If you like history this is a must for you when on Eleuthera. If you don't like history the beach is pretty amazing here too. It is worth the drive.

This is a must see when in Eleuthera. The site is beyond amazing. It is incredible. We had a taxi give us a tour and this was one of the stops on the way. Our taxi was Scorpio.
