Harbour Island and Spanish Wells

Harbour Island lies just northwest of Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas. A yacht charter to this tiny island will take you away from tourist crowds and the hectic pace of everyday life. Only three and a half miles long and half a mile wide, Harbour Island, is known for its gorgeous pink sand beaches. Although it is a tiny island, the main village, Dunmore Town, was once the capital of the Bahamas.

Spanish Wells is on the island of St. George’s Cay, off the northern point of Eleuthera. It is a small, dry town where everyone knows everyone.


The weather on Harbour Island is lovely. Average high temperatures are in the mid-70s, and 80s and lows are in the mid-60s and 70s. Monthly rainfall in prime season is less than 4″, and ocean breezes keep you comfortable day and night.

Harbour Island | Things to see and do

  • Rent a golf cart and explore! Golf carts are the most practical transportation on the island.
  • Swim, snorkel, or relax on Pink Sands Beach. Taking photos on this beach is a definite “to do” on your Harbour Island Yacht Charter.
  • Shop in Dunmore Town. For personalized hand-made items, visit A and A Hidden Treasures. Dake’s Shoppe is a personally-curated department store in a restored historic home.
  • Have a lobster quesadilla at Sip Sip (local slang for “gossip”). The restaurant overlooks the pink sand beach of Harbour Island and serves “Bahamian with a twist” dishes made with fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients.
