Area Info
World famous Harbour Island is the ideal vacation destination for pink sand beaches, diving and unique, luxurious resorts.
Known simply as Briland to its residents, Harbour Island is often is called the Nantucket of the Caribbean. The colorfully painted New England-style architecture on the island beautifully compliments the lush palms trees, flower-lined streets and pink sand beaches. This tiny world famous (and world class) island is a vacation magnet for the rich and famous, savvy travelers and beach vacation seekers alike.

Approximately 3.5 miles long and only 1.5 miles wide, Harbour Island is located just off the tip of Eleuthera, separated by a narrow channel. Regular ferry service shuttles resort and hotels guests as well as daily visitors from North Eleuthera for a day of exploring and shopping the picturesque village of Dunmore Town.

One of the oldest settlements in The Bahamas, Dunmore Town dates back to the 18th century. It was formerly the capital of The Bahamas and second only to Nassau in importance. Dunmore Town was once the summer home of the Royal Governor, Earl of Dunmore ''' hence the name.

Harbour Island is famous for its three-mile-long pink beach that runs the entire length of the island on its eastern side. The beach is protected by an outlying coral reef that makes the turquoise clear water one of the safest and most alluring swimming and snorkeling spots in The Bahamas. Adventure vacationers can also seek out these waters for great diving opportunities. Current Cut, for example, offers one of the most thrilling high-current dives in the Caribbean.

Harbour Island was ranked 'The Best Island in the Caribbean by Travel Leisure magazine and readers of the elite travel magazine rated this tiny gem of The Bahamas Out Islands number one among the islands of the Caribbean, Bahamas and Bermuda.

Harbour Island is rich with historical landmarks and natural attractions.

Famous Pink Sands Beach is located on the Atlantic Ocean side of Harbour Island. The sand is a delicate shade of rosy pink, which comes from insects, not coral as most people assume. The red shells of the microscopic insects foraminifera, a single-cell organism in the ocean that live on the underside of reefs and the sea floor, are responsible for the pink sand. After the insects die, the waves smash the shells which wash ashore along with white sand and coral. Horseback riding on Pink Sands Beach is a popular activity for honeymooners.

For a little bit of history, visit Loyalist Cottage, a wonderful example of loyalist architecture, Commissioner 's Residence built in 1913, St. John 's Anglican Church built in 1768, as well as the Chapel Street cemetery containing ancient graves.

A hidden overgrown 17th century battery built by the English to defend the island can be found at the southern end of Bay Street. Cannons, called Roundheads, can still be seen at this site.

If you 're interested in mysteries, you should visit the Lone Tree. Some say it was once an almond tree, while others say it 's a species of pine. Regardless, everyone seems to agree that it arrived in Harbour Island after Hurricane Andrew in 1992. How it arrived is up for debate though. Some say it slid down a nearby hill while others say it was blown over from a nearby Island. Curiously enough, the tree arrived upright and during high tides, it even moves around a bit.

This house is everything as described and more! Minutes from gorgeous beach, full cooking facilites, spacious, and the owner has furnished the house with everything you could possibly think of. From taxi drivers to get us to the house to how to rent a golf cart, with owner's assistance, nothing was a problem. Free phone lines to US, computer hookup, beach chairs..I just can't say enough. We'll stay there every time we visit Harbour Island!! - Hunt Family, Connecticut

We want to share our experience with "Little Arches" a private rental on Harbour Island. There are 3 units in one house. We stayed in the Studio. Everything worked out wonderfully. Kim gave us directions in advance. Reggie the cab driver is very personable and we also rented a golf cart which he delivered to us. We really appreciated the high speed wireless connection. Kim, the owner, was in touch with us all along. She provided some great tips for us about where to go, etc. She seems very nice and like she really wanted us to have a special time and enjoy her home! In addition, the place is spotless. The kitchen is one of the few that we've encountered recently where we actually want to use! Harbour Island has a nice, relaxed vibe. The local people were very friendly and accomodating. We will definitely return again!

Wonderful place, so beautiful. The house is really nice and spacious and the beach is one of the most beautiful that we view and we had travel almost everywhere around the world. Kim the owner organized everyhting to ensure that our vacation will be a nice experience and she's reach our expectation and more, she's really nice. I recommand that place and we love so must the place that we are planning to return this autumn. - Turcotte Family, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
