Your feet sink into the pink sand at one of Harbor Island’s beaches in the Bahamas, one of the world’s most unique beaches, as warm, clear water froths on the crests of the Atlantic waves. To most outsiders, the Bahamas are synonymous with plush resorts (as our guide to getting a job at Club Med shows, that’s not a bad thing,) but there’s a lot more to the Bahamas than pampering tourists. They can be an inexpensive getaway, or a rustic place to escape the outside world.
