The best things come in small packages. Only 3.5 miles long and half a mile wide, Harbour Island - known as "Briland" to locals - has a 3-mile pink sand beach that is consistently rated within the top ten beaches in the world.
The island is packed full of charm, elegance and an abundance of boutique 5-star hotels and amazing restaurants. Harbour Island sits just a mile off the better-known island of Eleuthera. Harbour Island's hub, Dunmore Town, gained fame as the original capital of the Bahamas, and the island still retains original Georgian architecture, marked by pastel-colored buildings, white picket fences and bougainvillea-draped doorframes.
Forbes Magazine rated Harbour Island as the 'Crown Jewel of the Caribbean.' The island offers several full-service marinas and is renowned for it's world-class sport fishing just minutes offshore.
