Billionaires Love This Tiny Bahamas Island. A Travel Guide for the Rest of Us.

HARBOUR ISLAND—a tiny sliver of land in the easternmost reaches of the Bahamas—is sometimes called the Nantucket of the Caribbean because of its concentration of billionaires, celebrities and colonial-era houses. But unlike many other jet-set playgrounds, Harbour Island has much to entice the rest of us, too.

Over the course of a two-week visit, I savored top-notch sunrises on the three-mile-long Pink Sands Beach. Though much sought after for its distinctive hue, it still feels wild thanks to a steep ridge that partially blocks out the mansions and high-end resorts behind it. I spent hours walking the island, luxuriating in the breezy climate, said to have curative properties; a 1722 report claimed that “when inhabitants of other islands become sick, they go to Harbour Island and are cured within 15 or 20 days.”
