Sharing some film photographs from my new favorite Caribbean destination, Harbour Island. This beautiful hideaway is a small island nestled in the Bahamas, best known for its pink sand beaches and turquoise waters.
While visiting the island for a destination wedding this spring, I spent some time exploring all the beauty Harbour Island has to offer, and of course photographed it to share with you. Below you’ll find my Harbour Island, Bahamas Travel Guide. The islanders are some of the friendliest people I’ve ever encountered on vacation, the beaches are even more beautiful than the photos, and it’s the perfect mix of laid back and chic if you’re thinking about planning a destination wedding. Take a look…
These will soon be making their way into my print shop here.
If you’re looking for Harbour Island vacation rentals, the Ocean View Club is a charming, family run hotel overlooking Pink Sands Beach with a mix of rooms and cabins that are the epitome of refined luxury. Another option on the Island that offers an intimate experience is The Dunmore Hotel, an elegant and charming resort set in tropical gardens along Pink Sands Beach. Both of these are wonderful options for your Bahamas luxury vacation.
Across the Island, The Landing is a beautiful historic property dating back to the 1800s. This boutique hotel is a little less formal and overlooks the harbour in the heart of Dunmore Town. The Landing is well known for its owner, designer India Hicks. Pink Sands Resort and Coral Sands are other beachfront properties within yards of each other overlooking Pink Sands Beach. You can also find a variety of homes on the Island listed on AirBNB.
All photographs were taken on a Contax medium format film camera with Fuji400h and developed and scanned by Richard Photo Lab.
