LUXE FAMILY SAY ........
I first visited this little corner of paradise back in 2008 while hosting a segment for 'Miss Universe'. I immediately fell in love with the small Bahamian Island.
Harbour Island is now firmly one of our all-time destination favourites. The hotel has an air of Bahamian charm and style and is great for families.
Exploring the island by golf buggy was a highlight for the children even though the beach access is quite hard to find. ( in fact we ended up with a police escort hahaha ). Another selling point of the island is the pink sand beach (one of the only ones in the world), where you can ride horses bareback along the miles of unspoilt coastline.
Did you read my 'How To' on swimming with the pigs??? Forget the Famous Pig Beach. Harbour Island is the only place to see these little swimming sensations
We rate Harbour Island 9/10
MUM SAYS .....
Please note this island closes for business during the winter months. Shops on the island are limited so if you have a baby make sure you stock up on milk and nappies before arriving.
