Pink Sands Beach, Harbour Island

Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Take a swim or stroll along the pale pink sands of Pink Sands Beach. The sand's color results from deceased microscopic organisms with pink or red shells that live on the seafloor, the underside of reefs, and rocks. While walking along the 5 km (3.1 mi) shoreline, you'll notice the brighter shades of pink in the wet sand along the water's edge. Swim in the calm turquoise waters, protected by the outlying reefs. Bring a camera to capture the colors, and consider taking a horseback ride on the scenic beach.

  • The sand really is pink! It depends on the light but it's gorgeous. There were only a few people there and I enjoyed the day.  more »
  • The beach speaks for itself. Soft sand. No shells or rocks to walk on. If you go to Sip Sip, there is an easy access. Wonderful place to hang out.  more »
  • Wonderful trip! Enjoyed the peace and relaxation. The water was crystal clear. We plan to return next year!  more »
