When we think of historical locations, rosy-hued sand and 1800s pastel clapboard houses aren’t usually the first things that come to mind. But at Pink Sands Resort, you’ll be among one of the oldest communities in the Bahamas – known for its beautiful beach and incomparable island hospitality.

The 20-acre resort comprised of 25 quaint yet lavish cottages is located in Harbor Island, part of the Out Islands of the Bahamas.

After a candlelight Caribbean bistro dinner at the onsite Garden Terrace Restaurant, you just might want to relax in the oversized freshwater swimming pool and ready yourself for a day of sunny adventure on the nearby Eleuthera Island. Or try out bone, reef and deep sea fishing in the aqua Atlantic Ocean. Rather stay in Pink Sands? Meander along the pathways through the lush gardens and official bird sanctuary and arrange an oceanside massage. Don’t wait – the unspoiled Bahamas beauty is waiting for you.

They say variety is the spice of life, but we’d be content to hole up in our No. 5 spot’s sheltered coves and recline on its pristine beaches for all eternity. How long you stay on Grenada is up to you, but don’t say we didn’t prepare you for this Caribbean island’s awe-inspiring splendor!

We know what you’re (soon to be) thinking. We practically just told you not to stray from Grenada’s scenic coasts, and now we’re going to ask you to forsake these Caribbean beaches in favor of inland adventures. Call us fickle if you dare, but we think Grenada’s tropical waterfalls are a must-see on your Caribbean island vacation. We started with the relatively-accessible Annandale Falls and worked our way in from there. Next was the trio of scenic cascades known collectively as Concord Falls. And you’ll work the hardest for the last stop, Royal Mt. Carmel Falls, but when you behold its 70-ft. twin cascades, we think you’ll agree it was worth the hike! But let’s go back to that “spice” we first spoke of. Exotic flavorings – nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and tumeric, to name a few – are all harvested from Grenada’s fertile soil. It’s an impressive feat, but one that isn’t all that surprising. This is the Isle of Spice, after all!

Related activities

Hiking, biking, kayaking and birdwatching can all be enjoyed on this fair Caribbean isle.

Since its discovery in 1492, Grenada’s land has been used primarily for agricultural purposes. Sugar cane, sweet grass and exotic spices are among the fruits of this Caribbean island’s labors.
