Feature - The Glass Window Bridge

Looking South- The Glass Window Bridge

The Glass Window bridge, located in North Eleuthera was once a natural rock arch. It has been replaced by a man made bridge due to repeated damage from hurricanes and natural erosion. It is a beautiful sight to behold where two oceans meet at the thinnest point of the island. The Glass Window Bridge forms a peephole from west to east with deep blue waters on the Atlantic & the turquoise of the Exuma Sound.

To fully appreciate this breathtaking view you need to do so at sea level. Most people stand on the top of the bridge and admire its beauty from above, but I decided to climb down. Once you make the climb down you will be able to walk under the bridge and have a look at both sides up close. You will litterally be standing on one of the narrowest points on earth. It takes a bit of work to get down (especially if you are short like me) but it is well worth it. Make sure you wear proper shoes a.k.a NOT FLIP FLOPS!!  If you choose to climb down do so at your own risk and make sure you go at low tide. The next time you visit Eleuthera, be sure to stop and experience The Glass Window Bridge! Make sure you take your camera and prepare yourself to be amazed.

Don’t forget to stop and see the Queen’s Bath on your way to The Glass Window Bridge.

  1. Quite the phenomenon isn’t it….seeing the contrasts of sea side and ocean connect….Such marvels get taken for granted or deemed not that significant….but it is quite The sight!
    The island people always boast about there being nothing but water between Eleuthera and Africa….
    Lovely post GWHV!
