  • This beach actually has pink sand! It's gorgeous! The sand is developed from the rose quartz that washes down because of the seawater that creates the sand to be pink. This is a beautiful beach that a...  more »
  • We made this excursion by default because the one we had originally arranged (other provider) was cancelled (weather conditions) and the following availables no longer corresponded to our flights. So we chose the only ones available out of a dozen attempted. Rose island is "privatized" by Sandy toes who has built its infrastructure on it (restoration, toilets etc...) As far as the organization is concerned, there is nothing wrong with everything is well oiled, from the care, to the boat through the meal. The activity of snorkeling has little interest, because it is done right next to the beach where the marine fauna is little developed and almost no fish (forced to bait with bread lol). Regarding the interaction with pigs, they are on this domesticated island (ranging from a box A to a box B filled with food). The coaching team is very friendly and helpful all on a sublime beach!

  • Beautiful place but wild and its dangerous to swim there! be careful doing snorkeling, the girl was attacked by 3 sharks and nobody could help her, was too fast and she passed away..
  • Rose Island is a really good time. The beach is nice and the snorkeling was really cool. I would be careful of the sharks though recently there was an incident and when I was there I definitely saw some activity.
  • My go to spot for beaching. I choose the beaches further down when I really want to get away
  • Beautiful cay about five miles east of New Providence. Private land but day trips are available.
  • A short boat ride from Nassau, Rose Island is a beautiful, narrow island with stunning beaches, great snorkeling and a few 'spots' worth checking out. A favourite on the weekend with Bahamians. Highly recommend.
