Nassau Beach Excursion Reviews

You don't have to go far for a good time in Nassau. Enjoy a relaxing day with friends and family on the island's beautiful white-sand beaches.
Paid excessive amount of money for boat ride to local beach.
Sail Date: April 2019
Paid excessive amount of money for boat ride to local beach. Beach was very small and overcrowded. Drinks at beach were EXTREMELY expensive. Could not explore island due to barricades. RIP-OFF

Overall visiting Atlantis was interesting, but just too packed. For what you pay you get a ride, a chair and a towel. But it gives you a chance to walk around Atlantis.

beautiful beach, many cool areas to relax and enjoy the breeze, pool, restaurant/snack bar. Bring your own food, if you can. Drinks and food were five times the price they were on the ship - e.g. $7 for a small bottled water.

Beach is beautiful though water shoes might be a good idea as there are rocks in the water. The beach is actually part of the Sandals resort so bring lots of $$ if you plan to buy anything there. For instance, a bottle of water is $5 and a souvenier plastic sand bucket with a little shovel is $30. However, it is a beautiful beach. Again the worst part is the HOUR it took MSC to get us started so the 4 hour beach break after we started and rode the ferry for 35 mins each way was very limited and you will have NO shopping time in port.
