Governor's Harbour is one of the easier destinations in the Bahamas to get to, with direct international air service with a couple of well-known air carriers available several times a week. The ease of travel just adds to the list of perks that come with planning a vacation in this laid back town.

Governor's Harbour is located on the island of Eleuthera, upon which there are three different airports. Those staying in this town are best served by flying to the Governor's Harbour Airport (GHB), lest they have to spend 45 minutes driving in either direction from one of the other airports.

Governor's Harbour Airport is a small facility, featuring just an 8,025 foot long asphalt runway, a snack bar, and a customs office. To get to this airport, you'll be able to fly direct from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida with Silver Airlines and on occasion United Airlines. Most tourists; however, end up flying though the Lynden Pindling International Airport on New Providence and switching to a plane run by domestic airline BahamasAir.
