Development on Bahamas' Harbour Island moving along

The first phase of construction is nearing completion on Royal Island, a resort and residential community near Harbour Island and four miles west of Eleuthera in the Bahamas.

Completed are three guest suites, a fitness facility and a restaurant in an area called Preview Village. Road construction across the island is under way and the initial clearing of the golf course site began in mid-April.

The 430-acre site will include a five-star, boutique hotel and spa; a 200-slip marina; restaurants, shops and cafes; customs and immigration; beach clubs; a Jack Nicklaus-designed 18-hole golf course and golf club; and luxury private residences.

Construction on the marina, hotel and golf course will begin late this year.

Royal Island is accessible by air via North Eleuthera International Airport or a 10-minute boat ride from Royal Island's private dock house on Eleuthera.

The developer is Cypress Equities, based in Dallas. For details, visit
