While the Bahamas is filled with popular vacation destinations, Harbour Island has got to be one of the most beautiful. The Travel Channel, Fodors, and Frommers all have deemed the island as having the “Best Bahamas Beaches,” and with good reason. The three and a half mile long beach touts pink sand and the clear blue water is ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and enjoying a leisurely cruise on your Bahamas yacht charter vacation.
The weather on Harbour Island (known locally as Briland) is ideal. Highs range in the 70s to 80s and lows are in the 60s to 70s with cool ocean breezes keeping you comfortable any time of day. You’ll enjoy getting in touch with nature on this beautiful destination, with the lush greenery and warm waters. Go horseback riding on the beach, enjoy watersports, or simply lounge on the yacht sundeck. You won’t need to worry about loud music, noisy casinos, or late night parties. You can walk on the beach at midnight, watch the stars move across the night sky, and listen to the sounds of the waves lapping against the sand.
Be sure to enjoy some of the famous dining options while on Harbour Island and visit with the locals who will introduce you to the true Bahamian culture here in paradise.
