Well worth the money - 40 minute boat ride out to Rose Island, relaxing on their tranquil beach, decent hot lunch, great beach bar frozen cocktails and snorkeling on their reef. Great time!

Try and go to one of he quiet public beaches on a private boat. Take plenty to drink and use some shade. It's a great place to go with a group of people, sit in the clear warm water and relax. The snorkeling is great and it's only a 30 to 40 minute boat ride from Nassau. A great day out. If you can't go on a private boat, take a trip with Captain Andy or another boat owner and go to Sandy Toes.

We visited Rose Island during our Bahamas cruise February 2013. Although there is no fee to be on the Island, you do need to find a way to get there, which for us was booking a private boat tour. The Island was about 10 minutes away on a small private boat from the port. It is just passing the famous Blue Lagoon. Once getting to Rose Island we snorkeled a little bit in the clear and warm waters, which was awesome! After snorkeling and enjoying a few beers, we threw down some towels and enjoyed the sun. Since it is pretty much a private island, it was awesome just lying there with no noise or people walking around. All we heard was the sound of the water. The Captain from the private boat we rented to get there was guarding the boat at all times, giving us the privacy to relax and explore the island any which way we wanted. Rose Island is definitely a great little place to get away from everything.

Rose island is a nice island that is often used by tour operators for tourists to get a feel of enjoying a private island. There are no facilities or chairs. I would only go to rosé island on a private boat....the tour boats looked crowded with cookie cutter experiences. Spend a little extra and charter a boat with captain Carl.

This was a great trip! We went through Majestic Tours at Atlantis. We took a boat to Rose Island (also called Sandy Toes beach). They provided lunch and we went snorkeling. I would highly recommend it!
