Come experience the bridge that rests over the most beautiful troubled waters. This place is often referred to as the narrowest place on earth. It’s a law-defying juxtaposition of two massive bodies of water meet - but next mixing. One, the dark blue Atlantic, and two, the beautifully calm turquoise Caribbean. This is the Glass Window Bridge, located on the Eleuthera Island of the Bahamas.

What To know about glass bridge & why it's so unique

The Bahamas are not just a beautiful place of sandy beaches and bottles of rum but it’s also home to one of nature's most mysterious and mystical spots. Come experience sites like you’ve never seen and enjoy the amazing curiosity of what nature can do.


This wondrous spot will certainly leave anyone feeling breathless as they soak in the magnificent panoramic view. It’s one of the view places where you can truly compare the rich blue, cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean on one side of the road and the calm and bright of the Caribbean Sea, separated only by a thin strip of rock only 30 feet wide.

There is something truly miraculous about observing the line that separates the Atlantic Ocean from the Caribbean.

This small rock ‘bridge’ is actually man-made these days to replace the natural rock that was washed away by a hurricane several years ago. Before that, a famous American painter named Winslow Homer captured the beauty of this spot in 1895 appropriately naming it “Glass Window”.

The Glass Window Bridge is just north of Gregory Town and connects Gregory Town to Upper Bogue. The rock bridge is very narrow and has steep walls on both sides that crumble down into the ocean below on either side.

You can climb onto the rocks to view one of the amazing wonders that nature has to offer in the division between these two massive bodies of water. Make sure to bring good shoes that are slip-resistant - these rocks can be a bit dangerous to walk on, especially if you’re only wearing flip-flops.

Planning Your Trip to the Glass Window Bridge

When looking for places to stay on Eleuthera Island, consider looking at one of the vacation rentals instead of a local hotel. This will help guarantee you are getting the most bang for your buck on the island. The vacation homes are located in Whale Point Cove, which is a spectacular tropical paradise. You can have amazing views and produce phenomenal photos without ever leaving your private room. These spaces are also located within walking distance to the beach, a perfect place to relax and enjoy after spending as much time as you like learning all the secrets of the Glass Water Bridge.

While on the island everything is reasonably close together making it easy to walk, drive or ride one of their local bikes, depending on your preference. However, Queen’s Highway, which runs the length of Eleuthera, is a skinny road and only about 110 miles long. Be aware of the forces of the waves from the Atlantic side, they can sometimes crash up onto the road. If you’re taking a car - drive carefully.

About a half-mile south of the Glass Window Bridge, there’s another beautiful natural site worth a visit on your trip to Eleuthera Island: The Queen’s Bath.

The Queen’s Bath is a series of natural pools carved into rock after centuries of crashing waves on the wild Atlantic side of Eleuthera.

The surf smashes into the pools for a refreshing dip when the outside temperatures are warm but it never gets too hot. When it gets hotter the pools feel like stepping into a spa made by nature, it’s the perfect temperature.

Both the bridge and the baths are about a 15-minute drive from North Eleuthera Airport during normal travel times, making them easy to connect to for any traveler. The vacation rentals are also close by and can easily help connect you to the best spots for food and nightlife.

In addition to amazing delicious foods, Eleuthera is also packed with the world’s sweetest pineapples. These will be some of the best pineapples you have ever tasted. During your stay on Eleuthera, you’ll find this amazing fruit in everything from desserts to dinners and it adds amazing flavors! You’ll wonder why you never did it before. After a few amazing meals in this town, you’ll learn why it’s nicknamed Pineapple City.

After viewing the fantastic divide between the two massive oceans and the Queen’s pools, head on down to the French Leave Beach. Much like the Pink Sands Beach on Harbor Island Eleuthera, French Leaven Beach has beautiful pink sandboarding on the water on the Caribbean side. This distinctive phenomenon is due to the millions of tiny mollusk shells which sprinkle across the sand. Their bright red color mixes with the white sand to create a beautiful pink hue on the ground.

Plan your most amazing vacation seeing all the wonders that nature has to offer when visiting Eleuthera and the Glass Window Bridge.
