This charming island, called “Briland” by locals, is just an hour’s flight by plane from Miami, Florida. After landing in North Eleuthera, visitors take a short 5-minute cab ride and a quick water taxi ride to arrive in island paradise.
At less than 3.5 miles in length, Harbour Island’s gorgeous pink beach is famous for its sand and makes international magazines’ “best beaches” lists annually. The beach itself is rated as one of the top ten beaches in the Caribbean.
The quaint and friendly town features colonial architecture adorned with colourful Bahamian pastels. Harbour Island is known for its low-key vibe and relaxed energy.

Though pristine Harbour Island has always welcomed an impressive list of business leaders and celebrity clientele – Elle Macpherson, Diane von Furstenberg, Jennifer Anniston, Robert DeNiro and Mick Jagger call this paradise their seasonal home – its been mostly a well-kept secret.
