While staying at the enchanting Sandals Royal Bahamian, you're not just limited to the allure of the resort itself. Nassau, with its beautiful landscapes and vibrant culture, offers a plethora of escapes. If you're looking to explore, here are a few good places to start:
Rose Island is located to the northeast of Nassau, about three miles off the coast of Paradise Island. Explore this idyllic island with pink sand beaches and the famous swimming pigs. Simply book a tour through the resort for a chance to meet these adorable creatures. Some excursions include lunch, a welcome drink, and swimming with the pigs.
Expert tip: If you're staying in Nassau, the best way to get to Rose Island is by chartering a boat. It's just a quick 15-minute boat ride to hop between these two fantastic islands.

Clifton Heritage Park is located in western Nassau. From the moment you set foot in this park, you’ll be greeted by a range of natural and historical sights from stunning wetlands and rugged rocks to powdery white sand beaches and some still-existing architectural wonders of the Lucayan people. The Lucayans were the first inhabitants of The Bahamas, and this is one of the places on the islands that really shines a spotlight on their lives.
Ocean Atlas, the world’s largest underwater sculpture, is located near Clifton Heritage Park alongside other marine artwork. So, diving at this park can be memorable for more reasons than one!
If you’re after a historical deep dive in The Bahamas, Nassau’s Historical City Center is a good place to start. Immerse yourself in Bahamian history by exploring colonial buildings (colorful and fun to look at!) and historical sites. Some of the most interesting places to visit during this exploration include Fort Charlotte, Parliament Square, and the Queen's Staircase. When your tour is done, you can make your way over to the lively Señor Frog’s for lunch, or taste test the craft beer at Pirate Republic Brewery.
