Charlotte Collard Says

One of my favorite trips I've ever been on was to Harbour Island in the Bahamas. I was there twice for a photo shoot. I've seen many beaches in my life, but this one was incredible! Nobody was around, and it is pristine clean. The sand there is so fine that the best way to describe it is that you have the impression that you are tanning on a "flour" bed! And, of course, there is the water, such an amazing color, and warm, yet it still manages to refresh you from the strong sun rays! There is also a wonderful little hotel here called Ocean View, located on the Pink Sands Beach (named for its tiny pink pigments). The hotel itself is very comfortable. And you always feel as if you're at home, because everyone working there is so welcoming. It's so small, in fact, that whenever you want, you can go help yourself in the kitchen. For lunch and dinner there's no menu because they cook the same dishes for everyone, but if you have any suggestion, the chef is always listening.
