Pink Sands Beach

Pink Sands Beach has a fairytale-like name, and you’ll understand why when you set foot on the beautifully colored sands. The nearly 5 kilometres of stunning coastline, saturated in golden sun and pink plush ground, will plant itself in your memory forever. Harbour Island in the Bahamas is home to inviting stretches of coastline and mellow waters protected by an offshore coral reef. This portion of the island is an especially dreamy part, known for its pale pink sand made from the bright red and pink shells of the microscopic Foraminifera insects.  The color contrasts and meshes with the turquoise waterline, creating sunrise and sunset colors that are unlike anything else you’ll see in your lifetime.

Getting There

You can find flights to the Caribbean from all major countries in the world. The closest airport to Harbour Island is North Eleuthera (ELH) airport. From there, you’ll have to take a taxi to the dock, and then a water taxi to Harbour Island. Due to the lack of international flights directly to ELH, most tourists fly into Nassau, Resident of Canada can book flights from Toronto, Halifax, Ottawa, Montreal and Calgary. Although US citizen can fly from New York, Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale or Miami operated by United Airlines, Air Canada and British Airways take a connecting flight to North Eleuthera from there.
