We visited Sandy Toes through an excursion while cruising on the Norwegian Sky. Beautiful location with a stunning beach. Be warned that there is quite a bit of walking and climbing steps on uneven surfaces to get from where the boats dock to the beach on the other side. Great view, good food served buffet style. Friendly and helpful staff.... More

February 27, 2015 We did a 4 night Celebrity cruse from Fort Lauderdale to Nassau to Key West to have my daughter’s wedding. She wanted to do a beach day on the day in Nassau before the wedding and did not want to go to one of the resorts. I did some research and found “Sandy Toes”. After reading what... More

Sandy Toes is a great bar on Rose Island, off of Nassau. The waters a solo beautifully blue and crystal clear and there are miles and miles of beach to walk on. Would definitely recommend taking Sandy Toes' boat from Nassau, Paradise Island to get there, they have price options online.

We went on this excursion Feb 24th. Everything was on time and well organized. We took a boat ride to a private island. We relaxed on the beach, found great shells, and were served a wonderful buffet lunch. We went snorkling, the staff was very attentive and informative. They really stressed safety and someone was always there to help on... More

We were on our honeymoon, and decided we wanted to get out on a boat at least once. If we'd known how amazing this place was, we'd have gone twice! We had about a 30 minute boat ride out to Rose Island of The Bahamas. We got there with only about 30 other people, to our own PRIVATE beach! There... More

We really appreciated the lovely island and the amenities we found there. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't the best - very windy. However, we could imagine how great it would have been on a nicer day. We liked the rustic qualities of the walkways and structures. The best part of the island was its natural authenticity. We enjoyed snorkeling and really... More

AWFUL. This is a place for mountain goats. Rocky, steep, uneven terrain. You could really get hurt. The beach is ok to swim in the afternoon... too strong in the morning. Bring Water Shoes... the rocks are awful. The snorkel area is just ok...however slippery steps to get in and out of the water. skip this.

Hi there, Thanks for your review! Yes, many many times this has come up about the terrain of the island. It DOES include some distances and stairs - if you are not able or unable to go up and down, this may not be the excursion for you. This information is clearly stated in our brochures, online and with the... More

Thanks for your review - just to be clear to other travelers, the excursions DEPARTS at 10am from Paradise Island, it arrives at the island at 10:30am and then departs up there at 3:15pm and returns back 3:45pm.

We rented one of the very few homes on Rose Island, about a mile from Sandy Toes. Personally, you could not PAY ME to stay at a resort or go on a cruise ship and be around that many people while on vacation. That said, after a few days alone with the family on a deserted island, it was nice... More
