Harbour Island HARBOUR ISLAND Harbour Island is a quirky, off-the-beaten path little hideaway. It became known to an interestingly international set just a few years ago and now enjoys the kind of cachet that can come only from quiet word-of-mouth recommendation. Along the bay side of this tiny island are cute shops, cozy restaurants and colorful shacks. The highlight of the bay side of the island is its only town, Dunmore, less than 10 minutes by golf cart from the ocean side. Fishing and sailboats dock here alongside the water taxis that shuttle locals and visitors to and from Eleuthera. The Island’s charming houses have the feel of old Nantucket. No matter where one is on this little island, the water is seemingly never more than one street away. Visitors to Harbour Island are welcomed without condition and are invited to share in the Island’s mood of festive irreverence. On the beaches, in town, and on the island’s mostly car-free lanes and roads, one of the distinct pleasures of a Harbour Island vacation is the opportunity to rub shoulders with the disarmingly friendly islanders.
