Loved this excursion from Paradise Island. Spent the day, relaxing and enjoying the private beach. We were there during the slow season so there were less than 50 people on the island with us. Lunch was included and it was tasty. The beach bar was inexpensive and enjoyable. Friendly bartenders and tour guides Loved it.

Sandy Toes is on Rose Island just out of the harbor of Nassau, about 15 minutes on a Sandy Toes ferry or 8 minutes in a power boat or center console. Great bar, great service, great crowd. Menu is limited (but you have to remember you are on a desert island) but the food is good and filling. Just the... More

Sandy toes at rosé island is a nice place to visit to get away from the hubbub of downtown Nassau. There is snorkeling, hammocks, and beach bar/restaurant and beautiful atmosphere. However, the food is just burgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwich and none of it is that good, but will cost you a pretty penny. You are not "allowed" to bring... More

We went to Rose Island on the Sandy Toes tour from our resort. We loved the beach and the snorkeling. I thought the luncheon could have been better. It was a buffet of pasta salad, hot dogs, battered fish (mostly batter) rice with beans, and a lettuce salad with lemonade to drink. For what we paid ($170USD) we expected a... More

The Sandy Toes Adventure was great. The boat ride was nice and calm and the island was beautiful and relaxing. The snorkeling adventure was fun, the guide had a great personality and was very knowledgeable. I really loved relaxing in the hammocks!

We really enjoyed the Sandy Toes/Rose Island excursion! The island and beach was so beautiful! The boat was good, had a glass bottom which was fun to see the ocean bottom cruise by underneath us. The crew was very friendly and always willing to help. Everything was included except for tube and kayak rentals. We enjoyed the snorkeling, the buffet... More

You can't hear much of what is being said on the trip if you sit on the back or side of the boat. Most of the mixed drinks are about $5 so don't pay the $40 unless you plan on drinking at least 8 of them. Drinks come in a medium sized solo cup. The bar and place for lunch... More

Hi Denise - thanks for the feedback. To address the Jellyfish sting, this is one of the risks you take when you go ANYWHERE as you are entering a natural habitat, so just be careful and don't touch anything you are unsure of (please ask if you have any questions). When you say we are unprepared isn't quite accurate as... More

My friend and I took the trip to Rose Island/Sandy Toes. We had a wonderful day! The beach there is beautiful. The snorkeling is just great! We enjoyed the lunch very much. There is not a lot of shade on the beach so when you get there make a beeline for the beach and claim one of the few shady... More

Six of us (4 adults and 2 kids, ages 11 and 12), took the Sandy Toes Tour. We walked from Comfort Suites to the Ferry Dock (less than 10 minutes, cut through the Atlantis Marina to stay off the streets). They also can pick you up from certain hotels for a fee per person. Took a nice boat ride out... More

I've been on the Sandy Toes trip a few times, first in 1999, then 2009. Most recently a couple of days ago. It used to be run by a guy who I assume was the owner. Perhaps he's retired now and the business sold-on because the service has dropped through the floor. The boat crew were a little harsh while... More
