For those of you used to the luxuries of city living it is worth remembering that Harbour Island is a place of simple elegance. Its beauty is natural and rustic and the locals charming and laid back. To enjoy your time on the island it is important you come prepared for this.

Ladies, have all your usual beauty treatments before leaving home or bring your own favourite lotions and potions and indulge yourself - as although you may be lucky enough to get the occasional manicure or massage, you almost certainly won't get a decent blow dry. This isn't St Barths or St Tropez, so beautiful flats are more appropriate most of the time than stilettos, particularly as a night out either ends up at the Vic-Hum drinking goombay smash or dancing on sand at Gusty's.
