Bahamas beaches are all spectacular, but one that is often described as one of the best in the world is Pink Sands, named after its pink-hued sand, on Harbour Island, which has to be seen to be believed. Half a mile long and 3 miles wide, this beach protected by offshore reefs keeping the waves low and the water calm. If you’re staying on Nassau or The Exumas, you can’t miss Pig Beach – where you can literally swim with a group of pigs in those turquoise waters surrounding the Exuma Cays. No one knows quite how the pigs landed up there – either from a shipwreck or taken there by sailors years ago – but they are a favourite among tourists and sailors alike, and love to be fed.
Nearest Club Med Resort: Columbus Isle, 170 miles from Pink Sands and 100 miles from The Exumas.
