People spend their vacation in different ways. One of these is a trip to the beach. Few experiences compare to the feel of the sand under your feet, the warmth of the sun on your skin, and the cool shade of coconut trees. The inviting blue waters with its lush waves are also a beautiful sight.

If you want a truly memorable vacation, you can visit The Bahamas. This archipelago is located near the southeast coast of Miami, Florida and has a tropical climate you will love. Its 3,000 islands give you 3,000 ways to have fun. Two of these islands are Harbour Island and Paradise Island.

Harbour Island is located in the northeast part of the Bahamas. The locals call the island “Briland”, a derivative of its name when pronounced in a fast way. If you’re a history or architecture person, you can visit the St. John’s Anglican Church and the Chapel Street cemetery on the island. If you love mystery, you can debate the nature of the Lone Tree with your friends.

Paradise Island is located off the shore of Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas. People who are interested in marine life can visit the Marine Habitat at Atlantis, Predator Lagoon, Dolphin Cay Atlantis and Waterscape. For those who just need to have a good massage, there are a number of spas where you can relax. Two bridges that cross Nassau Harbour connect Paradise Island and New Providence. This means that you can access Paradise Island via the island of New Providence, and vice versa.

The pink sand beaches are the signature attraction of Harbour Island. The eastern part of the island is lined with these spectacular beaches which all tourists will love. The island is accessible by plane at the North Eleuthera Airport. From the airport, you can take a water taxi ride to Harbour Island. Travelling to these famous beaches is already an adventure by itself.

Of course, the pink sand beaches aren’t the only attraction in Harbour Island Bahamas. New England style buildings and houses line the streets of Harbour Island along with colorful tropical flowers like stargazers and daisies. The houses are characterized by gable roofs, symmetrical-placed windows and doors, classical style columns, cornices, and windows with shutters.

In Paradise Island Harbour Resort is one of the exciting destinations for adventurous tourists. If you want to indulge in the beauty of Paradise Island, or just want to have that one memorable vacation, book your reservations now. You can read more about the Bahamas islands at bahamas.com.
