Gun Point is an exclusive tropical hideaway located at the northern tip of the mainland of the island of Eleuthera, in The Bahamas. Surrounded by natural deep waters, beautiful reefs and gorgeous sandy white beaches. The property covers more than eighty-five acres of coconut palm groves, lush vegetation, coral outcrops and numerous beaches. The property also contains a native farm producing seasonal local fruit and vegetables.
Gun Point was originally owned by Lord Beaverbrook, who, as a reward for his assistance during World War II, was given the opportunity to name any place he would wish to own as a gift from the Crown. He chose Gun Point and inhabited it for many years.
Eleuthera was home to the first Loyalist Settlers in the Bahamas and the island runs north to south for a hundred miles. Settlements abound, each with its own festivals and flavours. Resorts, restaurants, boutiques and lounges dot the winding road that follows the length of the island.
Gun Point is minutes by boat from Spanish Wells, a quaint fishing settlement with various retail establishments, restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores and shopping.
Your Gun Point vacation can be as relaxing as you wish it to be if you want to be on your own to leisurely sun bathe, swim or snorkel the local reefs, abundant with tropical fish. Some of the best Deep Sea Fishing in the Bahamas is in this area and many of the largest fish caught worldwide were captured on the nearby Dutch Bar. Bonefish are abundant and fly or reef fishing is an exhilarating challenge to any angler. Several Dive centers in the area offer superb diving for the novice to the expert. Tours, Excursions, Fishing Trips, Diving Trips and boat rentals can be arranged in Spanish Wells. Assistance in arrangements will be accommodated by our Rental Agent.
