Flights & Ferries to Eleuthera
Some great sites for air fare comparisons and purchases to the Bahamas can be found at TraVerus Travel, Expedia.com, Travelocity.com, and Orbitz.com. Hotwire.com also has great deals when available, and individual airlines will sometimes give you a better rate if you contact them directly. If booking your own flights, we always recommend non-island guests of Bahama Villa to fly directly into Governors Harbour (GHB) from either Miami (MIA) or Ft. Lauderdale (FLL). As of this writing, Twin Air and Lynx Air are the best carriers for both reliability and cost.
