what to bring: People ask us all the time… *BRING: Flashlights: Let there be light. The main pathways in the lodge are lit, but it’s a big space and lighting every pathway perfectly isn’t really a viable option. Flashlights can come in handy at the lodge, or for exploring the beaches late at night. Also, while the power rarely goes out in Eleuthera, a flashlight can be useful in the rare chance power is out on the island. Beach Towel: You know, for beaches. We provide towels for the shower , but we kindly ask that you leave our towels at the lodge. Bring a beach towel to explore Eleuthera. sneakers for hiking, water shoes (good for the rocky beaches and the Bat Caves) Bug spray and sunscreen are available on the island, but we recommend Reef safe sunscreens.

We are located off a rocky path and heavy roller bags will have a hard time.
