“Secluded beaches & Great snorkling”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

scenic boat ride and beautiful secluled beaches. Lunch was ok. salad, hot dogs and fried fish. You had to pay for all drinks including non alcoholic. Lots of beach chairs. You have to put a deposit to use the innertubes and snorkles. The island is very quaint and tropical with hammocks in the trees. You get to the island around 11am and need to be back on the boat at 3pm. You only get 4 hrs on the island, wish it was longer could have stayed all day.

“TAKE THIS EXCURSION”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

May be one of the most naturally beautiful places we've experienced.
45 minutes boat ride from downtown Paradise Island Ferry Terminal.
Great staff. We were two of about 45 - 50 passengers. Snorkel, hang in a hammock; walk the beautiful shoreline; good lunch; good drinks (get the Goombay Smash).
Take many pix. Not too many places are this pretty.
Excellent photo ops .... ENJOY!

That's the beauty of our little place - you get an out island experience without having to travel over an hour like some of the other trips. We are happy you could enjoy our slice of paradise with us!

“Nice getaway.”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

This excursion was a nice get-away within a get-away. We visited in January, it was nice to get away from the crowded beaches at the resort and hang out on the island. This island had some of the most beautiful views the whole trip. The snorkeling was nice, lunch was included in the ticket price and the island drinks are the bar were fantastic.

“Fun excursion!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Had a great time on the Sandy Toes excursion to Rose Island. The hotel transfer was very prompt and brought us directly to the boat. The boat ride was just the right length - 45 min - to enjoy the ocean views without getting bored. The island itself is BEAUTIFUL. White sand beach, crystal blue waters, rocky cliffs with scenic views - I wish I was there right now! There are plenty of activities including snorkeling, kayaking, lounging in a hammock and chilling at the beach bar, to keep everyone busy. The lunch provided was filling, but don't expect a 5-star meal. This was picnic / summer camp food - hot dogs, fish sticks, salads and rolls with lemonade to wash it down. Still satisfying! To top it all off, the price is just right - $80 per person for a wonderful day of fun on the private beach. Definitely check it out!

“Sunday Get-Away”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

If your looking to get off Nassau for the day then Sandy Toes offers the best Island bar experience. The snorkeling is really nice and the beaches are beautiful. The staff are friendly and know how to mix up awesome island drinks. If your feeling hungry the beach bar offers a grill that serves up burgers to wings. Just a short boat ride from Nassau mainland you wont be disappointed!
