Welcome to Harbour Island

Harbour Island

Once the capital of the Bahamas, Harbour Island is home to Dunmore Town, whose flower-lined streets and colourful New England-style buildings are popular with tourists in the Bahamas. Harbour Island's main attraction, though, is the spectacular pink sand beach that takes advantage of the protection of a coral reef for tranquil waters and excellent swimming. The accommodation on Harbour Island caters mostly to wealthy travellers, especially along the "zillionaire's row" development.

Information & Facts

English is the official language in the Bahamas.

The official currency is the Bahamian Dollar (BSD), which is divided into 100 cents. The Bahamian Dollar is equal in value to the US Dollar and both currencies are accepted throughout the islands. Currency can be exchanged at banks, bureaux de change and many hotels. There are ATMs in the main tourist centres and credit and debit cards are widely accepted in all the big resorts. Travellers cheques can be changed at all banks, although those in US Dollars receive the best rates. Banks tend to be open from 9.30am to 3pm (Monday to Thursday) and 9.30am to 5pm (Fridays).

Local time in the Bahamas is GMT -5 (GMT -4 from first Sunday in April till last Sunday in October).
