There are many different kinds of island experiences, and
the Bahamas probably offers just the one for you. We like
Harbour Island's mix of high-end resorts and small town life.
But we know it's not everyone's ideal vacation spot. If you
still want to come after you read this page, you can learn
more by poking around the site or dropping by our bakery
to send us a note.
Harbour Island is probably the wrong place for your vacation
- Covet a casino
- Need access to fast food or international cuisine
- Want to go parasailing
- Have kids who need a lot of action to be entertained
- Look forward to shopping in big department stores
- Think sharing a a 3-mile pink sand beach with about three
dozen other people in high season would be too lonelyor
- Expect things on small islands to be inexpensive
- Need to keep in close contact with the office
- Require immediate access to high tech health care
OR, on the other hand
- Fantasize that such a lovely place would stay frozen in
time and not experience the "progress" that comes
with its popularity.
Harbour Island is probably the right place for you if you:
- Have a soft place in your heart for small town life
- Have a family that can entertain itself
- Could eat peas n' rice three times a weekor don't
mind paying very high prices to avoid it.
- Like small hotels that range from casual to elegant but
absolutely never bustle
- Think the local Junkanoo parade is as close as you want
to get to Las Vegas style entertainment
- Like having total strangers greet you on the street
- Think nightlife is more interesting when you mix with
- Are glad you can't find a copy of "USA Today" or the "WSJ"
- Appreciate that a thorough island tour is best conducted
- Think it's fun when the power goes out
- Love snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming, boating, or fishing
- Can handle the flight home leaving an hour or more late
due to sudden bad weather
- Can be philosophical about all the changes that inevitably
come with growth to a place such as this.
OK, so that's more than ten. We got carried away. You might
call it a baker's dozen.
