Less than a mile offshore, yet a million miles from the hustle and bustle of downtown Nassau, is your tropical oasis, a beautiful private island that’s yours to enjoy for the day.
From the pier, you will board a ferry for the approximately 30 minute scenic ride over to Balmoral Island. Along the way, your onboard crew will share with you information about the area.
Upon arrival on the island, you will be greeted by the staff, and then be free to create your own perfect day. Do as much or as little as you please. On the sugar white beach, you can lounge on your included lounge chair or enjoy the refreshing azure blue Bahamian water. You’ll have unlimited complimentary use of noodles, and inner-tubes are available as well. Additional non-motorized water activities including snorkel gear and kayaks are available for rent. For guests not wishing to get their feet sandy, there is a heated fresh water pool nearby. For added luxury, there are a limited number of poolside cabanas for rent in four hour increments, on a first-come basis.
When it’s time to quench your thirst, there are several different bars on the island, each with its own mood, including a frozen tropical drink bar where frozen margaritas, daiquiris and Pina coladas await. For food options, The Market offers something for everyone, from small snacks to complete meals of fresh sandwiches, salads and wraps. The Market even features the only Starbucks® on a private island.
For your convenience, restrooms are located around the island as well as fresh water showers and foot baths. Umbrellas are available on the beach on a first-come basis and there is plenty of shade to be found on one of the patios or bars.
