Nobody comes to Eleuthera to visit household-name tourist attractions, but to me this was the most interesting site we visited. Extremely well-presented and maintained. The people who run this place deserve a lot of credit for this most informative exhibit. We walked through for about...More

We absolutely loved visiting the Preserve. It is so well organized and there is so much beauty. We learned so much about the endemic and invasive plants in the Bahamas. It truly takes about two hours to enjoy this place.

The Preserve is a must-see when one goes to Eleuthera. Really happy for tourists to visit it but really it is a place that all Bahamians should take advantage of.

It was a very nice walk through the preserve, and very pretty sight seeing. I wouldn't recommend the walk for the elderly.

The preserve had a lot of information on many local plants and also plants that were introduced by other cultures throughout the islands history. Try to go early in the morning, the afternoon heat made a short hike feel longer.
