Travel with me #78 : A visit to the magnificent Rose Island, Sandy Toes and snorkeling with Lion Fish!

in travel •  last year

Dear Steemit friends :

IMG_0548.jpg

One of the best things about Bahamas is how many beautiful exotic islands there are. In fact, there are over 700 islands and islets which constitute the country that is Bahamas. Each have their own unique pedigree but I'm sure most visitors to Bahamas will agree that they are all largely unspoiled and very picturesque!

I haven't had much time to explore all the islands on this trip, but I did have the opportunity to visit the main ones like Compass Cay, Major Cay and Exuma Cays. Each had their own little surprises which are definitely worth a visit!

With so much to see and do, you might be wondering whether I had the opportunity to just enjoy the tropical weather, chill on the beach, swim in the sea and relax? The answer to that is yes!

I had the pleasure of visiting Rose Island, Sandy Toes and spend a day sipping cocktails by the beach, and swimming in the sea! Many would say that's the ideal activity for such a vacation and I must say - I agree!

The day started very early, I woke up around 7am to another gorgeous day brimming with sunshine and was ready for a lazy relaxing day at the private island known for it's pink sands!

The excursion was very easy to book, you can either book at your hotel, over the internet, or just turn up at the port where the boat leaves. Of course, I like to make sure everything is booked up in advance so I booked my excursion the very first day I arrived.

The gathering point for the boat trip is Magaritaville, a very popular restaurant and bar at the edge of Paradise Island.

DSC02043.JPG

Just beside Magaritaville, is the port where all of the boats are docked ready to take people all around Bahamas.

The bridge in the picture connects Nassau to Paradise Island and is quite impressive!

For this trip, a speedboat wasn't necessary because there were probably around 50 other people coming as well.
The boat gently pulls out from the dock and makes it's way at moderate speed through the harbour towards the open seas.

Only 15 minutes later, we're already arriving at Rose Island. The boat trip was short and actually very pleasant. Before docking, we drove along the long elongated island and saw very few man made buildings there. It certainly looks like a paradise waiting for me to explore!

The boat pulls over at what looks like the only dock on the island and we all disembark the boat immediately clamouring up the side of the hill ready to explore.

To my surprise, I was greeted by a bunch of free roaming chickens!

DSC02102.JPG

A small narrow passage connects between the landing area and the beach. It's all very natural and walking through, I felt like I was trekking through a small forest with Chickens watching my every step. How peculiar!

Amazingly, there were also quite a number of peacocks just chilling in the shade. Coming so close to them, I'm amazed by their beautiful plumage. They are even more beautiful in person than the pictures could show.

At the end of the little passage, we arrive at the beach bar and massage area which overlooks the sea and beautiful beach.

As you can imagine, i'm a little anxious to get my my feet wet!

I was really blown away by the beautiful and natural setting. All around, there are these beautiful rock formations that have been left untouched preserving their beauty.

In the distance, you can see a neighbouring island like a mirage unveiled before your eyes.

One of the best aspects about Rose Island is that it is a private island. This means there are virtually no people there and you can have so much of the beach to yourself. Exclusivity aside, the name Rose Island also comes from the fact that here, you will find the sandy beaches tinted in a slightly Rose colour. Sometimes, it's even called "Pink Sands".

The skies were absolutely amazing, whilst the sun toasted my skin and added to my already darkening skin tone, I kicked back for a moment to enjoy the neon-blue skies, threaded by heavenly white puffy clouds.

With such scenic and idyllic surroundings, it's hard to resist jumping for joy...

Before long, I felt the need to take a dip in the calm and tranquil water. Like most other islands in Bahamas, the water clarity is something to me marvelled at.

Just around this rock formation, you can see the coral reefs through the crystal clear water. It's amazing how the water blends from a yellow colour and through a gradient all the way to the tiffany blue colour you see further out.

Perfect opportunity for some on the fly photoshoots!

I really can't hold down my excitement so more jumping is due!

After some time at the beach, the hosts kindly invited us over for some impromptu island lunch.

