One of the most beautiful beaches in the world!

Loved the gorgeous sand, the fact that visitors and locals alike pick up trash, very quiet. Head over right before sunrise for an incredible show that is different every morning.

$155 fairy ride from Nassau to Harbour Island. The island is very small so I don't think a golf cart rental is required. (My wife is disabled and we walked it) Walking on the sand was like walking on enriced flour it was sooooo soft. There were few people on this huge beach. I would suggest staying overnight at a...

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.
