Harbour Island is tiny—just 3.5 miles long by a half-mile wide—but this Caribbean gem punches well above its weight. Think miles of unspoiled pink-sand beaches, pastel-hued cottages, and boutique hotels and upscale resorts with five-star amenities and gourmet restaurants. There are no car rentals on Harbour Island, so visitors scoot around in golf carts, which only serves to enhance the isle’s laidback charm. Come for the postcard-perfect beaches; stay for the incredible restaurants, some of the best the Caribbean has to offer. Be sure to leave some room to sample local favorites, including conch salad, rock lobsters, and guava duff—a guava-filled pastry dessert.
