Lighthouses and Ghosts

Many consider moving to the Bahamas for its subtropical climate, which usually falls between 77 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year. Others may reconsider due to the hurricanes.

Located on the southern tip of Eleuthera, an island along the northeastern portion of the Grand Bahama Bank. The lighthouse was built sometime around the turn of the 20th century.

According to the legend, one of the lighthouse’s first keepers, a local sorcerer by the name Captain Finby, was visited each night by a ghost called “The White Lady.” 

Haunted House of Harbour Island

Located in the southern part of Harbour Island, next to the Harbour Island Marina and Aquapazza Restaurant. The haunted house with a chilling history awaits visitors.

With the locals telling the story of a beautiful, young, newlywed couple who moved into the home after their wedding. They had an argument that led to the disappearance. They said the bride left upset, and the groom following shortly afterward. Neither returned, leaving everything, including a table set perfectly for dinner.

With sightings of two white figures roaming the home, there’s no doubt this is a location worth visiting.
