While we fully encourage our guests to experience Harbour Island to their heart’s content in the manner they choose, it helps to have a few tips in mind when planning your vacation here. Read on below for more details on how to plan a hassle-free Harbour Island Bahamas vacation!

What to Bring

It’s important to be properly prepared for your island experience in order to enjoy Harbour Island to the fullest, especially depending on which season you decide to visit during.

First and foremost, United States citizens will need a valid passport and a roundtrip air or sea ticket, while Canadian citizens will need proof of citizenship (such as an official birth certificate or Canadian passport) and a valid photo ID (such as a driver’s license).

If you need to talk to someone back home, have them call you, or research an international calling plan. It’s also a good idea to make sure you have travel insurance in the event of an emergency.

Items like swimsuits and sunscreen come to mind first, but it can also get pretty chilly during the high season of December through April. Bring a sweater and jacket if you plan on going on fishing charters or spending time on the water in a boat, as the lows can dip into the 60s.

Where to Go when You Get Here

When you arrive on Harbour Island, Government Dock is one of the first hubs you’ll encounter on the island. On and around the dock, you can rent a golf cart to get around the island or dine on a delicious fried or raw conch from one of the many local conch shacks before heading to your vacation rental.

Top Things to Include on Your Itinerary

There are several sights and attractions you don’t want to miss seeing during your Harbour Island, Bahamas vacation.

Be sure to plan plenty of time on our picturesque pink sand beaches, where you can go horseback riding, sunbathing, and snorkeling. Out on the water, snorkeling and scuba diving among the reefs, underwater caves, and shipwrecks is sublime, and deep sea fishing charters provide extra adventure. Island hopping on the Out Islands is another popular way to fill the days.

In Dunmore Town, you can soak up the quaint charm of the historic buildings and New England architecture. It’s also where you’ll find all of the island’s restaurants and nightlife.

With these planning tips in mind, planning your Harbour Island, Bahamas vacation is a breeze!
