Escape is the word that comes to mind when thinking of Harbor Island. Only accessible by boat, this tiny island remains exclusive and a well-kept secret, favored by royalty and celebrities alike, nestled in the crystal clear waters of the Bahamas. Picture horses galloping over pink sands, New England houses buried in bougainvillea, high end cuisine served in rustic luxury, and a laid back but legendary nightlife and you have Harbor Island.
Key Cruising Areas: Harbor Island itself is only three and a half miles by half a mile wide, but boasts almost uninterrupted beaches of a unique pinky hue. When you have explored the island you can sail the short distance to the neighbouring Eleuthera, where you can dive an abundance of natural wrecks and admire the natural wonder of the Glass Window Bridge.
Don’t Miss: The island´s most popular mode of transport, the golf buggy.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: Despite the island’s small size, the dining options are world class. Try the resorts of Dunmore and Ocean View Club (a family run Harbor Island institution) for beachside fine dining, or for something unique, visit the sushi and wine bar of a former Nobu chef, Da Vine Wine and Sushi.

Local Culture: Somesay that Harbor Island is the birthplace of the Bahamas, with the original architecture of the Island’s British settlers copied throughout the country. There are stories of buried treasure, and of prohibition, but these days the island is more famous for its friendly people, who affectionately call the island ´Briland´.
Best Beach: Pink Sand Beach is regularly voted one of the world´s best beaches. The name speaks for itself.
IYC recommends: Embrace the island lifestyle, lose track of time sipping cocktails at a beach side bar, explore tiny boutiques, snorkel the transparent waters, feast on the plethora of seafood dishes the island´s quality restaurants offer, and if after a long day relaxing you don’t fancy partying into the night, escape back to your yacht for a peaceful night’s sleep.
