Windermere Island


Sublime Litte Island

Windermere is a small island located just off the east coast of the island of Eleuthera, in The Bahamas. It is about five and a half miles long, and is noted for its beaches and its celebrity visitors, who use it as a private retreat. The island is connected to the larger island of Eleuthera by a short bridge, which is protected by a guardhouse. The adjoining waters and flats of Savannah Sound are considered to be a premier bone fishing location, and Windermere's five-mile long beach is protected by a five-mile long reef which is rich in fish and underwater flora.

The island is populated with private homes and the legendary Windermere Island Club. Famous residents have included Jacques-Yves Cousteau, The Duke and Duchess of Abercorn (James Hamilton, 5th Duke of Abercorn), India Hicks, and The Johnson Family (Lyndon B. Johnson). Members of the British royal family visit the island regularly, often arriving by private Helicopter.  Unspoiled beauty and elegance are what draw the wealthy and discerning to this sublime little island.  Contact H.G. Christie’s Eleuthera Real Estate Offices to see all that Windermere has to offer.
