Harbour Island (or ‘Briland’, as it’s known to locals) is not your usual Bahamian hotspot. Instead of glitzy big-name resorts and waiting lists, first-time visitors discover disarmingly welcoming locals, spectacular beaches and small-but-world-class restaurants – all infused with an irresistible chilled-out vibe. Over the years this defiantly down-to-earth retreat has attracted a loyal following of low-key billionaires, who return year after year to bask in the simple pleasures of island life.
People on Harbour Island relax all day before bursting into life as the sun sets. Hire a golf buggy (the main mode of transport) to take you to Dunmore Town, a quaint little village where you can while away a peaceful afternoon browsing quirky shops and people-watching in cafés. The clear waters lapping the island’s picture-perfect shoreline are perfect for diving, snorkelling and fishing – or if you’re feeling lazy, simply stretch out and catch some rays.
You may be surprised to discover some of the Bahamas’ best cuisine on Harbour Island, from street shacks serving fiery fish tacos to fairy-lit restaurants creating buzzed-about gourmet dishes. No one stands on ceremony here – dress codes are casual and meals are enjoyed alfresco over sensational views. At dinnertime, feast on succulent seafood fresh from the ocean before moving on to the island’s lively open-air bars. This is when the party really gets started, as locals and holiday-makers alike sip heady rum cocktails while dancing to reggae beats.
Harbour Island’s once-basic accommodation is now achingly exclusive. Rustic boutique hotels oozing understated luxury have sprung up to satisfy the steady flow of jetsetters catching on to the island’s old-world charm. Private rentals are available to those seeking a more intimate home-from-home – choose from chic oceanfront villas or pastel-painted colonial cottages with old-fashioned porches where you can watch island life unfold.
