Area description

Harbour Island is an exquisite little haven in the Bahamas, situated northwest of Eleuthera Island. It is most famed for its’ pristine pink sandy beaches which stretch the length of the eastern shore. The west coast also boasts many more fabulous beaches and several marinas. Stunning Coral Reefs embrace the island and are home to colourful marine life and also turtles and stingrays.

Bright and welcoming pastel coloured colonial houses are dotted all over this 3.5 x 1.5 mile stretch of paradise island, surrounded by crystal turquoise waters and pretty sandy beaches. A self-driven golf cart is the primary mode of transport. Harbour Island is the ultimate getaway island paradise and it’s no wonder that over the years it has been a secret hideaway for the likes of Robert De Niro, Mick Jagger and the late Bob Marley.

Harbour Island is a magical place for many reasons. The scent of vibrant, draping bougainvilleas greet you at every turn and the constantly smiling locals offer a genuine warm welcome to all who visit their paradise island home. This is an island where you will relax, unwind and get lost in the laidback and chilled out Caribbean vibes surrounding you and trust me, you will never want to leave.
