The sand on this beach is unbelievably soft and really is slightly pink. Not many people on the beach so it feels like it's all your own and the sunrises are stunning! Great swimming when the surf is calm.

Soft pink sand between your toes is what you'll find here. Endless views of tropical blue water lies in front. Enjoy yourself on one of the prettiest beaches anywhere

It does not get better than this. It is a real dream beach. You have parts with restaurants and beach bars but they are never "disturbing" the natural beauty because they are hidden in the bluffs. The thing here is pure pink soft sand and the endless ocean. Gorgoeus.

Gorgeous. Beautiful. Lush. Tranquil. Just some of the words that come to mind thinking about this 3 mile long beach. The beach has a slight pink tinge to it due to the coral, which really makes it unique. Its lovely for just walking down, and even when it was busy, there was so much space to yourself.

Fantastic beach, with lots of wind and waves, perfect for surfing and other sea sports. Near there are restaurants and the little town of Harbour Island

Pink Sands has to be one of the world's great beaches. 3 miles of beautiful sand that's packed hard enough to make walking easy. Nice set of reefs to make swimming safe and fun.

We stayed about a 1/2 mile down the beach last week and we walked up to the bar 2-3 days during our stay for lunch and frozen drinks. King our bartender was great to talk and the service was good! The view from the the restaurant/ bar is breathtaking.

We took a day trip to Harbour Island on the Bahamas Ferry. It took 3 hours to get to the Pink Sand beach but I thought was well worth it. You do not need a golf cart or bike to get around the little town. We walked about 5 mins and found the beach. The sand was so soft and... More

Compared to some other beaches in the world, this is not a great beach. Though it's a nice long beach, you can't really walk along the beach as there is always at least a foot of seaweed washed up on the shores. In front of some of the resorts they make rake the seaweed but for the most part it's... More

Sometimes you travel to a location and see ads which promise much less than what you actually get. Not in this case! The sand is really pink and my family really enjoyed the day trip we took to visit the beach. Would go back again!
