Any visit to Harbour Island (Briland) is a great visit. The wonderfully friendly people, the excellent food (we had ice cream purchased from a nice lady's house!), driving a golf cart and enjoying fresh sushi are all hallmarks of a successful trip! Be sure to...More

We went with a relative who's a history nut. I guess if you're like him, you might enjoy it. 12 bucks to see a house of the time with a guided tour about Wilson who really didn't spend much time there.

This is the main drag on the island. Its small and easy to navigate. Take your holf cart. The local restaurants are (ie not the resorts) and have great food and beer gor a real bahama experience. Its rustic and authentic. No upscale resorts.

Be careful using a credit card at cart rentals. One stole our number and ran up quite a bill in the US even though we were in the Bahamas. Air travel, phone cards, sneakers, etc. Beware!!!!
