Spanish Wells cottage description

Pink Sands Beach Cottage is a very beautiful new beach cottage with a direct access to a breathtaking pink sandy beach. Most of the times you will be alone, and if it gets crowded, you may have two to six people around ... 2.5 miles of stunning beach. On this part of this beach, at low tide, the ocean is a magnificent turquoise lagoon.
The cottage is ideally situated. Everything is within walking distance: supermarket, bakery, restaurant, bank, ATM machine, doctor, pharmacy...
Our caretakers will kindly pick you up at the harbour and drive you to the cottage.
This old-fashioned looking cottage gives visitors to Spanish Wells a real taste of island living. Located on quiet Saint George's Cay, this heaven is the perfect place for relaxation, for honeymooners, a romantic getaway, a quiet family vacation or if you just want to get away from the world for a while.


Spanish Wells, a prosperous island: Spanish Wells is considered one of the most quaint, clean, and prosperous islands in the Bahamas. It offers a rich history and old world and out island charm, and, yet, is very civilized. Spanish Wells is the envy of Eleuthera, The Bahamas, and even the region. It is part of the well known Eleuthera island.

The population is predominantly white native Bahamians, many of which are descendants of the first British settlers from the 1600's or Loyalists from the 1700's. People speak English, with a British accent. Spanish Wells is not a 'touristy' island.

Spanish Wells is prosperous, clean, safe, and beautiful. Spanish Wells is a neat and clean little town with most homes sporting a fresh coat of pastel paint, a real island getaway. Spanish Wells is reminiscent of an idyllic Cape Cod fishing village with swaying coconut palm trees and bright bougainvillea as background.

Spanish Wells offers everything you need: Spanish Wells has beautiful pink and white sand beaches, and water so clear that you can see your shadow on the bottom. Stretching from Spanish Wells to the northeast tip of mainland Eleuthera is a beautiful barrier reef called the Devil's Backbone which is inhabited with an abundance of marine life. This area is fantastic for snorkelers, and fishermen usually find that grouper and snapper are plentiful in this area. One mile off shore, there's great sport fishing. There's world-class bone fishing on the flats surrounding the island. One can walk around the island, wade for sand dollars on the North beach, purchase the fresh catch of the day from local fishermen, and browse the centuries-old village.

Spanish Wells offers 3 supermarkets, a bakery, 7 restaurants or take away (which serve native Bahamian and American dishes at reasonable prices), a bar and liquor store, a medical clinic, a museum, 4 variety stores; and of course, you can purchase fresh fish and lobster!

Ideal temperatures all year round: Winter temperatures are generally in the 70's during the day and drop to the 60's at night. Summer daytime temperatures are generally in the 80's and drop to the 70's at night.
