Read on to get a few inspirational ideas and start planning your trip to Nassau Bahamas!

Experience The Bahamas like never before; Our Party Pass is truly one of a kind. Board the boat on Paradise Island Ferry Terminal, cruise through Nassau Harbour taking in the sites from the multi-million dollar beautiful Ocean Club Estates and Nassau, up to Rose Island (a short 15-20 minute trip) where, on your own private beach you can hang up your bag, and your inhibitions, walk up to the beach bar and get your party on. Then grab them all and let us take you back to Nassau after an incredible day on the beach. All included on your Sunday Party Pass!

Great beach great atmosphere great people!!! It’s like you’re in paradise. Highly recommend you visit – Aug 31, 2016K. G.Tripadvisor review
Great question. What’s great about Sandy Toes is, we leave from and come back to the Paradise Island Ferry Terminal. That means, you’re a 10 minute land taxi ride from the Nassau cruise port and cruise ships to where our boat leaves from. Check-in is at 11:30am and departure from Sandy Toes is at 5:30pm.
The boat (our power cat the Hermit Crab) will return to Paradise Island at 6:00pm. At the boat terminal, there are always taxis waiting to take you anywhere you need to go. If you’ve joined us from your cruise to Nassau, it’s a quick trip back to the cruise ship port.
At first, we were going to say, “Unfortunately, you can’t spend every waking moment of your Bahamian vacation at Sandy Toes.” Then, we realized, you actually can! You could just rent our luxury villa retreat and eat, sleep, rave, repeat every day with us. However, we know it all can’t be perfect and Nassau and The Bahamas has some pretty amazing things to explore so we’ve made a list of things to do in the Bahamas that will compliment your Sandy Toes experience.
Another thing I would suggest would be to ask around and see if there are any local festivals happening during your stay: Each specializing in their own unique theme or mission, there are tons of day and even weekend long festivals that happen through out the year that showcase our culture. Including:
Junkanoo – A colourful parade full of costumes and music every boxing day and new years day beginning at 12:00 midnight.
Bahamas International Film Festival – A long weekend complete with movies, panels, reviews and even some celebrity appearances!
New Years Sailing Regatta – Approximately 40 Bahamian built “sloops” race around Montagu Bay on January 1st and 2nd.
Staniel Cay New Years Day Cruising Regatta – Very much like the above, but this one in Exuma.
Nassau Classic Car Festival – Look out for vintage and classic cars on the streets of Nassau.
PokerStars Caribbean Adventure – Held at the Atlantis, this event is about a week long and includes many parties and functions through the week.
Get to an out island: This one might be a little bit more expensive, but if your budget allows, it’s totally worth to take a day trip or even the whole weekend to one of our family islands. There are a few boat excursions that go for the day, or smaller airlines and a 25 minute flight that will get you there in no time. Check out Majestic Holidays who specialize in organize out island travel, they’ll be able to get you set up. You might even be lucky enough to catch a fly for free promotion if you book a night or 2 at the hotel.
Pro-Am Golf Tournaments and Celebrity Classics – Tune into the itinerary’s at Ocean Club and Albany to check out PGA events through out the year.
Rum Cay Day Festival – A festival, for rum. Enough said.
Pineapple Festival- Happens in the little place of Gregory Towne, Eleuthra. Pineapple everything – pineapple race, Little Miss. Pineapple pageant, pineapple eating contest.. I could go on.
Beer Festival – Go to Exuma in July, here you will find the magical Beer Fest.
Conch Festival – In October, we celebrate our native conch complete with music, dancing and of course a conch crackin’ contest!
International Cultural Festival – Probably one of the coolest festivals in the Bahamas. A plethora of booths from all countries of the world dishes up their own native food and drink. This festival lasts for 3 days so bring your appetite and your wet whistle.
Bahamas National Trust Wine and Art Festival – Drink wine, shop art. Shop art, drink wine.
Jollification– Held at the gorgeous Bahamas National Trust, get your Christmas shopping done by supporting local craft and art vendors and their beautiful little creations. Don’t forget, of course, to come ready to eat and drink too.
