Hang out in the heated fresh water pool. For active types, kayaks and snorkeling gear are available for rent at an additional cost. Inner tubes and noodles are available for free on a first-come, first-serve basis.
When you're ready to cool off, one of the several bars on the island can help. Daiquiris and margaritas are just a few of the tasty drinks available. There is also a market where you can pick up sandwiches and wraps. Restrooms are located around the island as well as fresh water showers and foot baths. Don't worry about getting back in a hurry, the first departure from the island to downtown begins at 12:00 PM. Your tour representative on the island will schedule you accordingly to ensure you are back to your ship on time for re-boarding.

The Private Island Getaway on Nassau was a wonderful, lazy visit to Paradise. A mere 30 minute boat ride from the harbour, which itself is a casual 20 minute walk from the ship. The superb beach, bar, Starbucks and local/ international food along with a good DJ and water sport rentals all combined with very friendly staff make for a great day getaway. Great facility Nassau!

This is a perfect little getaway excursion for all ages. We took our 1 year old and 4 year old and they had a blast. Plenty of seats with umbrellas and areas with shade. They have a market that sells burgers, hot dogs, chicken fingers etc... It is expensive $15-$20 per option, but decent food and they take credit cards. They also offer a variety of snacks and sodas/water for sale. There are bathrooms and showers on the island, but no changing tables or changing rooms.
This is on the same island as the "Dolphin Encounter and Exclusive Island" excursion. We were going as a group and my husband and I had previously swam with dolphins so he decided to not do it again. He was able to hang out on the beach and relax and play with the kids while we waited for our turn to swim with the dolphins. The beach was clean and beautiful with plenty of chairs and umbrellas. The food is pricey, so I would recommend bringing some snacks and bottles of water with you before you get on the ferry across to Balmoral Island.

The boat ride was enjoyable and informative. The island was relaxing with plenty of chairs, water was clear and calm, many amenities for food and drink, bathrooms were clean, staff courteous. The meeting place off the ship was convenient walk and allowed for some shopping after the excursion.
