Long Walks

No matter how many cars or bikes or hot tubs or wave pools we build, something remains forever romantic about long walks on the beach. The whole experience is made five times more magical with the pink sand beaches of Harbor Island.  Walk hand in hand with your beloved at any time of day and watch the lovely waters roll in and out as people enjoy themselves on their own special vacation.

A piggy-back ride on your shoulders as they look at the pink sand could become a young one’s earliest memory.