Most people were happy to sit in the shade, but look at that view from the balcony!

IMG_8727.jpg

After lunch, we had a couple more hours to enjoy the beach, but for more the more adventurous of us, we had the option of doing some light snorkelling around the island.

The ideal snorkelling spot is just around that rock where the corals and reefs are.



If you don't have your own gear, then they are happy to provide you with it for a small deposit.





Be sure to check out my video of my snorkelling adventure! Look out for the Lion Fish!

I made sure to leave a mark on the island before I left!

And that wraps up my day at Rose Island, Sandy Toes! After travelling around all over Bahamas, this one day mini escape to a private island was a much needed time to relax. I can't stress how beautiful the island is with it's roaming chickens, peacocks and myriad of natural fish swimming around the surrounding corals. If or when you visit Bahamas, I highly recommend taking one day to enjoy this little gem of an island for a truly memorable day of pure relaxation!

旅行中总有几个难以忘怀的瞬间,遇见美好,再挥别美好,期待下一次重逢。1492年哥伦布登陆巴哈马,把这个人间天堂带到了世界的眼前。有着人间伊甸园之称的巴哈马,总共有700的岛屿,每一个都有它独一无二的特色,这里拥有大约26万平方公里世界上最清澈的海域,水下能见度可达到61米。我相信只要是来过这些岛的人,一定不会否认他们每一个都美到落泪。这一次旅行中,我虽然没有机会走遍这大大小小的岛屿,但是我也很幸运去到了Allen Cay喂了漂亮的小蜥蜴,去了Big Major Cay和会游泳的小猪一起玩水,最后还去到了Compass Cay和水里的猛兽鲨鱼来了此彻彻底底的亲密接触。

其实我知道巴哈马的招牌活动,除了和小猪一起游泳,另一个不得不去的就是粉色沙滩了。全世界唯一一片粉红色的沙滩,是因为海水冲刷红珊瑚而形成的,这里是度假天堂,也是拍照圣地。这片传说中的人间仙境位于巴哈马的Harbour Island东边,它有一个浪漫的不得了的名字——Rose Island玫瑰岛。这个保护这个地球上的粉色珍珠海滩,当地旅游公司实行了限制登岛流量的政策,每天只有50个人左右可以登上这个岛。所以我几乎提前一周,就预约了去岛上玩。今天我们就坐着小船,去探索一下最美丽的粉色沙滩吧,我已经兴奋的按捺不住了。今天我们要去玫瑰岛上的Sandy Toes沙滩的脚尖,这个名字是不是太有创意了。在船上,可以看到两岸一排排富人的别墅小洋房,白色,粉色的真漂亮,这25座色彩斑斓的小别墅融合了摩洛哥,印度和印尼巴厘岛等多种风格。船上放着欢快的音乐,游客们不自觉地跟着舞蹈起来,不一会就到了玫瑰岛。让我意料之外的是,岛上除了有最美颜色的沙滩,原来还有小鸡和孔雀,我赶紧过去和它们照相,孔雀的羽毛在阳光下闪闪发光。岛上的人们为了欢迎我们,还准备的欢迎的饮料,芒果味的鸡尾酒喝下去身体真清凉。顺着岛上各种形态的椰子树,就走到了海滩,海滩边还有一个酒吧,我们买了无限畅饮票的还可以一直喝饮料和酒水,真的太清凉了。这片粉色沙滩长约3英里,真正的粉色沙砾成了它的最大特点。再看看海水的颜色,在阳光下不停变换着它的颜色。到了中午用餐的时间,岛上的工作人员端来大盆的沙拉,热狗,还有烤鸡肉当作自助餐,坐在这样的美景前面,彻底陶醉了,都快要忘记吃饭了。

这片岛除了是拍照圣地,还是浮浅的天堂。现在大家就跟随我的脚步,跳进海里,看看海底世界吧,希望大家喜欢我做的视频,别忘了看看我在水下拍摄的狮子鱼,这是我第一次有机会这么近距离看到这种鱼,它主要分布在东北部大西洋区,别看它长得美到像一朵盛开的菊花,它可是是吃肉的,以甲壳类为主要食物,如果不是它看到我过来,赶快沉到海底,我好像伸手过去摸摸它。希望大家很享受今天带大家体验的粉色沙滩之旅,之后还有更多有趣的美景和故事要分享给大家。

·

Nice

:)

you are too good in writing. I just love your all posts. bdw you are dam preety.

