Named for Leon Levy, a Bahamian with an interest in Eleuthera's plant life, this lush oasis is filled with native flora, ranging from ferns and orchids to mangroves and cactuses. All can be viewed from the miles of trails that weave throughout the 25-acre national park.
Described by former visitors as a "beautiful" Bahamian gem, this outdoor paradise beckons to vacationers and locals. Although the preserve's breathtaking grounds are the highlight here, travelers were equally impressed with the property's friendly, knowledgeable staff, adding that paying for a guided tour is well worth the extra expense.
The Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. A visit to the national park costs $10 for adults, $8 for seniors (ages 60 and older) and $6 for children younger than 13. Guided tours can also be provided for an additional charge, but advance bookings are required. On-site facilities include a welcome center, a gift shop and an open-air pavilion for kids educational programs. To reach the preserve, visitors will need to drive or take a taxi 2 ½ miles southeast of central Governor's Harbour. The property is located off of Banks Road. Check out the park's website for additional information.
