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!

Even at the height of the Christmas holiday season it was possible to find peace on this stunning beach. Yes, this is a must see.

This is by far the nicest beach I have ever been to. The sand is as soft as icing sugar and is as beautiful to see and walk on.... this is a 100% must visit.

The Pink Sand Beach on Harbour Island is a public beach and 3 wonderful miles long! It's a great wide beach, spotted with boutique hotels and seaside homes. Some of the softest sand I've ever walked on - this beach made my day!. We were there on a windy day too - the water was pretty wavy and a little... More

Everything pink sandy brilliant blue.Peaceful. Warm. Happy. Wish they could stop using the gas powered golf carts - Harbour island doesn't need the gasoline. A perfect place for solar or electric power.

The most spectacular beach we have seen. Quiet and peaceful setting that is great for early morning or late evening walks.

Nice waves, perfect sand and not busy at all! Absolutely perfect. Go by at sunset to see the actual pink.
