One of nature’s true wonders, The Glass Window Bridge will certainly leave you breathless as you drink in the stunning panoramic view. It is one of the few places on earth where you can compare the rich blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean on one side of the road and the calm turquoise-green waters of the Exuma Sound (Caribbean Sea) on the other side, separated by a strip of rock just 30 feet wide.

The"Bridge" is about two miles east of Upper Bogue and joins Gregory Town and Lower Bogue at the narrowest point on the island. The land here is high on both sides, falling away abruptly to nearly sea level, almost dividing the island in two. A bridge on its topside connects the northern and southern points of Eleuthera by a paved road.
