Harbour Island is part of Out Islands (Bahamas) and is located off the Eleuthera Island's northeastern coast. Its population is under 2,000.Harbour Island (Bahamas)

The island's only town - Dunmore Town, is named after John Murray (Earl of Dunmore). He was Bahamas' Governor (in the period 1786-1798) and had his summer residence here.

Harbour Island's turquoise waters and powder-soft, pink-sand beaches rank it among the country's most popular vacation travel destinations, especially among Americans. All of the pink beaches are along the isle's eastern coast. The sand's pink hue comes from a microscopic organism with a reddish-pink shell.Harbour Island (Bahamas)
