The Bahamas is a chain of 700

islands and cays located to the

southeast of Florida and

north of Cuba. It consists of a

beautiful landscape, blue

turquois water, and sunny blue

skies. The Bahamas was the first

land that Christopher Columbus

discovered in his first voyage in

1492. The British colony colonized

the Bahamas in 1718 then became

an independent country in 1973.

Did you ever think there would

be a beach with pink sand?

Well, this beach has it! This

beach is located in Harbour

Island, a small island next to the

island of Eleuthera. It is such a

fantastic sight to see! what

makes the sand pink? That’s a

good question! The beach gets

its pink sand from thousands

of broken coral pieces, shells,

and calcium carbonate

materials left behind by tiny

creatures with red and pink

shells that live in the coral reefs

that surround the beach. To get

to this beach, you have to take a

two-hour ferry from Nassau that

takes you to Harbour Island.

fifteen-minute walk to the beach,

or you can rent a golf cart and

drive to the beach.
