I really loved Harbour Island. It is such a quirky little place and is well worth the extra effort to get there (overnight in Miami, a quick flight to North Eleuthera then car, ferry and golf cart to the hotel). The whole feel of the island is totally chilled out and a little like you've found a tiny piece of paradise that no one else has. Island life is wandering up and down the stunning beach, and yes it really does have a pink tinge to it, or relaxing in a local restaurant or exploring by golf cart. Pink Sands is one of the best hotels on the island but don't expect 5 star glitz, this is more of a relaxed beachside getaway with simpler accommodations, but still all the creature comforts such as air conditioning and TV. They even have tennis courts and a pool, although no one is there, they're all on the pristine beach. Oh and what a beach it is, one of the best I've ever been on. It gets fairly busy with locals at the weekend, this is where they all head to for the day, however, it has a really great friendly feel. This is a vacation place, kick back, relax, enjoy the island's slower pace (the service is slower, be aware) but the people are friendly and lovely to be around. I particularly liked the Blue Bar for early evening cocktails.

For a full-service resort, Pink Sands, Harbour Island's original fashionable hotel, owned by record producer Chris Blackwell, is a good choice. The cottages, created by Biba designer Barbara Hulanicki, are large and full of character, painted in gingerbread-house pinks, yellows and sky-blues. Interiors are equally eclectically colored. In the main restaurant and bar, outsize Indonesian teak beds are loaded with plump Indian cushions and mirror-work textiles while the open-air design is punctuated by carved Balinese door frames. Despite a decent-sized pool, most guests hang out on the beach.
