We visited Pink Sands beach today via the Bahamas ferry system from Nassau, 4hrs ashore and wishing it was more. My points of reference for comparison are Saona (Dom Rep) and Gold Rock (Grand Bahama). Trust me, this beach is fabulous! The sand has the consistency of icing sugar and the water aqua with visibility which is probably approaching 100ft.... More

This is a beautiful, outstanding beach on Harbour Island. We took a quick boat ride over from Eleuthera ($5 one way) and then rented a golf cart so we could spend an entire day here. The beach is absolute heaven, from the water to the pink sand. It's not crowded and there's a great restaurant, Sip Sip, just off the... More

The hotel and restaurant need new management. Rooms need updating, the Blue Bar restaurant has poor food and slow service. As of September 2014, they are closing down for extensive renovations and hopefully have better facilities and management. Until then, you are paying for an overpriced, old room.

Pink Sands Beach was an incredible experience. Unlike Nassau and Paradise Island beaches, very few tourists make it out to Harbour Island. It does take a bit of coordination. You have to take a quick flight (puddle hopper) from Nassau Airport to the island. Total flight time was only about 30 minutes including a quick 5-minute layover. I've never heard... More

It doesn't get much better than 3 miles of pristine, uncrowded, pink-hued soft sand beach. What else is there to say? Look at it during sunset and sunrise and the pink color of the beach really stands out.

I have been to lots of beaches in my life but nothing like this! The most gorgeous sand and water there is. Rent a paddle board and go out to the reef and look at the fish. The reef is mostly dead which is a shame, but still lots to look at. Even a pet nurse shark! There are chairs... More

I live in a great beach community in Florida but I don't know of another beach anywhere that compares to the Pink Sand Beach of HI. Not only is the pink sand unique you almost have it to yourself. On some days you can look in both directions and not see another person. The pink sand is great but the... More

Soak it all in and enjoy the turquoise water against the pink sand beach. It is a beautiful island in itself. You are here to relax, do not expect a big nightlife and lots of people.
