Harbour Island in The Bahamas has long been a storied destination for celebrities, jet setters, and anyone seeking understated luxury surrounded by resplendent natural beauty. From its pink sand beaches to crystal-clear turquoise water, Harbour Island – Briland as the islanders call it – is awash in a symphony of color.
But there’s more to Harbour Island than incomparable natural beauty. Its idyllic location in the center of The Bahamas 700 island chain makes Briland the perfect jumping off point for exploration. Sixty miles east of Nassau, Harbour Island and its naturally wild sister island Eleuthera, are framed by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Great Bahama Bank to the west, delivering an enticing mix of ruggedness and tranquility.
The waters surrounding Harbour Island offer some of the best scuba diving, boating, and big game charter fishing in all The Bahamas. Visitors can also get up close and personal with the island chain’s famous turtles, stingrays, nurse sharks, starfish, swimming pigs, ride the worldclass break at Eleuthera’s Surfer’s Beach, drift dive the Current Cut, or explore the Glass Window Bridge, a 30-foot narrow ribbon of land that separates the churning Atlantic Ocean from the calm crystal clear shallows of the Bight of Eleuthera. Countless secluded cays and sandbars surrounding the two islands beckon for exploration and offer unforgettable swimming, snorkeling, and private beach days.
There are a multitude of reasons why Harbour Island is rated number two in Travel & Leisure’s Best Islands in the Caribbean. Quaint Dunmore Town – the former capital of The Bahamas – is filled with New England-style architecture awash in pastel colors, earning the island the nickname Nantucket of the Caribbean. Visitors can stroll the tranquil streets (no cars (not true) are allowed on Harbour Island) and enjoy the diverse restaurants, upscale boutiques, art galleries, and vibrant nightlife that kicks off after sunset. Only accessible by water, Harbour Island is truly an exclusive destination, filled with unforgettable experiences and amenities. Now, with the debut of Briland Club Marina, this idyllic island is also the world’s most desirable luxury yachting port of call.
