The Cove, Eleuthera

Gregory Town, Bahamas

With beach cottages clustered around the property's 40 secluded acres, the Cove on the island of Eleuthera is a resplendent getaway that recently underwent a huge renovation. Reborn with more luxury, the resort is named because of its rocky cape that separates 2 coves. The resulting beaches and calm waters are perfect for snorkeling, while the Sunset Bar, which is built into the rocks, offers a blissful afternoon haven. At night, retire to your private ocean- or garden-view cottage and revel in the simple pleasure of absolute silence.
