    3 Days: Essential Harbour Island-LP

    Enjoy one the prettiest beaches in the Caribbean and a jovial embrace of the laid-back life. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.

    • Day 1

      Harbour Island can be taxing to reach, as it requires two flights and a boat ride, but it is easy to relax upon arrival at one of Indagare’s preferred properties. Spend your first day at leisure and enjoy dinner at an island establishment.

    • Day 2-3

      Settle into the island atmosphere with leisurely strolls along the beach and partake in cherished traditions like fresh conch ceviche at Queen Conch and lobster quesadillas at Sip Sip.

    • Day 4-5

      Get up close to the marine life with an afternoon of snorkeling and enjoy active excursions like paddle boarding in the harbor and horseback riding on the beach.

“Harry O’s, located down by the bay, is hidden amongst the grittier side of Brilander life. The jewelry store Shine and its sister home store are true gems and are owned by locals." Read the article.
