Harbor Island is an administrative district in the Bahamas and is located off the northeast coast of Eleuthera Island.
Harbor Island is famous for its 3.5 miles of perfect pink sand beaches. The warm clear and gentle ocean waters provide excellent fishing, diving and boating while outlying coral reefs provide safe swimming and snorkelling.
The weather at Harbor Island Bahamas is exceptional. The breeze of the ocean keeps my stay comfortable day and night as it offers an attractive combination of amenities that I never found anywhere else in Bahamas. Transportation going to and from Harbor Island is very easy and comfortable, too. It is serviced by the North Eleuthera Airport where flights from Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Nassau land on a daily basis while water taxis sail regularly to harbour island Bahamas from Nassau and North Eleuthera. Getting around the island is not a problem because there are golf carts for rent.
Accommodations vary from basic to luxurious resorts and hotels to charming vacation home rentals, villas, houses and cottages. These are located directly on Harbor Island’s beach and offer breathtaking views of the ocean. The hotels offer a wide range of amenities including swimming pools, water sports, fishing, diving and of course, fine restaurants. If you want a casual yet elegant atmosphere, stay at Rock House Hotel. It is a Bahamas boutique hotel with colourful feature of the Harbor Island landscape. If you want a tropical haven; stay at Pink Sands Resort, the largest resort at the island located on legendary 3-mile pink sand beach.
Restaurants at Harbour Island Bahamas offer the best cuisine. Menu choices are plenty and range from fine cuisine to a very delicious local fare. Rock House Restaurant is known for casual yet stylish setting. I was not able to resist their mouth watering local dishes such as herb crusted grouper; craw fish roasted in green basil butter and stone crab spring rolls served by their friendly chefs. Pink Sand Resort Restaurant features Caribbean flavours and local ingredients. I was even mesmerized by the beauty of the surroundings while taking my dinner at Garden Terrace restaurant. They serve sumptuous fare such as pan-roasted grouper, pepperport lobster, scallop and mahi.
It is only in Harbor Island in Bahamas where you can find these stunning and unique pink sand beaches that draws thousands of tourists all over the world. It is really the perfect getaway and vacation destination for the whole family.
