Official Eleuthera Harbour Island brings you information on the Glass Window Bridge.
One of Eleuthera’s more popular attractions is the Glass Window Bridge where you can find the phenomenal contrast between the dark blue Atlantic Ocean and the calm turquoise waters of Caribbean Sea. The bridge is located in the northern part of Eleuthera connecting Gregory Town and Lower Bogue.
This site is often referred to as the “narrowest place on Earth” with only 30 feet wide at its narrowest point. It was once a natural bridge made of rocks. After a hurricane destroyed the place, men reconstructed the bridge. The Glass Window Bridge with its magnificent panoramic view will no disappoint you!
If you would like to make the most of this attraction, wear comfortable shoes with good grip and hike around the area. Enjoy the public beach along the calm waters of the Caribbean side. Keep in mind that there are no restrooms located on site nor a designated parking area so please plan ahead and use caution.
Another precaution would be to check the weather report. Rogue waves from the Atlantic Ocean have been known to unexpectedly wash over the bridge. The lack of surrounding reefs along the ocean side offers no barriers for these waves. At times, they have been known to hit the bridge with great force. This has caused people as well as automobiles to be washed out into the ocean.
If you make it out to visit Glass Window Bridge, please take necessary precautions but above all, don’t forget your camera… you will definitely want to document your amazing experience.
