Harbour Island is probably the wrong place for your vacation
- Covet a casino
- Need access to fast food or international cuisine
- Want to go jet skiing
- Have kids who need a lot of action to be entertained
- Look forward to shopping in big department stores
- Think sharing a 3-mile pink sand beach with about three
dozen other people in high season would be too lonely—or
- Expect things on small islands to be inexpensive
- Need to keep in close contact with the office*
- Require immediate access to high tech health care
OR, on the other hand
- Fantasize that such a lovely place would stay frozen in time and not experience the “progress” that comes with its popularity.

Harbour Island is probably the right place for you if you:
- Have a soft place in your heart for small town life
- Have a family that can entertain itself
- Could eat peas n’ rice three times a week—or don’t
mind paying very high prices to avoid it.
- Like small hotels that range from casual to elegant but
absolutely never bustle
- Think the local Junkanoo parade is as close as you want
to get to Las Vegas style entertainment
- Like having total strangers greet you on the street
- Think nightlife is more interesting when you mix with
- Are glad you can’t find a copy of “USA Today” or the “WSJ”
- Appreciate that a thorough island tour is best conducted
- Think it’s fun when the power goes out
- Love snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming, boating, or fishing
- Feel serenaded by the early morning call of roosters
- Can be philosophical about all the changes that inevitably
come with growth to a place such as this.
OK, so that’s more than 10. We got carried away. You might call it a baker’s dozen.
