The World’s Most Romantic Islands 2015

Days of wine, orchid petals, and blissful beaches: T+L readers voted on their dreamiest island escapes.

No. 9 Harbour Island, Bahamas

12 of 21

If red and pink are the official colors of romance, then this three-mile-long island was a lock for the top 10: Its beaches are inundated with miniscule foraminifera, red-shelled creatures that give the sand a rosy hue. To keep the color scheme going, stay at the 38-room Coral Sands Hotel or the cottage-style Pink Sands Resort. Food is a highlight on the Caribbean island: You can find candlelit romance as well as excellent seafood (and an 800-bottle wine cellar) at the main restaurant of the Landing, a chic, India-Hicks-designed boutique hotel. Harbor Island is also wonderfully quiet, since cars are banned on the island (you can rent a golf cart instead).
