Spend a full day exploring Spanish Wells and neighboring Russell Island, connected to Spanish Wells by a small bridge. Take a short ferry ride for an optional tour of neighboring Harbour Island, long famed for its pink and beaches and pineapple fields that some say produce the sweetest pineapples in the world. Alternatively, rent a golf cart to explore St. Georges Cay at your own leisure, or walk to Buddha’s, a unique bohemian bar that serves as the local watering hole and social gathering place. Since Spanish Wells remains relatively undiscovered, you may well have the entire beach to yourself if you choose to spend the day relaxing and sightseeing along the pristine coastline on the northern and western shores of the island.

Harbour Island Guided Sightseeing Tour via Golf Cart
Harbour Island or ‘Briland’, as it is referred to by the locals, is known as the prettiest island in the Caribbean. You will not be disappointed on this guided golf cart sightseeing tour. A local guide will lead you to local points of interest on this three and a half mile island. Harbour Island is a winsome mix of rustic, chic and Mother Nature at her best, with perfect pink sand beaches and crystal clear waters. Your tour will take you to a former ship building site, Sugar Mill, Dunmore School, Little Boarding House, Johnson Memorial Statue, Temperance Square, Bay Street Steps, Water Tower, the Catholic Convent, the Anglican Parish Hall, humble pastel cottages, upscale boutique hotels and more. Visit picturesque Dunmore Town, located on the harbor side of the island. It dates back 300 years to Lord Dunmore, governor of the Bahamas from 1787 to 1796. Since then, the clip-clop of hooves may have been replaced with the whir of golf carts, but the daily pace has not changed much. Briland’s laid-back charm attracts an international mix of nature lovers, millionaires and celebrities. Driving your own golf cart, as the islanders do, is sure to be a unique experience and a relaxing way to see the island.
