Harbour Island’s Pink Sand Beach is considered one of the beach beaches in the world. It is a spectacular spot featuring pink sand next to sparkling turquoise water. The soft pink hue comes from microscopic coral insects called Foraminifera. 

There is plenty to see and do from lounging under an umbrella and listening to the waves, horseback riding along the blushing shoreline, swimming, or snorkeling in the nearby reefs. 

Bavaro Beach, Dominican Republic
