Pink Sand Beach, Harbour Island
Stretching for just over 3 miles, Pink Sand Beach boasts of a powder-pink landscape that offers the perfect ambiance for a walk on the beach. Even better, the 50 to 100-feet-wide beach has cool sand that allows you to walk barefoot, making you one with nature.

Located 10 miles North of Eleuthera airport, the Preacher Cave is known to have provided shelter to the Eleutheran Adventurers after their shipwreck on the Devil’s Backbone.
Besides the Preacher Cave, Eleuthera hosts several other thrilling caves (such as Hatchet Bay Cave, Smuggler’s Cave, and Spider Cave) that enthusiasts will find breathtaking.
