Pink Sands Beach, Harbour Island

(4.7/5 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.

  • Further south the beach is nearly desolate. The sand is like powdered sugar. It's waves on this side of the island but the beach is too pretty to miss. I loved seeing the guy with his horses each day ...  more »
