Enjoy this upgraded version of the ‘Balmoral Island Beach Break’ tour that includes a lunch entrée and a beverage from The Market during your idyllic stay on this island oasis that lies less than a mile offshore, yet a million miles from the hustle and bustle of downtown Nassau.
From the pier, you will board a ferry for the approximately 30-minute scenic ride over to Balmoral Island.
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 also available. Snorkel gear and paddleboards are available for rent. For guests not wishing to get their feet sandy, there are 2 swimming pools. Or you might want to relax in a poolside cabana which are available for rent 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. Then, head to The Market for your included lunch. Here, you’ll find something for everyone, from small snacks to complete meals of fresh sandwiches, salads and wraps. The Market features a Starbucks® for coffee aficionados.
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.
