"Dunmore Town on Harbour Island" Top 5 Page for this destination outside Nassau Tip by Willettsworld
outside Nassau, Nassau: 6 reviews and 10 photos
Dunmore Town lies on Harbour Island which is 2 miles off the mainland of Eleuthera and 60 miles east of Nassau. The town is named after Lord Dunmore who was Governor between 1786-1797 and is the only settlement on Harbour Island.
The town features beautiful quaint colonial cottages along the towns harbour called Bay St and the oldest church in the Bahamas dating from 1768. The pace of life is very laid back with cars being out numbered by electric golf carts which are available to hire. But the most famous thing about Harbour Island is it's 3 mile long pink sand beach which runs down the entire eastern side of the island. The pink sand really has to be seen to be believed.
Both Dunmore Town and Harbour Island are easy to get to from Nassau on the daily fast ferry service which makes them an ideal day trip. The ferry leaves Potter's Cay underneath the Paradise Island entrance brdige. See my Dunmore Town page below for my info.
