Coral Sands Hotel, Harbour Island, Bahamas | Call from US :
Coral Sands 101
We’re a beautiful, boutique resort in Harbour Island, Bahamas. One of the top hotels in the Caribbean, we recently completed a property wide re-fresh. Our secluded, little sanctuary has never looked better. We have 38 rooms. Not big. But we are big on service and style. Our priority is to deliver a special stay that you’ll carry with you, long after you’ve left us. Coral Sands is luxuriously low key and casually elegant. We look after you as if you were family, or celebrities. We are at your service.
Our Pink Sands Beach on Harbour Island
We’re famous for pink sand and turquoise water. Voted “number one beach in the Caribbean” by Travel Channel and consistently rated one of the top five beaches in the world, Coral Sands beach is heaven on earth. Piece de resistance? Our private, palm-thatched tiki huts. With our compliments, we provide chaise lounges, beach umbrellas, beach towels + non-motorized water sport accessories – including kayaks, boogie boards, paddleboards, buckets and shovels. When you’re not on the beach, we suggest that you mosey into town. Just five minutes from the hotel, Dunmore Town is Harbour Island’s epicenter. It’s a palette of pastel colored cottages, white picket fences, unspoiled nature and a handful of hotels, restaurants, boutiques and art galleries. Quiet streets are navigated by golf cart or leisurely strolled.
Over 300 years old, Dunmore Town was the first capital of the Bahamas. An odd and marvelous collision of New England cozy and colorful Caribbean, the mélange of colors, scents and people is intoxicating. Part 18 century fishing village and part Hollywood movie set, there’s a distinct divinity about this little piece of paradise.
