Beauty on the Beach

by kimberlyfisher1 about Pink Sands Hotel

Pinks Sands on one of the 2 nicest hotels on Harbour Island (the other being Coral Sands, now under same ownership).

The cozy, comfy carribbean retreat was built in 1954 and features island charm and seclusion...people really do come here to "get away from it all". The handful of pastel colored villas are scattered over 18 acres of beachfront property, including the never crowded pink sand beaches. +swimming pool

+24 hour fitness center

+ "blue bar" restaurant situated on a cliff by the beach.

+tennis courts

+beach side horseback riding

Where to stay: Pink Sands, 25 private cottages, kinda steep tho at 655.00 a nite, but you will definitely rub elbows with big stars.

Dunmore school

by Willettsworld

I think there's 2 schools in Dunmore Town. This small charming school in Bay St is the primary school and there's a larger school for older childen on Court Rd which you'll pass by if you head this way to get to Pink Sands Beach.

Pink Sands Beach

by Willettsworld

Yes, the sand is really pink! It's got to be seen to be believed.

The beach runs down the eastern side of Harbour Island and you can get there by taking either a rented golf cart or, like I did, take a 15 minute or so stroll along Goal Lane and past the school on Court Road.

The sand changes from it's normal colour to pink when the waves wash over it. Why does it go pink you ask? Well the sand is a composition of bits of coral, broken shells, minute rocks and calcium carbonate from tiny marine invertebrates. The pink colour comes from tiny microscopic shelled animals known as Foraminifera. This animal has a bright pink or red shell full of holes through which it extends a footing which it uses to attach itself and feed.

There's not much on the beach itself except a couple of cafe/restaurants and hotels.

Of course the pink sand beach...

by Greg_V

Of course the pink sand beach is the reason most people go to (or have even heard of) Harbour Island. Strolling along the streets of Dunmore Town, and seeing dolphins swimming in the harbor.

Secluded all-inclusive beach resort

by dcb188

Looking for recommendations re all-inclusive beach resort anywhere in the Bahamas, plenty of coconut palm groves etc on or near the beach. Thanks. Dave

Re: Secluded all-inclusive beach resort

by SunTanBob

If you want seclusion consider the out islands.

Pink Sands resort on Harbor Island would be a good choice. There are others...

Re: Secluded all-inclusive beach resort

We are scheduled to go to "Paradise Island Harbor Resort" . We havent been there yet, but from I've read, the hotel is older but the food and drinks are great. Go to trip advisors and you can get true reviews on any hotel.
Thanks

which island with a 5-year-old?

by c1628

we're thinking of going to the four seasons resort on exuma with our 5 yr old. like jd747747, we usually like quaint, small islands, definitely no casinos and things like that. but with our son, we will need to find a place where kids are welcome and has some sort of kids club, although we don't want a resort like the atlantis. also, we'll like to play some golf as well. any suggestions? i've heard of pink sands, but is there much for little kids to do? do you know anything about the four seasons golf course on exuma? thanks

RE: which island with a 5-year-old?

by grandmaR

I have not been to the Exumas, and do not know if there is a kids club at that hotel. I have seen lots of kids at Lucaya, and I know Grand Bahama has golf courses.

Harbor Island Winter Rental

by greetingcardlady

I've got a British friend who'd like to escape dreary London weather for a few months and spend some time in the Bahamas (she's thinking about Harbor Island). Any recommendations for a small, safe place she can rent? Websites to check out which might offer villas or apartments? Any advice in general? Is it safe for a single woman? Thanks in advance for any help/advice you can provide.

RE: Harbor Island Winter Rental

by 1eyedjack

Harbour Island is very nice and VERY SAFE. I think there is a place call either Pink Sands or Pink Coral or Coral sands or something like that, but if she punches in Harbor Island Bahamas she should get something.
Shee will have a good time and the weather should be great.
