Best thing to do on the island
What an excellent nature preserve. You enter through a small visitor center where you get a good review of what's on the grounds. Then you can easily take off on your own without any guide. Each area has thorough, informative signage, and of course the plants sport name signs as well. You can tour a mangrove forest, fresh water basin, orchids, native plans, non-native plants, medicinal plants, cash plants, poisonour plants, plus enjoy a 360 degree view of the island from a small observation tower. Everything about the preserve is well-thought out and well-maintained. Plan on a good 2 hours, more if you really want to dive into the info and walk all of the trails. Who knew Eleuthera's red soil blew over the Atlantic from the Sahara Desert? Best experience on Eleuthera.
