The Pink Sand Beach on Harbour Island, Eleuthera, BahamasHarbour 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 pink sand beaches in the world.

A lot goes into making this Pink Sand Beach so– pink. The three-and-a half-mile-long pink sand stretch gets its hue from thousands of broken coral pieces, shells, and calcium carbonate materials left behind by foraminifera (tiny marine creatures with red and pink shells) that live in the coral reefs that surround the beach. They are washed up on shore as a result of waves or fish who knock them loose. The pink sands can also be found on Harbour Island’s Atlantic side and along the Exuma Sound–Lighthouse Beach, Surfer’s Beach, Winding Bay Beach, and French Leave Beach are also famous for their rosy sand.
