Approximately 3.5 miles long and only 1.5 miles wide, Harbor Island is situated between the north east tip of Eleuthera and the Atlantic Ocean, a part of the island chain of that makes up the Bahamas. Dunmore Town, with its picturesque pastel painted cottages and fishing docks is one of the oldest settlements in the Bahamas and is the centre of island life. There are fabulous restaurants, such as the The Landing housed in a beautiful colonial building on the waterfront and The Rock House with its Miami cool. There are numerous chic boutiques, vibrant nightclubs and traditional food stands all on the gentle hill overlooking the bayside. Southern Cross is located on the three mile “Pink Sand” beach on the ocean side of the island which is protected by an outlying coral reef that makes the crystal clear aquamarine water one of the most alluring, calm and safe spots to swim in all of the Bahamas. “Sip Sip”, “The Blue Bar” and “The Dunmore Beach Club” are all fabulous places to have lunch overlooking the ocean right on the beach and only minutes walk from the house along the sand. All forms of water sports are available on Harbor Island. The bone fishing is thought to be the best in the Bahamas and there are internationally known local guides to take you to their favourite spots. There are beautiful deserted beaches and several unoccupied islands within easy boating for picnics and world class snorkelling and kayaking. Everyone gets around on golf carts which is great fun for kids and adults. Our concierge will organize your own golf carts to be waiting at the house on arrival. Harbor Island has no high rise hotels and development is tightly controlled. This means that even at the busiest times of the year the island still feels unhurried and peaceful.
Temperatures in the Bahamas linger between 70 and 80 degrees Farenheit throughout much of the year, thanks to the gentle trade winds. From September to May it is normally 70 – 75 Farenheit during the day and a little cooler a night. During the summer months it can reach 80 – 90 degrees Farenheit. The rainy/hurricane season is typically from the very end of August until the end of October.
The water temperature rarely dips below 72 Farenheit near the shorelines.
