About Harbour Island in the Bahamas
Unspoiled Beauty in the Bahamas, Harbour Island
Visit the place that Conde Nast Traveler ranked as one of the "Best Beaches in The World" and Fodor's says has "best Bahamas beaches." Though Harbour Island has been called "the best island beach in the world" by major travel publications, it is still one of the best kept secrets in the Bahamas. Few people know of the romantic little island known as "Briland" by the locals. Less than four miles long and a half-mile wide, Harbour Island is a sleepy retreat with unique, slightly rustic charm. It's a tranquil place to let your hair down, kick off your shoes and unwind.
Beneath the Surface
Beyond the pristine beaches and below the blue waters lies a vibrant network of coral reefs. Scuba diving and snorkeling are popular pastimes to take in the underwater beauty and get a glimpse of interesting and unusual marine life. Current Cut Dive is one place famous amongst divers across the world and is known for its extremely rapid current.
Harbour Island Lifestyle
Central to Harbour Island is Dunmore Town. This quaint, colorful community features old Victorian structures painted in Bahamian pastel paints. Friendliness is the town motto and the happy smiles of the locals belie just how much they love their island.
