The goal of raising children is no small feat. Mother’s Day provides an amazing opportunity to carve out time to celebrate the women who dedicate themselves to caring for and loving us. While moms everywhere appreciate the small gestures of gratitude, this year, why not consider going bigger? When you’re looking for a place packed with scenic beauty, amazing fun and incredible moments made to pamper mom, Eleuthera checks every box on the list.
This stunning piece of the Bahamian archipelago is loved by surf enthusiasts for its pristine waves and adored by beachgoers for its long shoreline boasting pink sands. Whether your mom is enchanted by time spent soaking up the sun or leans more towards the adventurous side of life, Eleuthera is a place that promises to satisfy. Here are a few stops you’ll need to add to the itinerary when planning the perfect Mother’s Day getaway to exciting Eleuthera.
The Queen’s Bath
When you’re visiting Eleuthera in celebration of mom, make sure to begin your Mother’s Day excursion at The Queen’s Bath. Your mother is sure to feel like royalty when you make time to indulge in the scenic waters this area provides. Located off Queen’s Highway and the Glass Window Bridge, the drive to this destination is just as breathtaking as the final stop. A thin strip of land separates the Atlantic from the Caribbean Sea into sections of vibrant blue and turquoise. Within this divide lies The Queen’s Bath on the Atlantic side. Natural rock formations fed by hot springs, this stop is almost surreal when the tide is right. Bring a beach towel and come soak up the sun in the warm, bubbly waters provided by nature herself. When the tide rises, move to higher ground and watch the impressive waves crash over the stone tubs for a follow-up show you won’t soon forget.
Edwin’s Turtle Lake Marine Reserve
The marine life that calls Eleuthera home is just as impressive as the many landmarks this island offers up. If your mom has a heart for creatures large and small, make your second Mother’s Day getaway stop at Edwin’s Turtle Lake Marine Reserve. This is the perfect place when you’re in the mood to experience an encounter with green sea turtles, tropical fish and an amazing array of birds. Feel free to enjoy the view from the sand or dock or rent a kayak or paddle board and get out on the water for a closer look. Rentals are available on an hourly or daily basis upon request.
Ocean Tally Bar and Grill
Mother’s Day is best topped off on a sweet note and there’s no better place to do that on Eleuthera than Ocean Tally Bar and Grill. Located at Whale Point Drive, this beautiful ocean-side restaurant is part of a larger bed and breakfast. Floor to ceiling windows and beautiful stone-accented décor provide the perfect setting from which to enjoy sweeping views out over the Atlantic as you wine and dine mom. Choose to sit indoors or outside on the patio but wherever you land, you won’t want to miss out on Ocean Tally’s famous hand-crafted cocktails. Decadent seafood selections and friendly staff make this one of the most well-loved restaurants on Eleuthera and a place you’ll want to make sure tops your Mother’s Day itinerary.
