Bliss on a coral strewn sliver of paradise in the Bahamas

November 11, 2013


Pink Sands Beach, Eleuthera

Eleuthera means “freedom” and that is exactly the feeling you get when you visit this impossibly beautiful outer island in the Bahamas. You have no other option but to tune in to “island time” and tune out everything else when on Eleuthera.

I am convinced the gorgeous Pink Sands Beach in Eleuthera is the real paradise everybody is looking for. The sand is actually pink because it gets its color from the bits of corals and seashells that are mixed in with the sand. If you look closely, you can make out the pink coral fragments from the white shell bits. Pink Sands Beach is truly a spectacular beach. Miles and miles of uninterrupted soft sand, flanked by surreal shades of blue ocean, the only sounds one hears are that of the soothing waves and coconut trees swaying in the Caribbean breeze.

You can take a ferry ride from Nassau to Eleuthera and make it a day trip but the best laid plans involve staying at least for a night or two. Don’t forget to pack your swimsuit and sunscreen because once you lay eyes on the pink beaches and the jewel-toned turquoise water, you will want to jump in immediately.

And why not? You are free!
