Message from The Minister of Tourism & Aviation

TO ELEUTHERA

Hon. Dionisio D’Aguilar, MP Eleuthera distinguishes itself as one of the islands of The Bahamas with the highest repeat visitor rate. What is it about Eleuthera that keeps visitors coming back again and again? The answer can be found in the many charms of this idyllic island that lies (80km) east of Nassau: in the its fascinating topography of rocky bluffs and low-lying wetlands; its massive coral reefs; its 350 plus years of colorful history, and in the warm hospitality of its people. The people of Eleuthera are proud of their island’s unique place in the history of The Bahamas. They boast of their island being the birthplace of The Bahamas, and history bears out this fact. In 1648, Puritan Pilgrims arrived from Bermuda in search of religious freedom. The group, known as the “Eleutherian Adventurers,” settled on the island of Eleuthera and gave the island its current name Eleuthera which means “freedom” in Greek. The group was led by William Sayle, a former Governor of Bermuda. There is so much to explore in Eleuthera: a 110-mile-long mainland island dotted from north to south with picturesque towns and villages, and two small islands offshore at its northern end, the resort island —Harbour Island, with its world famous three-mile pink sand beach and Spanish Wells, a quaint fishing village. Sites not to be missed in Eleuthera include Preacher’s Cave, the Hatchet Bay Cave, the Glass Window Bridge, Ocean Hole, the Queens Bath/Hot Tubs, the Cliffs, Pink Sand Beaches and the Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve. Eleuthera is also home to more than seventeen Home Coming Festivals annually, including the Rock Sound Homecoming, Bay Fest, Pineapple Festival and Governors Harbour Festival. With so much to explore, visitors to Eleuthera turn to a trusted publication, the Eleuthera Visitors’ Guide, for advice on all there is to see, do and experience; where to stay and where to dine. I join with the people of Eleuthera in welcoming you to their island, a special place where you’ll feel at home right away. Warm Regards,

Hon. Dionisio D’Aguilar, MP Minister of Tourism & Aviation

what to do

long and has become an integral part of the community. Spanish Wells is predominantly a fishing village, and is rightly referred to as the fishing capital of The Bahamas, the chain of islands of which it is a vital part. The main catch harvested from the sea by the fishermen is the Bahamian lobster, or crawfish as it is referred to by the islanders.

J

ust to the west of the northern tip of the island of Eleuthera is St. George’s Cay. The entire cay, or island, is comprised of the settlement of Spanish Wells, and as a result the name Spanish Wells has become synonymous with the island. In fact, many have never heard it referred to by any other name. Spanish Wells is approximately two miles long and a half of a mile wide. The scope of Spanish Wells is extended, however, by a bridge that links it to neighboring Russell Island, which is just over three miles

Eleuthera Visitors’ Guide

Although the majority of employment comes from the crawfishing industry, it does not mean that other employment and business opportunities are not available. Spanish Wells is an innovative community with a


what to do

wide array of products and services available. Everything needed to carry out normal day to day operation can be obtained on the island. This affords those that are not inclined to fishing to pursue a career in areas such as construction, mechanics, farming, and various shopkeeping and clerical jobs. The locals take great pride in their island. The mindset of the island as a whole seems to be one of preventive maintenance. This is reflected in the way they upkeep not only their houses, but also the fishing fleet. The lawns are well manicured and gardens add their beauty to almost every home. By and large, the town has a very charming and inviting appeal. It is this that not only keeps the residents from leaving, but also keeps the visitors coming back for more. Excerpted from: http://www.myspanishwells.com

Cay Dock in Nassau What to do: Rent a cart and explore this quaint, quiet and beautiful island. Enjoy deep sea and bonefishing or just hangout with the locals.

Here you can step back in time while viewing old photos of bygone era and examine artifacts dating back over one hundred years.

How to Get Here: Fly into North Eleuthera Int’l Airport then take a taxi to Jean’s Bay Ferry dock then take a ferry to Spanish Wells or take Bo Hengy at Potters

Caribbean artists are known for their vibrant, provocative pieces, and Bahamian artists are no exception. They draw inspiration from a plethora of sources, from our harrowing colonial past to the awe-inspiring beauty of our natural landscape. It is not uncommon to find everyday items transformed into works of high art through the use of straw,

wood, and sand. Many artists employ traditional media like pastels, acrylics, and oil paints, creating grand portraits of Bahamian nymphs, blooming scenes of Poinciana and yellow elder, and mixed compositions of the human form and shells. But Bahamian artisans also show off their creative roots by sewing luxurious handbags and hand-printing cloth in the form of Androsia.

The Old Silos

Built in 1930’s these silos (stone cylindrical structures) have withstood many hurricanes. The silos are what are left of an agricultural history where the Hatchet Bay Plantation provided poultry products to the entire Bahamas. These silos were used for storing food for the animals and were owned by the Hatchet Bay Plantation.

Investment Guidelines The International Persons Landholding Act passed in 1993 made it easier for non-Bahamians and companies under their control to own property. 1. A non-Bahamian or permanent resident who purchases or acquires an interest in a condominium or property to be used by him as a single family dwelling or for construction of such dwelling must apply to the secretary to the Investment Board to register the purchase following completion of the purchase. 2. Upon receipt of the above the acquisition is registered and a certificate of registration issued. 3. A permit to acquire property is required as a pre-condition to completion of the purchase if the property is undeveloped land and the purchaser would become the owner of two or more contiguous acres. A permit is also required in cases where property being purchased is not for use as a single family dwelling (for example if the purchaser is buying a resort, restaurant or other commercial venture). 4. Non-Bahamians who own homes in The Bahamas may apply to the director of immigration for an annual home owner’s residence card. This entitles the owner, spouse and dependent children to enter and remain in The Bahamas for the duration of the validity of the card. This is intended to facilitate entry but does not confer resident status. All applications for permits along with fees made payable to the Public Treasury should be submitted to the Ministry of Financial Services & Investments for consideration by the Investment Board.

Real Property Tax

In respect of owner-occupied property up to $250,000...........................................................exempt $250,000 - $500,000.......................................................75 % $500,0001 - $500,000.00.................................................. 1% $500,000.00 +................................................................. .25% Vacant land owned by non-Bahamians First $7,000.....................................................................$100 Over $7,000.................................................................1 1/2% In respect of any other property: Commercial First $500,000.................................................................... 1% Over $500,000.................................................................. 2%

Other Fees

The lawyer who prepares the conveyance typically charges a fee of 21/2% of the sale price. Real estate agents charge a 6% commission on the sale of developed and 10% undeveloped residential or commercial property.

Fee Schedule

Certificate of Registration fee........................ ……$250.00 Permit Fee................................................................. $500.00 Annual home owner’s residence card........................................................... $250.00

What is Stamp Duty?

Although there are no taxes on capital gains, inheritance, corporate and personal income, dividends and interest in The Bahamas there are Real Property Tax and Stamp Duty. A one time Stamp Duty is payable on real estate transactions calculated on the value of property which is not always the sale price and is a prerequisite to having your ownership registered.

The Government Stamp Tax

Up to & Including Stamp Duty $0-$20,000.00.................................................................... 4% $20,000.01-$50,000.00..................................................... 6% $50,000.01-$100,000.00................................................... 8% $100,000.01-$250,000.00............................................... 10% Over $250,000.00............................................................ 12% In property sales the vendor and the purchaser each pay half the Stamp Duty unless otherwise agreed.
