- Play in pink sand Glorious, soft pink sand, the ethereal shade of the first blush of dawn, draws beach connoisseurs to Harbour Island, which boasts a world-famous 3-mile stretch. Plenty of pretty pink beaches also dot Eleuthera's east and north coasts.
- Ogle island architecture Lovely 18th- and 19th-century homes with storybook gables and gingerbread verandahs are the norm on Harbour Island and Spanish Wells. Picturesque Victorian houses overlook Governor's Harbour in Eleuthera.
- Savor soulful sounds Nights here rock with the hot new Bahamian group Afro Band, the hip-hop of TaDa, the traditional sound of Jaynell Ingraham, the calypso of Dr. Sea Breeze, the soul music of Ronnie Butler, and the impromptu performances of local resident Lenny Kravitz (who built a recording studio in Gregory Town).
