The sand is so fine and Pink!! Lots of people enjoying laying out in the sun. Chair & umbrella for rent. Two horses with thier riders galloped up the coast for a nice atmospheric touch!!! Easy access to beach and several bar/restaurants available.

Even though it was supposed to be the busiest time of the year… This beach was still not overly crowded. Absolutely breathtaking views and we were able to find some shade as well. Great little tiki bar on the beach serves food and beverages. If...More

This beach is beautiful. Light pink sand. Water clear as gin. Super clean. Not overcrowded. Harbour Island beaches are some of the most stunning in the world and with calm waters.

It is a beautiful beach. Sand looks PINK when sunshine is very strong. Air plus water taxi to get there. It is expensive, nut worth to go once.

We walked down the small path to the beach and what opens out in front of us was breathtaking. Miles upon miles of perfect silly soft pink sand that was 100% clean and perfect. We swam in the Caribbean which was super warm and I...More

Took a water taxi, then land taxi from Spanish Wells to Harbor Island. Had heard so much about this island. It's a nice island but not as personal as Spanish Wells. Pink Sands Beach offers a pretty large/Long Beach, when we were there hardly anyone...More

We wandered along here at low tide and it was gorgeous. There were a lot of starfish who were drying out due to the extreme low tide. Would definitely recommend for a nice walk/ a romantic event.

You’ll have to take a ferry to Harbour Island. It’s about 2/2.5 hours from Nassau.

Depends on what you are thinking by pink. Nowhere in the world is it that bright pink, it kind of changes pink hues depending on the light and angle you are looking at it. It gets its pink hue from the coral shells of tiny... More

Where can I rent a beach umbrella and chair (4 Replies)
Do they have vendors on the beaches where you can rent beach chairs and umbrellas? Staying at Valentine's and i understand that there is not beach on Valentines so we'll have to ride to Pink Sands beach and I need some shade. Thanks

The public beach access in between Coral Sands and Pink Sands. There usually is a vendor there with umbrellas and chairs that they will set up for you. Coral Sands used to rent by the day, but I am not sure if they still do that or not.

Spanish Wells to Pink Sand Beach Harbour Island (4 Replies)
Hi All, We are coming to Spanish Wells this winter. We are only going to be there for a short time, but were thinking we would like to just see the Pink Sands beach on Harbor Island. What is the best way to get there? We have a private half-day boat tour booked already, just for seeing stuff around Spanish Wells, but the charter company says I would also need to rent a golf cart on Harbour Island to actually go to the Pink Sands beach. Can anyone help me out with info? I have also heard...More

Call Calvin Pinder- He Captains his own boat and runs his own taxi service! He should be able to run you from Spanish Wells to Jeans Bay Dock and then taxi you from there to Three Island Dock where you will take the water taxi to Harbour Island (4 minute ride over to HI). Setup a golf cart rental before arrival - you can find several by the big *Google*. 242.359.7135 - calvinp@coralwave.com While your at it if your landing at ELH then on your way to Spanish Wells set up that transportation...More

Hi. OK, I am very confused as I have been getting a lot of conflicting information. I could use anyone's insight on this topic... We are coming into port at Princess Cay on the Princess Cruise ship. I understand there is a boat dock on Eleuthera that has water taxi's that can take you to Harbour Island? How far is it from Princess Cay to this boat dock? Is it feasible for us to get to Harbour Island...it is so close... We come into port at 9am and leave at 4pm on a Sunday...if the taxis...More

Sorry, you'll have to visit sans cruise ship. Princess cays are at the very southern tip of the island and the water taxi to harbour island is at the very northern tip, at least an hour and a half drive if not more.
