I notice there are three airports in Eleuthera. Which airport is the best to fly into if we are going to Harbour Island? Then how do I get to King’s View

North Eleuthera Airport (call letters “ELH”).  It is a two minute taxi ride from the airport, to Three Island Dock ($5 per person).  There are always Taxi Drivers on hand to take you but if you wish to pre-reserve then call Fine Threads on (242) 359-7780.  Ask him if he has any fresh produce to pick up as his farm supplies many of the wonderful restaurants on Harbour Island.  His fresh Tomatoes are second to none.

At Three Island Dock you pick up a quick water taxi from there DIRECT to King’s View on Harbour Island ($10 per person).
