The settlement of Rock Sound was originally called New Portsmouth. At one stage it was also called Wreck Sound, because of the wrecking of ships out on the reefs. Many feel that Rock Sound is very appropriate, because of a large rock located between the ocean and the sound.

It is the major settlement in South Eleuthera and home to an international airport and several government offices. You can also visit the world famous Ocean Hole, an inland saltwater natural phenomenon that has attracted much attention from visitors and locals alike, including the famous Jacques Cousteau.
