This island draws one back again and again. Its fine, pink sand beach is considered one of the best in the Bahamas and the warm, incredibly buoyant turquoise waters are what photographers photo shop. Doll-like houses, wearing pale shades and charming names like Dilly, Hibiscus and Conch Pearl, date back to the 18th and early 19th centuries. Residents, aka Brilanders, beetle around in golf carts; life is sweeter than sweet.
And one of the really lovely sights in Harbour Island is the cloud formations that light up over the bay with the setting sun.
