The northern part of Eleuthera Island is separated from the rest of the island by a thin isthmus of land, known as the Glass Window Bridge. Originally, the “Glass Window” was a natural bridge that defined the partition between the Atlantic Ocean and the waters of the Caribbean. From the bridge you can see the phenomenal contrast between the dark blue of the Atlantic Ocean and the azure of the overly calm waters of the Caribbean.
Today, an artificial bridge has replaced the natural arch that was blown away during the storm 150 years ago.
Care must be taken when visiting the bridge and the surrounding areas and cliffs. In the area of the bridge there are unexpected raids of waves. The strongest waves spill over the bridge and nearby rocks. There have been cases when not only people were washed away into the ocean, but also vehicles.
