Pink Sands of Harbour Island

Postby KarenS » Fri Mar 30, 2007 7:56 am


Three miles long. Declared "quite possibly the finest beach in the world” by Condé Nast Traveler and "Best Sand Beach” by the Travel Channel. The Pink Sands Beach of Harbour Island is as much a mystery as it is a haven for seclusion and serenity.

The beach's pink color comes from microscopic coral insects called Foraminifera. With bright pink or red shells, they thrive underneath reefs, on sea floors, beneath rocks and caves. Foraminifera wash up on shore when waves or fish knock them loose. Unlike typical beaches, the sand here is always cool – feel free to walk about with bare feet. Sparkling waters are hemmed by a barrier reef that creates a natural aquarium perfect for snorkeling and some of the safest swimming in The Bahamas.
