“Bahamas..........”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Hi again. Yes, I took the common ferry from the port of Fort LAuderdale, after leaving Miami Beach. Firstly, I got a good deal from a tourist guide store at Miami Beach. No sea-sickness here. Flat as a tack, all the way to, and from Bahamas. The best thing about the Bahamas, was that the weather was ideal for swimming. Perfect. Not too hot, and def. not too cool. Bad things:
Noisy, polluting motor boats designed to take tourists around. Def. should be gotten rid of,asap ! Spoils the whole beachline. And +. the motor-boat staff behaved like a bunch of upstarts. The food was bbq, but too "chickenized"! I gave up on chicken years ago. The aftertaste of chicken, for me now, is unbarable ! The restaurants were kinda lousy and boring.The one i went too was a rip-off, and I did not tip. I will only go again, if they piss-off them motor boats.....bfn.

“Stunning Pink Sands!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

The pink sands on Harbour Island are stunning, it really is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and so spacious and unspoilt, it takes your breath away when you walk over the small hill and see the first view of the crystal blue waters, truly amazing!

“Incredible Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

It's no wonder its rated top 10 in the world. Beautiful soft fine sand not a shell to be found very little sea weed as well. Great snorkeling on the coral reefs just 60 yards from the beach. You will see many colorful fish, sea turtles and lobsters.

“Amazing Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Ranked top 10 in the world for good reason. The sand never gets hot and is silky soft. Use caution when swimming or snorkeling, the coral reefs are walls and only inches from the surface. You don't want to rub against them. Lots of fish, turtles and lobsters to see.

“Gotta experience pink sand!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

I came to Harbour Island with some girlfriends for a holiday weekend getaway. I have heard of the pink sand beach and have seen it in pictures, but the reality is even more beautiful.

I am a beach connoisseur - I have seen black sand, white sand, gray sand, brown sand - but never pink sand. This beach is amazing. I found the color to be more peachy, but you capture the pink color in pictures.

Matched with the beautiful Caribbean aqua blue waters, you just can't beat this beach. It is so clean and beautiful, I can promise you will never experience anything else like this in your life. Definitely a bucket list destination!
