Harbour Island Bahamas Travel & Airport Info
North Eleuthera Airport
Traveling to Harbour Island Bahamas is usually done by flying either commercial airlines or air charter flights into North Eleuthera Airport (ELH) from Miami (MIA), Fort Lauderdale (FLL) or Nassau (NAS). One can also take "Bahamas Ferries" from Nassau to Spanish Wells, Eleuthera to Harbour Island.
Once on Eleuthera, it is quick and easy to get to Harbour Island. A 10 minute cab ride from the airport to the boat dock is $5 per person ($10 if just one person), followed by a ten minute "water taxi" ride, $5 per person. Land and water taxis are always available during the day.
For international flights, airlines ask that all passengers check in two hours before their flight as the flight can arrive early or close early -- do not risk losing your seat. North Eleuthera airport is now upgraded with a security checkpoint.
