Probably the best sand anywhere. Very fine, soft, and pink. Just beautiful. Sort of the antithesis of a Cabo San Lucas in that it's not massively developed and there's no one trying to sell you anything. Just a relatively quiet, gorgeous beach.

This is a very special beach, and the only "pink" beach that I know of - also it is one of the most beautiful in the world, at least one of the best that I have visited, and I have for sure seen a few around the world!

If you're looking for beautiful, but quiet beaches, this one should be on your list! The beach faces East and offers great sunrises, but still you have the beach to yourself!?

This is by far the most beautiful beach that we have ever been on. Loved having lunch at Sip Sip and then lounging on the beach.

The sand is truly pink, thanks to its high coral content, and it is a soft as silk. The beach stretches for miles, with no high-rise buildings at all - only picturesque cottages and small hotels/resorts. Many resorts send an employee out early in the morning to rake the beach, so there is NO trash and very little seaweed as... More

I just returned from a week on Harbour Island, and this beach was paradise. Pink sand, crystal blue water, and very few people on the beach. It is one of the most relaxing places I've ever been. You can easily walk along the beach to Sip Sip for lunch, or The Dunmore, Pink Sands or Coral Sands for lunch or... More

The hue of pink that Hesse Sandy beaches have changes throughout the day and deserves a full day to just watch.

We just came back from spending Christmas on Harbour Island and it was great. Golf Cart Rental (a 6 person golf cart) was from Sunshine Rental and they had the cart dropped off at the house for when we arrived and allowed us to drop it off at the dock for departure. They came by once during our stay just... More
