Sandy Toes Bahamas ~ Live the Luxurious Life on Your Own Private Island

This story is brought to you in partnership with Sandy Toes Bahamas.

Hello Private Villa!

The jewel of Sandy Toes, a luxury private villa, sits at the waters edge ON YOUR OWN PRIVATE ISLAND. It offers spectacular views of the sea, two master bedrooms with en suite bath, a fully equipped kitchen, and a dining area that seats six. Being newly minted empty nesters, my husband and I would only need two of those seats, and feel wholly deserving of them after 22 years of raising children!

A beach side massage would also definitely make it onto the agenda. I can imagine myself swaying in the suite’s king-sized swing beds during an afternoon nap or a nightcap under the stars. To keep in touch with family and friends back home, rental of the private villa even includes a prepaid phone.

Sandy Toes Bahamas Full Day Excursions

If you can’t book a room at Sandy Toes but want a taste of their heavenly digs, book a Sandy Toes full-day excursion. It includes a harbor tour and a private boat ride to Rose Island. Cruisers in port for the day can even take the excursion and be back in time to make their scheduled departure.

Upon arrival on Rose Island, you’ll be greeted with a refreshing drink. Then it’s time to choose from an array of beach activities. Snorkeling equipment is available, as are beach games and activities. I’d love to spend the day kayaking or tubing here with my travel mates, then top it off with a tasty lunch and libations. Sandy Toes boasts the only “TRUE” beach bar in the area. Sink your toes in the sand while sipping your favorite beer, soda, or frozen drinkie. Before heading back to your ship, spend some time relaxing in the hammock garden. (Yes, there’s a hammock garden!)

Exciting Group and Private Events

Having been to plenty of corporate events, I can tell you that the usual reaction to the conference center location and team building exercises is a collective groan. Why not schedule your event at a location that will have your team thanking their lucky stars to be a part of such a great company? Sandy Toes provides just such a venue. If you’re a business owner looking to wow your most important clients, wow them with a trip to Sandy Toes. There’s not much Sandy Toes can’t do. It is a private island, after all!

Custom Private Weddings

The custom private wedding packages at Sandy Toes really caught my eye. My husband and I will be celebrating our 25th anniversary next year, and Sandy Toes offers a package called the “Flip-Flop” package for those renewing their vows. Couples enjoy round trip boat transportation, a wedding minister to perform the ceremony, and photography services. Their guests enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne to toast the happy couple, a delicious buffet lunch and a 30-minute open bar. All of this is in addition to the amenities offered on the full day excursion. For first timers, Sandy Toes offers the more elaborate”Beach Sandals” and “Stilettos” packages. As part of the “Stilettos” package, a cocktail hour and musician are provided in the stunning private villa.

Bahamas Bachelorette (and Bachelor) Parties

Acting as Maid of Honor in a wedding is an honor…right? However, that honor comes with its share of duties. One of the more anxiety provoking duties is planning the perfect bachelorette party. Thankfully, Sandy Toes has just the answer. Google “Bahamas bachelorette party,” and you’ll find Sandy Toes Bahamas as your number one choice. Bachelorette (and bachelor!) parties can be booked on Sundays, and are customized to your preferences.
