Eleuthera’s Best-Kept Secret Has The Coolest New Rooms in The Bahamas

By: Alexander Britell and Guy Britton - March 23, 2024

“It’s one of those places where you just feel a connection,” he says. 

Past the old fairways, tucked beyond the casuarinas, is High Rock. It’s an outcropping of ironshore perched above the clearest blue water you’ll ever see. 

People come here and they jump, a light crash into the water that’s deeper than it looks. Then they climb back up and do it again. 

Justin Dubowitz has been coming here for two decades, pulled by an almost mystical feeling. 

Dubowitz has been in the yachting industry most of his life, and he’s been everywhere. Here, High Rock, hidden away inside the massive, 4,500-acre Cape Eleuthera resort at the southern corner of the island, is unique in the world. 

High Rock is a popular jumping spot, hidden away at the edge of the pine trees.

“It’s just a special place,” he says.

Cape Eleuthera remains something of a closely-guarded secret in The Bahamas: a boutique resort and a marina that’s just a short boat ride away from some of the best fishing in the hemisphere. 

It’s a legendary place, one that has been through decades of boldfaced names and bolder adventure, a haven for those looking for that perfect blend of escape and expedition. 

“It’s just the expanse of it,” says Dubowitz, who serves as general manager along with his wife, Kat, helping to steward the property and its unique brand of hospitality. “Lots of resorts have an acre of densely-situated buildings. This is 4,500 acres — and there’s nowhere you can’t go.”

Indeed, Cape Eleuthera has everything: stunning sandbars just offshore, myriad, nearly empty beaches; the empty fairways of a golf course from another age — now filled with an increasing number of beautiful villas. 

But there’s something new at Cape Eleuthera, something that’s just as special. 

The resort just debuted Sunset Beach, an almost hotel-within-a-hotel that’s a collection of bungalows and suites set directly on the sand — sleek and comfortable on the inside, perched right on one of the Cape’s marvelous beaches.

It’s the newest iteration of a legendary resort and another compelling reason to come here and see the kind of undiscovered charm for which the Out Islands of The Bahamas — and Eleuthera in particular — are famous.

They’re the most exciting new hotel rooms in The Bahamas: you step out of your room, walk onto the sand, and you feel the connection. 

It’s just a special place, as it always has been.
