When it comes to vacation destinations that authentically inspire visitors to get out and explore the great outdoors, it’s hard to ignore the appeal of Harbour Island and Eleuthera. As part of the greater Bahamas archipelago, these small pieces of paradise offer up much in the way of outdoor adventure and fun. From snorkeling and surfing to time on the sand and savoring the sights during a hike, this part of the Bahamas is bound to be an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. However, when faced with a rainy day or the need to socially distance from the crowds, these areas are known for a variety of fun indoor things to do in the Bahamas to enjoy too. Here are a few ideas to make your next trip this way even more exciting!

A&A Hidden Treasures

Step inside this locally-owned Harbour Island highlight that has made a name for itself as a premier provider of all things gifts and souvenirs. Handmade Bahamian crafts are displayed in style and guests are invited to browse everything from straw bags and hats to home goods and décor that are crafted exclusively from coconut and seashells. Custom designs can be created upon request at A&A Hidden Treasures in Dunmore Town.

Princess Street Gallery

Located on Princess Street in Dunmore Town, Princess Street Gallery is an iconic stop on Harbour Island that caters to the traveler with a heart for all things art and creativity. Stop on in and enjoy browsing a collection of sculptures, paintings, and prints that are available for purchase or simply enjoying. Many of the items on display are the work of local artists and bring outdoor scenery to life in vibrant and eye-catching colors.

Haynes Library

Easy to identify thanks to its pink façade complete with charming teal shutters, the Haynes Library in Eleuthera is a great place to stop in and one of the top fun things to do in the Bahamas. Originally built in 1897, a stop in at the Haynes Library is also a good way to get up close with historic island architecture during your stay.