·

thank you steemlover, really appreciate you loving my posts, that means alot!

·
·

Welcomse😊😉😗

·
·

hi friends .. i have your vote please vote have me, let us be familiar ..

Loading...

your photos very beautiful!! 😊

I can't believe how clear the water is! Diving in this area must be wondrous.

·

its absolutely beautiful!

Wow that is beautiful! Who is your cameraman? You need to invite me on the next vacation.

·

Haha, an avid traveller like myself, quite the internet celebrity in their own circles 😊

how did you get those underwater shots??

they look great by the way!

·

Was wondering the same thing haha

·

thank you orangeshasta! I have an old GoPro which I took with me !

Thanks 😊

·
·

nice shots.

I know that GoPro can do this kind of stuff but a friend told me is not the best for submersion. Would you agree with that?

did you used GoPro for deep submersion?

·
·
·

A GoPro is made to be used for action videography and water sports! The challenge is to keep it steady enough because it has no image stabilisation!

·
·
·
·

would you consider yourself vain or narcissistic? you seem to show an excessive interest in or admiration for yourself and your physical appearance.

·
·

·

thanks arthur-schopen, such is the world we live in. Anyone who uses instagram (and that's like most of the modern world) probably enjoys pictures of themselves and the things they get up to. No one needs to be criticised for being social and sharing pieces of their life with everybody.
Do you take pleasure in going against the grain of the society we live in? That's a rhetorical question.

·
·
·
·
·
·

I enjoyed this reply.
I used to be a bodybuilder and model before i got sick and my addictions spun out of control.

There is nothing wrong with taking pride in your appearence of even recognising that you look good.

If I didnt lose my body and my looks i would have gone down the same genre as sweets for steemit.

Now I am running a diary: the diary of a heroin addict. Check it out...

Great post sweets.

Thank you goldenbrown, i'm intrigued to hear your story, I followed you to see more :)

@sweetssj not everyone uses Instagram so it is only a small part of the world we live, while it might be a large part of the world you live in. What your comment did do was make me ask the question how many people are on Instagram? It turns out 700 million, which was surprising. FB owns Instagram and that influencers charge up to $100,000 for a sponsored post. I think I will submit a story about it later today.
While there are real benefits of social media. Do you realise and some thing which I have known for some time is that is a link to physiological issues. Many people live in a world of oversharing and oversensitive mindset.
I do take pleasure in going against the grain of society and there is nothing wrong with it. Just because an opinion is popular doesn't make it right or true. As a curious person and a critical thinker, much of my knowledge is based on decades of research and observations.
You should try not get offended by someone just because they have a different view to you, it might actually be that they know a bit more about what they are talking about.
I wish you well, if you have the time, have a look at some of my posts, good luck to you.

Arthur, I simply cannot accept your logic particularly when you are claim to be a philosopher and yet can't coherently put together an argument without being snide about it. You should know better.

Your very first issue is that you made an assumption about me, and then you put a measurement of a trait that is totally subjective on a immeasurable scale and outright fleeced me.

I won't take a look at someone's blog who has nothing better to do than complain about the injustice of the world and claim to be a philosopher when they can't even put together an argument without serious logical inconsistencies. You may have spent decades conducting research and observed many things, but that doesn't automatically put you in a set of people that know anything about about whether I am vain, narcissistic or even whether your theories about the negative consequences of social media are true.

I have read plenty of philosophy and done plenty of critical thinking exercises myself, and I wouldn't approach formulating an argument based on lose observations and assumptions.

