Governor's Harbour is centrally located on the 105 mile long island of Eleuthera. It was settled in the 17th century by the Company of Eleutheran Adventurers who came to the Bahamas from England to found the first democratic government in the Western hemisphere.

Today Governors Harbour is picturesque and perfectly nestled in a natural harbour on the Caribbean coastline of the Island. Less than half a mile across the island is the Atlantic coastline, crested with long stretches of shallow coral reefs and world famous powdery pink sand beaches.
