Harbour Island is most renowned for its pale pink sand beaches some 3 plus miles long and 50 to 100 feet wide – considered one of the very best beaches in the Bahamas. The sand is a composition of bits of coral, broken shells, minute rocks and calcium carbonate from tiny marine invertebrates. The pink color comes from tiny microscopic shelled animals known as Foraminifera. This animal has a bright pink or red shell full of holes through which it extends a footing, called pseudopodia which it uses to attach itself and feed. The pink sand is memorizing and you can walk out into the Ocean for hundreds of feet. It is hard to imagine a more perfect beach as it seemed to have everything.
Shanti (blue blouse) visited Caribbean with her friends. She writes about Pink Sands Beach, That’s a matter of some regret if it isn’t in your itinerary. It’s the most beautiful beach on the earth, I guess. we spent two days in Harbour Island just for getting close to the beach.
