Well, we've been to the Bahamas a couple times, and so this time we're doing a repeat of our trips there, for both locations! We leave in a week to sail to the Bahamas, so I thought I might share some places we plan to go to while in both Nassau and Freeport, Bahamas.
In Nassau, we head to a very private island for a day of much needed relaxation, drinks, lunch, snorkeling, swimming in the water, etc. It's the island I have been dreaming of since we went there last year!!! Seriously- it's that perfect. It's called Sandy Toes, Rose Island, Bahamas. They pick you up near Margaritaville (take a quick cab there from the ship), then you take their private boat to their island, which is a very scenic ride there and back. The drinks at the bar near the beach are top notch, and the crowds are super minimal!!! Shhh.....it's my secret place....aaaahhh! This will absolutely be the highlight of my trip, I'm sure. I always reserve our time at this special destination in advance and the price is well worth the money!
So Freeport, to me, it seems there's nothing to really see there at the port, it's just that, a very basic, typical shipping port. We're headed to "Deadmans Reef" or Paradise Cove...don't be alarmed by the name, it's an incredible place to snorkel, get some nice drinks (if you like basic tropical drinks) and a very basic meal (think hamburgers/hotdogs and potato chips).
From the port, you can get their shuttle to take you to this private destination in Freeport. I think it's about a half hour drive each way, so make sure you allot the time accordingly.
The beach is also nice and not too crowded with people, but honestly we go for the snorkeling as hubby loves all the tropical fish around the reef, which you can fairly easily float/swim out to. They are serious about their "safety lesson" and beach protection, but aside from this, the price is cheap and it's a nice day away from the touristy crowds.
When you've had enough fun in the sun, they have their shuttle that will return us to the port in time, so no worries about snagging a cab.
This destination is also easily booked on their website in advance and is dirt cheap!