·
·
·
·
·

Arthur, I was going to make a sharp response, but I went to your page instead! You have too much going for you, to be wasting your time trolling a young lady who is just trying to make a buck. I'm now following you, hope to see some more good content!

Cheers, @arthur-schopen

@underground thanks for that comment and following, it's much appreciated. You have a nice way about you.
I think we are all here for a similar reasons and this young lady has a head start. I am not trying to upset people but some times people get pissed too easy once they hear something that goes against what they believe.
Let's face it. If I had not of made that post I would not have such a nice follower as yourself. So on that basis alone, I am glad I posted. Aside from that, many people are falling into the trap of believing all that is online and it is affecting the "real world".

·

·
·
·

Lots of truth there, Arthur! However, I (and hopefully most others) see Miss SweetSSSJ as a temporary diversion from the ordinary. I'm hoping steemit does NOT become a place for "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" or anything that vacuous!!! LMAO!
SweetSSSJ is clearly much smarter and has more on the ball than "Big-A$$ KimmY" lololZ

·

I keep hearing a lot about indonesia, you guys are on fire! I will have to look into a visit soon!

Wonderful post as always :)

Livin the life @sweetsssj! You set up a good example for people that you only have one life to live, be free... Love the Bahamas! 😎🌞🌴🌎

·

We have to make the most of this one life we have to live!

·
·

so true!

·

I love those pics, that's fantastic!! The spirit is strong in you!

You are gorgeous. How has s guy not scooped you up yet?? 😍

·

who do you think is taking the photos?

adventures in Paradise, @sweetsssj. You compare that elusive blue water to a Tiffany gift box and that's appropriate because a getaway to a tropical isle is a gift in itself more precious than gold or gems.

The wild sky and the ocean breeze make me long for Florida's Gulf coast. I left a friend behind there and the memory fills me with longing.

I love peacocks and once again, your eye for colour is predominant in the photo shoot.

I was impressed with the blend of video and still shots. The idea of a private island verges on a dream. It must have been peaceful and relaxing enjoying those pink sands and the long white lines of waves.

Another beautiful post...

·

thank you johnjgeddes you really did read all my writing and took notice. I happen to really like Tiffany blue but not because of its association with Tiffany and their jewellery, I just love that shade of blue!

It sounds like you had a special friend there, one special enough to share an intricate connection to the Florida Gulf Coast setting. I hope that friendship was everlasting..

I'm really thankful that I had the chance to meet the peacocks and see them roam around freely, it was quite a surprise to see quite so many. I didn't see any make their beautiful displays of their plumage though which was a shame.

After being in Atlantis for so long and with so many people around, I really did need this trip to somewhere secluded and private. It's like visiting a dream within a dream, mind boggling but that's my honest feeling about that.

Thanks again for taking a look :)

·
·

I know a lot of people read the title and scroll the pics. I never do that. And anything I write is the honest truth, so be prepared, Girl, if you try to pull back just a little. Now, you're on my radar :)

Great pictures as always!

Hi @sweetssj,

Thank you so much for posting something like this and inspiring as many people as you do. I myself am very new to steemit but have already invested more then $500 and plan on being a very active user! I love the fact that you are posting your travels and allowing everyone to see the amazing world we live in, as well as educating us in the process. I am an online instructor with more than 300,000+ students and just wanted to thank you for all you do! Will be looking forward to more of your postings! -JoeParys

Just wanted to leave a comment. Cheers!!

·

Just wanted to leave a reply, Cheers! 😊

The places you visit certainly remind me of a phrase "paradise on earth" at times. I've never seen sea with that color! How warm was this place at daytime? Too much heat and I'll just melt away..

·

Our search of paradise takes us to such amazing places. The sea at Bahamas is really something else! It's very hot at this time of year, usually around 35-40 degrees C!

·
·

I might not survive +40C for long, I'm used to handful of +20C days per each summer!

