Tiny Harbour Island, 3 miles long and half a mile wide, is one of the famously glamorous Bahamian islands that actually live up to the hype. Pristine pink beaches, impeccably preserved tropical habitats, and its old-world glamour make for an exhilarating, yet relaxing experience for the entire family. While an array of uber-luxurious resorts and villas grace the island, we’re happy to report that the three-mile sliver of heaven also boasts experiences that are sure to fill your days with unforgettable memories.
The Conch & Coconut concierge team is here to help plan your dream Harbour Island vacation. Here’s what an action-packed weekend of experiences could look like for you and your family:
DISCOVER DUNMORE TOWN - Friday 3 p.m.
To get a true sense of the rhythm and soul of Harbour Island you’ll want to explore Dunmore Town. The only town on the island features picturesque colonial homes and is home to dozens of local vendors. Does a historic tour on a luxury golf cart sound like something you’d be interested in? Our concierge team can organize a tour where you’ll learn about the history, culture, and people of this iconic Bahamian destination.

The pink sand beaches are sure to play host to your weekend on the crowned jewel of the Caribbean, but with the help of our concierge team, you can extend the magic into the night.

The service includes a beach bonfire permit, an optional fire attendant, complete setup and breakdown, and clean-up after the event.
DINE IN OLD-WORLD GLAMOUR - Friday 8 p.m.
To fully experience the island’s old-world glamour it’s imperative you dine at one of the long-standing institutions that give Harbour Island it's unique feeling. We recommend The Dunmore Club or The Landing for your first night. The environment at these locales is sure to transport you to another time while exposing you to the rich diversity of Caribbean flavors.
BOAT CHARTER ADVENTURE - Saturday 10 a.m.
One cannot come to the Bahamas without enjoying all the wonders the ocean has to offer. Thankfully, the Conch & Coconut fleet doesn’t end with luxury golf carts. The waters around Harbour Island can be explored on our fleet of Intrepid boats. Whether you’re interested in fishing or sightseeing, our vetted captains know the waters like the back of their hands and will help you curate the day’s schedule. Up to 15 people fit on our boats and charters are available for half and full days.
JOIN THE NIGHTLIFE WITH A VETTED CHAPERONE - Saturday 10 p.m.
Don’t let the island’s small size fool you, for at night it comes to life with music and life! Not sure where to start the night or what order to hit the spots in? Our concierge team can provide you with a vetted guide or “chaperone” for the night. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, bachelor or bachelorette party, or just want to get a real “locals” feel, our nightlife chaperones will help you make the most of the night!
ELEUTHERA LAND TOUR - Sunday 10 a.m.
Just 5 minutes by water taxi, Harbour Island’s neighboring island Eleuthera is Bahamas longest island and full of surprises to be uncovered. If you’re flying into Harbour Island, you’ll be arriving at North Eleuthera airport. From surfing to exploring caves and other natural wonders, Eleuthera is not to be missed. We recommend booking a private land tour with our concierge team and then curating your stops to your party's desires.
