Without a doubt my favorite winter escape is to Harbour Island, Bahamas. Fortunately, from Atlanta during the winter season, it's a quick 2 hour Delta flight to North Eleuthera and then a short water taxi ride to Harbour Island. Harbour Island is only one-half mile wide and 3 miles long there is no airport, though I find the island’s small size has been its blessing.

The tiny 200-year-old Dunmore Town is the main center on the harbor side and there are few small resorts on the beach side along with private beach houses. The island only holds so many people and the time of year from around Christmas through New Year’s is the island’s busiest. I stay at the lovely Dunmore Beach Resort and get around by golf cart. It's best to make all dinner reservations for places like The Landing, Rock House, Acquapazza, Da Vine, as well as The Dunmore well in advance. My idea of island travel is not to stress out over things like that. Days are spent on the perfect pink sand beach and turquoise waters mixed with some island exploring on the golf cart and long and lazy liquid lunches.

The dress is island casual and the temperatures are usually ideal. Sometimes breezy at night so a light sweater can come in handy. I like to have a navy blazer and Belgian loafers for more special holiday nights. The Dunmore has a Bahamian combo playing music during dinner on Saturday nights. The local Bahamians across the island are welcoming and remember you, some will end up serving you at lunch and dinner at different places so the entire place becomes familiar very quickly.

The worst part is leaving, but if you don’t leave you can’t come back!
