Spanish Wells

Spanish Wells, Bahamas, arial shot.Quaint, beautiful, picturesque, just a few terms that come to mind as I consider Spanish Wells. It is a small island just off the northern tip of Eleuthera. Spanish Wells is approximately one square mile with a population just shy of 2000.

The primary industry of the island is fishing, but there are many other services available on the island basically in support of the fishing.

There is a cottage tourist industry on the island. Vacation rentals reflecting the spirit of Spanish Wells are available, some just steps from the beautiful beaches of the island. Once you spend a week on Spanish Wells I’d be willing to bet it won’t be your last visit to this jewel of an island.
