Day 3: Sandy Toes and The Final Day of the Bahamas Rum Festival

Sandy Toes Beach Bar Rose Island

You know when they say too much of a good thing can be bad for you, I absolutely don’t agree.

Day 3 of the Bahamas Rum Festival was another great day, only this time the day started off with a boat ride to a beach bar, photo shoots at Genuinely Bahamian Products and the Tortuga Rum Cake store, then a little time at Fort Charlotte for the rum festival.

You can see Day 1 and Day 2 here.

I won’t lie, by day 3 I was feeling the effects of the previous day’s rum sessions and the Bahamian sun, but as a Castaway you have to cowboy up and let that neon blue water blow wind back into your sails. And that’s exactly what I did.

Here is a short photo tour of day 3 in Nassau, Rose Island, and the Bahamas Rum Festival.

This is Rocky, captain of the 31 Jupiter we took out and several other boats. I climbed aboard and he asked me where I wanted to go, “Is Sandy Toes on Rose Island open?” A smile washed over his face and as he pushed the throttle forward. A blue water beach bar was our destination.

Feeling recharged by the time on the water and the 3 SANDS beers enjoyed during the short time on Rose Island, it was time to get back to work in Nassau.

Islandz Tours

This is Jaime Lewis, president of Islandz Tours. Great guy and fellow Castaway. He also has a Kiosk in the airport selling beautiful Bahamian art applied to things like iPhone cases and other gear.

This trip was sponsored by Genuinely Bahamian Products at Bay Street Station.

Cheers!

  1. Ryan,

    Do you find Nassau has lost some of its charm due to all the mega-resorts being built on Cable Beach and elsewhere? I haven’t been in a few years, but judging from what I hear it’s turning into a mini Miami.

  2. Henry, I would compare it to Miami by any means, but it’s definitely built up compared to the other Bahamian islands. If you want a true Bahamian experience you need to get to the Out Islands.
