Fig Tree News TeamYears ago, the airstrip on Royal Island was granted port of entry status, so yes ... there's an actual runway underneath all of that overgrowth :-). (And then there's the pile of Arawak ceremonial ruins on the northwest edge, not far from what's left of the main house and cottage compound.) Royal's been a diamond in the rough for years now.

HIflyerWas there an airstrip on Royal Island? I've looked the island over from the air many times in the last 26 years and never noticed the slightest hint of there having been a runway.

Fig Tree News TeamThe Preachers Cave Historical Society is off to an excellent start, thanks to the steady efforts of Jock Morgan, Ryan Pinder, Marvin Pinder and local government officials.
At long last, funds have been set aside to refurbish the access road into the cave, preserve the site's legacy as the birthplace of the modern Bahamas, and establish the historic site as a registered anthropological destination.

The on-again, off-again plans to develop lovely Royal Island (just off the northwest tip of North Eleuthera, west of St. George's Cay) appear to be on again, with detailed efforts underway to craft a championship golf course on the 550-acre island and refurbish the aged airstrip already in place.

Congratulations to North Eleuthera local and central government officials and council members for keeping the home fires burning ...
