Come meet our swiming pigs and explore the beautiful turquoise waters and white-sand beaches of Rose Island, an uninhabited private island just 3 miles (4.8 km) from Nassau. Take a ferry out to the island for a full day of snorkeling, kayaking, and hammock lounging, complete with a buffet lunch.
Enjoy a quick boat ride to Rose Island, along Paradise Island's scenic harbor and the luxurious mansions lining the oceanfront. Along the way, hear stories of famous celebrities, such as Johnny Depp, who own some of the tiny surrounding islands.
Upon arrival, enjoy a signature “Sandy Toe” cocktail and a welcoming beachside buffet lunch. Feast on authentic Caribbean cuisine while basking in the sun, or catch the game on TV at the beach bar.
After lunch, dip into the warm Caribbean water and explore the underwater wildlife inhabiting this secluded island. If you'd like to set off for an afternoon hiking adventure, the island offers 10 acres (4 ha) of lush flora and natural trails. You have the option to snorkel above stunning coral reefs, kayak through coves, play beach volleyball, or lounge in a hammock with relaxing island music. The day is yours.
