Pink Sands Beach, Harbour Island
(4.8/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Pink Sands Beach a centerpiece of your Harbour Island vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Harbour Island travel itinerary maker.

  • Worth the trip here! The beach is lovely, clean, open and just beautiful. A must see when visiting Eleuthera. 
  • The color of the beach comes from the abrasion of Red coral. This beach is wonderful to take a walk and relax. The wind is blowing pretty fiercely but too cold to the bath it is not yet. This is a real paradise for kids build sand castles :-)

  • The sand is silky soft and the water is blue blue blue. The temperature is perfect, even in December! I have been to the most beautiful beaches in the world and this is in the top 10... really :)
