Spanish Wells has a rich history, making this charming community desirable for travelers interested in experiencing the spirit of this captivating city. The village natives are descendants of original Eleutheran Adventurers and Loyalists, who were known for their seamanship. The original inhabitants of Spanish Wells were either British settlers from the 1600s, or Loyalists from the 1700s, bringing over the English language spoken with a British accent. These settlers also brought the quaint New England style architecture that is still around today.
Now, Spanish Wells is a destination for world-class bone fishing and snorkeling. A widely known spot in the Spanish Wells is the Devil’s Backbone barrier reef. Home to many shipwrecks, including The William dating back to 1648, and the USS Boston in 1846, this snorkeling adventure is a history lesson of its own. This reef is now known as “snorkeler’s paradise,” and is home to stingrays, moray eels, and a variety of coral formations.
