Silversea Luxury Cruises A HARBOUR ISLAND

It’s time to channel you inner Moneypenny and James Bond, as there is no more romantic destination in the Bahamas than Harbour Island. Little has changed on this tiny slip of a place since the 1960s, when Ian Fleming (and, of course, Sean Connery) made it famous in the iconic Thunderball. So if you come here looking for action and after-dark activities, you’ll be sorely disappointed. Harbour island is just three miles long and half a mile wide. View more

This tiny paradise, located 88 kilometres (and several decades) away from Nassau is the epitome of exotic. The tropical heat, coupled with the gentle sea breeze – not to mention the almost evangelical approach to island life – makes Harbour Island unforgettable. It is impossible not to love everything it offers – from the quirky jumble of shops, cafés and restaurants to the town’s two streets. Modernity has arrived in one form however; recently some smart boutique hotels have popped up, adding a touch of St. Barts chic to the otherwise charmingly archaic island. The long swathes of pink sand beaches, the east of the island, with their occasional wild, galloping horses are enough to make anyone’s heart sing with joy, and give Harbour Island the edge over its other Bahamian sisters. The pink hue comes from a microscopic organism (foraminifera) with a reddish-pink shell that tinges everything around it. This, coupled with the sea (which comes in every colour of blue and green), gives Harbour Island feeling of being in a vintage postcard. Or James Bond film.

Formed over the years through erosion of the rocks by the dramatic crashing waves, the water in the pools is filled with shells and small sea life that wash over from the ocean. Once settled, the crystal clear water is warmed by the sun, creating a bath-like temperature and a tidal pool that is perfect for soaking.
