The Preacher's Cave

North Eleuthera – Things to see

Official Eleuthera Harbour Island brings you information on the Preacher’s Cave.

The Preacher’s cave is where the British started their settlement when they arrived in Eleuthera, Bahamas. “Eleuthera” comes from a Greek word “eleutheria” meaning freedom. The British settlers came here to flee religious persecution and start life anew.

This refuge, the Preacher’s Cave, helped them plant the seeds for a new nation and bring civilization to this island. 


The cave is located at the Eleuthera’s northern tip; you can reach it by taking a car or a tour bus. You can see pink sand beaches just next to the cave, which is hard to miss.

The Preacher's Cave

Many travelers mark this destination as a must-see for historical perspective. You can also enjoy the view and the pink beach to relax. Tourists especially love the hole in the ceiling, giving a friendly vibe to your journey and a must for photos. 

Most travelers include this cave as part of their trip to the Sapphire Hole. We recommend you to put some anti mosquito lotion on your body, you will find a lot of mosquitos that can make the journey a bit unpleasant.
