Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Harbour Island, Bahamas your home away from home

Known locally as "Briland", Harbour island was the capital of the Bahamas and the second largest town after Nassau in the 1900s. The island is just 3.5 miles long and 1.5 miles wide and has an estimated population of 1500-2000 people. As well as having warm sunshine, pink sandy beaches and clear aquamarine waters, Harbour Island holiday rentals also makes the ideal base for exploring the island's history, music, cuisine and duty-free shopping.  

Things to Do in Harbour Island, Bahamas

Stroll the soft sandy beaches looking for exotic seashells, sunbathe, swim in the warm waters or relax with a good book at your own comfortable Harbour Island villa. The island has an excellent reef for diving just a few hundred yards offshore. It also creates calm lagoon waters for swimming and snorkeling. Bone fishing is a test of patience but is a popular activity on Harbour Island. Visitors can take day trips to Spanish Wells and North Eleuthera, go fishing or island hopping by boat or enjoy a picnic on a deserted island. The town has historic churches, art galleries and local souvenir shops where local handicrafts and bargain clothing can be picked up at very reasonable prices.

Stroll along Dunmore Street with a local guide and learn about the founding families of Harbour Island including the Loyalist Cottage built in 1797. Climb the Hill Steps, cut into the hillside long ago by the local inhabitants, or visit the cave called Titus Hole, once used as a jail. Enjoy taking a day trip by ferry to Nassau to see the historic sites and indulge in some tax-free shopping.
