Details of Get Away From It All At Cartwrights Ocean Front, Eleuthera, Bahamas, Bahamas Vacation Rentals Details for Get Away From It All At Cartwrights Ocean Front

Surrounding Area

Cartwrights Ocean Front Cottages is located on the edge of a small, quiet fishing town called Tarpum Bay, on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. The cottages are located just 50 feet from the calm, clear waters of Exuma Sound. Directly in front of the cottages, magnificent sunsets can be watched from the patios. There is a staircase immediately in front of the cottages, that leads to the water's edge for swimming and snorkeling. Just a minute's walk from the cottages, small fishing piers market freshly caught seafood (fish, conch, lobster), which is available almost daily. At the cottages, around 2-3 pm daily, the guests can watch the local fishing boats motor up with fresh caught seafood for sale on the local docks, at bargain prices. Just west of the cottages, the rugged coastline offers the opportunity for hikers/ adventure seekers to explore the undeveloped coast for miles. Just a minute's walk, east of the cottages, a four mile stretch of white powder sand beach offers excellent picnic areas, with breezy casurina trees shading quiet beach areas. Within a 15 mile radius of the cottages, there are a number of white and pink sand beaches on both the Atlantic and Caribbean side of the island, which offer great swimming, snorkeling and picnic opportunities. It is the usual thing to go to the beaches, and find no one else there. Local food stores and small restaurants, offering american and local cuisine/ dishes, are located within the town of Tarpum Bay, within walking distances of the cottages. There are a number of other eateries within a 15 mile radius of the cottages.
In the next door town of Rock Sound, just 7 miles from the cottages, a visit the Blue Ocean Hole is a "must". Located within the heart of the town, the ocean hole is filled with sea water, the level of which rises and falls with the tide. National Geographic has explored the hole on a few dives, and it has been said that the hole is "bottomless". There is an underground tunnel which leads to/ from the sea, and the hole is filled with sea-life, including a variety of tropical fish, and now and then, a turtle can be spotted. The fish gather at the entrance to the Blue Hole, upon the sound of approaching visitors, in anticipation of being fed. They literally eat the bread right out of your hand.
