The oldest and most vaunted resort on Harbour Island (it was first opened by entrepreneur/hotelier J. Allen Malcolm in 1951), the aptly named Pink Sands occupies an enviable spot on Briland’s gorgeous eastern beach. Though it's changed hands several times over the years, it's still considered a major destination, with 25 comfy sea-themed villas set among winding, palm-shaded gardens. The amenities include three tennis courts; a pink-edged, free-form swimming pool; kayaks, snorkeling gear, and sun umbrellas for the powder-pink beach; and a gorgeous, Barbara Hulanicki-designed main lodge where the cocktail bar, billiards room, and lounge feature Balinese carved wood furnishings, tinkling seashell chandeliers, and fabrics in (natch) various shades of pink. New owners PS Ltd. (which purchased the resort from Island Records mogul Chris Blackwell last year) plan to more than double the property's occupancy over the next few years, by adding a slew of new villas, cottages, and condo-style guest units. These new lodgings will be privately owned—good news for those who want their own access to those famous pink sands.

Room to Book: One-bedroom Oceanview Cottages are $100 more per night than Garden cottages—but the view is worth it.

Insider Tip:

Lunch at the open-air Blue Bar, set right over the beach, is an absolute must: the conch fritters here might just be the best on the island.
