Find the Perfect Bahamian Island for You

From quiet cays to the bustling capital island, the Bahamas has something for every couple.

“It’s better in the Bahamas,” is the longtime tagline of this Caribbean island nation. And it’s true. No matter what style of tropical getaway you prefer—super sophisticated; activities à go-go; all day and night dance parties — there’s a specific island in this archipelago of more than 700 for you. Whatever pristine expanse — or spits of sand — you choose you’ll enjoy sublime and often footprint-free beaches and some of the clearest water on the planet — and a singular honeymoon experience.

Chic Beach: Harbour Island

Harbour Island, with its pastel-colored houses and high-end boutiques, attracts a posh crowd. After strolling the pristine pink sand beaches and hiring a boat to take you to the island’s best snorkel- ing spots, explore pretty little Dunmore Town. You’ll nd quaint churches, family- owned conch shacks and bakeries and stylish clothing boutiques like the Sugar Mill, owned by British designer and long- time Harbour Island resident India Hicks.

Where to Eat: Dress in your best beach-chic kaftan when lunching at Sip Sip, a casual oceanside hotspot with great people watching. The most romantic dining room on the island is located within The Landing, a ritzy boutique hotel. Favorite dishes include grilled lob- ster, beef tenderloin and chili salt squid.

Where to Stay: Pink Sands has 25 pastel-colored cottages and lush grounds that feature hibiscus and bou- gainvillea and swaying coconut palms. After a day lolling on beach (the sand really does have a pink hue!), sip a fruity and spirited Goombay Smash cocktail on the deck of the Blue Bar before dining at Malcolm 51, which showcases fresh- caught seafood (room rates start at $579 a night).
