport, and everything regarding your transportation to Spanish Wells - Russell Island is coordinated well and runs fairly smoothly. We can provide you resources and assist with making your transportation arrangements

The Town of Spanish Wells: Spanish Wells is about a 1 x 3 mile island off the northern coast of Eleuthera. The population is about 1800 inhabitants, and the local Bahamians have prospered here with their lobster fishing. The homes in this village are quaint and colorfully painted.

The town combines modern conveniences with local island charm. There are three grocery stores, about five eateries, a few souvenir shops, a nice marina, and a museum. In the Food Fair Plaza, there is a bank and Internet access shop.

The town has a friendly atmosphere, and many of the locals wave to tourists as they pass by on their golf carts. A golf cart rental is recommended to get around the Russell Island - Spanish Wells area by golf cart to get groceries, go to restaurants, beaches or exploring.

Russell Island near Spanish Wells: Russell Island is about a 4 x 2 mile wide island that connects to the town of Spanish Wells by a small bridge. This area is a little quieter and less crowded than the hustle of the Spanish Wells town. Russell Island has many fruit and palm trees, and you may pass a goat farm on your way to the house. From the Pink Hibiscus Cottage, you have direct ocean access, and you get beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean and other island cays. This is a great place in front for kayaking and snorkeling. Sandy Spanish Wells beach is only a couple blocks by kayak or the near Pierre Rock. Our Caretaker who is a very knowledgeable fisherman can arrange a snorkel, fishing, or local boating excursion, or perhaps a day trip to the mainland. The Ferry from Nassau comes most daily to Spanish Wells at 10:00 am, and you can grab that ferry for a day trip to Harbour Island (Pink Sands Beach & tourist shops), and return back to Spanish Wells - Russell Island in the afternoon.
