I visit Eleuthera at least once or twice a year, but lately I have been visiting quite frequently. On this trip I wanted to do something new and interesting and stumbled upon The Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve.
When you first arrive the park officials give you a short overview of the preserve, you can taste test some homemade Bahamian Bush Teas, you are given your maps and tree/plant guide and then you are free to explore.
I knew immediately that i wanted to do the Ethan’s power loop and climb up Ethan’s Tower, which is one of the highest points in the park.
We explored for about an hour stopping at all of the different sections until we finally made it to the Educational Pavilion; we stopped for a rest, had some water and then started our trek to Ethan’s Tower.
After what felt like a never ending walk, we finally made it to the top and trust me that cardio workout was well worth it, Because the 360 view was gorgeous!!
If you are looking for something different to do, I would highly recommend checking Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve out. Overall we spent about 3 hours at the park. Exploring was both fun and educational.
If you are out of shape don’t shy away from experiencing the park, you can explore at your own pace and there are plenty of shady areas with seating for you to rest. Don’t forget to pack your sunblock and hats and remember to have fun!!
Have you visited LLNPP before? What is your favorite thing to do when visiting new places?
