Harbour Island is famous for its stunning beaches and dramatically clear waters.
Also world-famous is Harbour Island’s iconic Pink Sand Beach in Dunmore Town.
The pink color of the sand comes from microscopic coral insects, known as foraminifera, that live on the sea floor.
Horseback riding on Pink Sands Beach is a popular activity for tourists, especially honeymooners.
Harbour Island has charming décor and architecture. The island features many English colonial-style buildings and flower-lined streets.
If you ever hear locals refer to ‘Briland’, don’t get confused. It’s just a nickname they’ve given Harbour Island.
Harbour Island is approximately 3.5 miles long, half a mile wide, and is located approximately two miles east of Eleuthera.
