Eleuthera is a long, slender island with lots of shoreline and good shells to be found thereon. It's best if you snorkel, but you can find some small shells beachcombing.

Though you can stay in housekeeping cottages for less money, I'm opting for a nice motel I've stayed in before. It has a restaurant and there are more around the island.
People in Eleuthera are friendly and helpful. The island is beautiful, with vistas of the sea around just about every corner. There's little to do, though, besides relax and enjoy the sun, water, and shells.
The salt ponds of Eleuthera are famous and unique. Animals that have lived in them for centuries have evolved into different species, and there are at least three species unique to these ponds. There are also 3 inch seahorses in one of them, as well as crabs with very long legs and claws. In this photo, a sea urchin on a discarded engine carries uniquely colored egg cockles.
Here are some photos of shells found in the ponds. pics
