“Worth the trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We were staying in a house in North Palmetto Point, we rented a car, so we drove the hour or so to North Eleuthera and took a water taxi, $5 a person one way, and rented a golf cart for the day and drove around the island. We stopped and went snorkeling in the water on the Pink Sand Beach, we were thinking ahead and brought some empty little water bottles to take some sand that really is pink and feels like walking on powder.

“Fabulous Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

This is a wonderful beach and lovely for swimming, which is rare in an Atlantic beach as you will know if you have spent time on Eleuthera. We stayed at Runaway Hill and as they are located right on this beach we had access to the beach chairs in front of the hotel. I think this is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever enjoyed.

“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

We visited Harbour island for the day taking a water taxi out of north Eleuthera. $4 one way and we rented golf cart for $40 for day. Not much shopping on this island but the beach is beautiful and then lunch right on the beach. If you want you can rent lounge chairs with an umbrella, 2 chairs and umbrella $40. If your staying at one of the hotels this comes with stay. All restaurants are expensive for drinks. We had lunch at the blue bar 4 of us $100.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

beautiful long stretch of beach for walking in cool soft sand, playing in gentle waves, or cooling off with a swim or snorkel in the nearby reef.

“Glorious beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

How can one be critical of one of the world's best beaches?

It is long , its pink sands stretching as far as the eyes can see in both directions...the Rock House portion cleared by Rock staff of any sea weed.
