I have been to the Exuma Islands where I have seen incredible turquoise waters. Interestingly, on the beach side of Rose Island, the view is quite similar. The waters are calm, the beach is beautiful and you have plenty to do - or you can...More

My fiancé and I go to Rose Island by jet ski regularly. The bar is amazing! The food is delicious and the music is always awesome. It’s an all around fabulous experience. The air conditioned bathrooms are a plus too!

We came to this Island on a private boat 47 years ago, in March of 1972. It was completely deserted at the time, just us. There was a “ruin” of a beautiful hotel on the Island at the time. Would love to know the history this hotel. There was also a concrete dock on the far side of the Island that we tried to tie up to. The metal moorings came out of the dock and we nearly sank our boat. The tide was so strong and we couldn’t get out that night. Had to anchor off shore. There was another boat ( sailboats) also anchored and we tied up to them for the night. We riacked violently all night long. Was such a memorable experience. We are coming to Nassau on a cruise in April and hopefully we will have time to revisit this beautiful Island. Would need a private tour as we arrest 7:00 am and feoaroat 2:00. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
