Pink sands beach is beautiful, no doubt. Some of the beaches around Nassau (where I was living) have a bit of rock and seaweed, but this place is flawless. So I'd definitely recommend a trip. I realised soon after landing that I was not organised enough though. Harbour Island is definitely third world, with dilapidated houses and minimal shops. Also... More

I've seen many a beach and this is unlike any other. The snorkeling isn't much but the sand and water make up for it in spades. It is quiet. I'm hoping it stays that way.

This beach ws breathtaking in its depth and breadth. Truly spectacular turquoise water contrasting with the pale pink sand that just went on and on as far as they eye could see. Wonderful beaches to walk with gentle waves, the sound of surf and powder soft sand.

The beach is a beautiful pale coral color and unfettered by any sign of industry. If you want to relax and simply enjoy a walk on the beach, this is your place.

This beach is a must if you are traveling to the Bahamas. It's a 3 hour ferry ride or a short plane ride but well worth it! We just went for the day and if we had to do it again would have stayed the night at a local bnb or resort. Must see! Chair rentals, horseback riding, drinks all... More

Wide open, quiet, peaceful, with beautiful turquoise water and silky soft sand. Great for swimming, running, walks, lounging with a book, romantic sunrises... highly recommended.

The people are so friendly; most are dog lovers. The water is so temperate and clear. You can see your shadow on the ocean floor.

The pink sand never got hot! we walked long distances north and south, and were able to swim out to the nearer parts of the coral reefs. On windy days when the surf is "up" ans swimming is not fun, walk, just walk and enjoy. Several Inns and Guest House have lounge chairs and umbrellas on their sections of beach,... More

I have been visiting Eleuthera and Harbour Island for some years and this was the first time I ventured to this beach. It appears that I am afraid I have been spoiled regarding pink sand beaches. The beaches on Eleuthera are deserted and it was such a disappointment to enter this beach to be greeted by a sign about beach... More
