The mangrove-lined creeks of Winding Bay, on Eleuthera, provide quiet sanctuary for sea turtles of varying ages. Kayak at high tide through the canal connecting Winding Bay to Half Sound, and you can float close enough to reach out and touch them (but don't). There are several private rental homes lining the almost-two-mile stretch of beach at Winding Bay that offer laid-back comfort and luxury; staying at one is a good idea if you want to explore the area.
