A well-kept secret among in-the-know travelers, Harbour Island is a hidden gem in the Caribbean known for its quiet elegance, refined charm, and pink-sand beaches the color of coral. Stay with Inspirato in one of our two standalone cottages: Frangipani Villa and Lime House.
Each two-bedroom cottage offers elegant tropical living, with a private plunge pool surrounded by lush gardens, just a short walk from the beach and the upscale resort amenities at nearby Pink Sands Resort.
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.
Shop for upscale homewares, clothing, and island-inspired toys and souvenirs at British designer India Hicks’ quaint boutique.
The island’s two central streets are known as Dunmore Town, and it’s the place to go for restaurants, cafes, and eccentric shops.
The island’s most famous beach is famous for a reason, thanks to crystal-clear waters, namesake pink sands, and a corral of horses that live just off the nearby sand dunes.
Harbour Island enjoys a mild and pleasant climate, with average temperatures in the mid-70s nearly year round. Average lows never dip below 65 degrees, and the thermometer rarely climbs into the 90s, even in summer. From late winter through spring, the island enjoys a dry season with very little rainfall.
