It was beautiful. Enjoyed every minute. Just watch the current and under-tow. Really strong. The water was clear and the waves were fun to play in with the equipment provided by the resort

If you don't go to this beach while you're in the Bahamas, you will always regret it. Wonderful, easy snorkeling for the novice and the sand is so fine it feels like powder.

Loved the soft pink sand, turquoise and aquamarine water. The beach was not crowded which is a huge plus in fact it felt like we had the beach for ourselves when we went. Will definitely come back.

Loved the cottages, view and the beach. I loved going to sleep in tptal silence hearing the waves below. Make sure you get an ocean view cottage. Hope to return one day.

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
