French Leave

French Leave Eleuthera, Bahamas
Nestled between magnificent coral reefs protecting its shore, surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters and swaying coconut palm trees, is the one of most beautiful pink sand beaches and picturesque harbors in the world. All located on one of the most beautiful islands in all of the Bahamas.

The Island is Eleuthera.

The resort is French Leave.

French Leave

Perfectly elevated to capture the crisp tropical breezes, the integrity of the tropical architecture epitomizes why French Leave is the exception, a one of a kind.

French Leave Eleuthera is so well regarded for what is not. There are no casinos, no cruise ships, no constant turnstile of flights carrying thousands of tourists. Our location boasts beautiful un-crowded pink sand beaches, azure blue waters, friendly people, and great local dining and shopping experiences. Absent are the chain restaurants and tourist trap stores and the bright lights and crowds that follow. When night falls here, you can see more stars in an evening than one might see in a lifetime. This is for stargazers the “Dark Sky Paradise” and with perfect year round weather, the season is anytime.

French Leave Eleuthera seeks to be a part of this incredible environment, not change it.

Our resort is designed for very low density, the least possible environmental impact, traditional Bahamian architecture, and traditional Bahamian values. French Leave Eleuthera remains today one of the Bahamas & Caribbean’s best kept secrets and is that special place, for all the right reasons.

If you want to experience the extraordinary, it may take a little more time and effort to get here. Once you get here, you will never question why you came.

The island of Eleuthera (meaning “freedom” in Greek) was home to adventurers long ago who sought religious self-determination when they fled Bermuda in 1648, and since established what is thought to be the first true Democracy in the Western Hemisphere. Over the years the island has become a landmark holiday spot as well as preferred retreat of the rich and famous.
