No. 30 Harbour Island, Bahamas
On the small sister island to Eleuthera in the Out Islands of the Bahamas, pastel cottages with white picket fences cluster around Dunmore Town. But the beaches are the main attraction, particularly the famous Pink Sands Beach, pristine and colored a soft rosy hue.
Where to Stay: Choose Pink Sands Resort for its beach location and 25 comfy sea-themed villas set among winding, palm-shaded gardens.
