GEOLOGY  OF  ELEUTHERA  ISLAND,  BAHAMAS 

 

Eleuthera Island (looking NNW) - this 110 mile long, up-to-2-miles-wide island is located in the northeastern part of the Great Bahama Bank.  The lakes at right are just northwest of Gregory Town.  The elongated island at upper left is Harbour Island.  The very narrow neck at left is Glass Window.  The dark blue water in the background is the Atlantic Ocean.  The turquoise-colored water in the foreground is Exuma Sound.

 


 

Eleuthera Island (satellite photo) is a very narrow, linear-arcuate island.  Several other Bahamian islands also have this general geometry, such as Great Abaco, Great Exuma, Cat Island, and Long Island.