Talking about paradise on earth - what place you have already visited comes closest to that or do they already go above? :)

Awesome

what can i say...wow..a true steemit ambassador drawing steemit on the sandy sea shore...you just looked like a mermaid turn human! very pretty there...
Your day at Rose Island, Sandy Toes swimming in the sea and sipping cocktail is dope! the cocks reminds me of some local breeds that cockrows every early morning...and the peacocks...amazingly beautiful
now you making me jealous...jumping in joy alone while am busy on some boring tasks...hmmm...Rose island here i come!;)
Wow! is that you on that swim suite or some beauty from above? you look awesome dear...nice array of foods..can see rice, marcaroni, chicken,sausage etc...guess all has been pre booked for?
great trip there...as always you did well and keep enjoying yourself...you deserve it!

Hi @sweetsssj, I love your first pic. But all the others also good. Thank you so much.

Honestly, your posts are just constantly improving!

All of your pictures are like perfect LOL! Coloring is amazing. It's very inspiring. How many pictures do you have to end up taking at the end of the day to filter through to the best ones?

Nice video by the way. I can see the work of that gimbal :P Looks like you had an amazing adventure there!

You're looking great by the way! I think I need to start hitting the gym hard and start toning down for when I start travelling :P

Keep on keeping on my friend!

·

Zane, thank you! I think I probably had a thousand pictures to sort through with this one.. Took aaaages!
As for the place, what a place !!! It's so nice to have most of the island to yourself and just a few others, there's so much freedom to do anything you want and just go roam. And of course, my gimbal helps with the videos :)

Eat well, and do plenty of exercise!

Stay well friend 😊

another great travel article of great place you get to visit

Thanks for sharing @sweetssj. The Bahamas have never crossed my mind as a travel destination. Seeing how beautiful it is from your post, I must go now hahaha. I'm eagerly waiting to see where your next destination is after the Bahamas. Will definitely be following your posts.

Thank you again, very nice pics of you in the water close to the beach!

·

thank you lucky.digger, glad you liked them! :)

·
·

These are the best words I have heard in a year: "SANDY TOES"

Now, are you going to be open your own Cafe somewhere called "Sandy Toes"?

Welcome to "Sweet SSSJ's Sandy Toes"...

Well, better to just brand it, buy the real estate, rent out the real estate and the brand. Business can be very tough.

·
·
·

haha you have a very business oriented mind. Very interesting to hear your ideas though :)

·
·
·
·

Please excuse SSSJ, I think business day and night, I overdosed on Warren Buffett... and always admired the Berkshire Hathaway way, have you read this one?

I love the snorkeling video

A visit to rose island, sandy toes and snorkeling with Lion Fish, it sound so interesting. I must say that I love the colour combination of your swimming suit, you look sexy in it. The island is so beautiful, the pictures you took are so nice, the snorkeling is very fascinated. you equal notice the roaming chicken, the peacocks are beautiful. Your steemit signature on the sand shows that a passionate steemit blogger visited the island. Good job my dear @ sweetsssj. Upvoted. Keep it coming

I love snorkeling! I saw a lion fish in the US Virgin Islands when I snorkeled there. Cool peacocks as well!

·

I feel like such a newbie snorkler i have to wear a life vest! It was so much fun seeing so many tropical fishes though, and the Lion fish was soo beautiful!

@sweetsssj - This trip report has simply stunning photos of you. I must admit, I was totally distracted and paid no attention to anything other than the lovely peacock and you on the rose island. The photos of you on the island are fit for any calendar model pictures! I love the lion fish video and the gif of your swimming are amazing too. I also notice that there is always a steemit icon on your face plus the nice steemit promotion with you next to steemit written in sand. Nice.

I am continuing my focus on wildlife. Today I wrote a blog on Snoozing parrots with my musings about Thomas Carlyle equating parrots to economists. I request you to take a look at it when you have time. Your comments, as always, would be an encouragement and incentive for me to make better blogs. Thanks

·

haha thank you! Had a look at your post about the parrots absolutely gorgeous! upvoted! :)

super

I recommend you come to Barbados, especially during the summer. Great post as usual.

With how much you did here I feel like you must live there! You must have done multiple things a day. It looks like a beautiful place i would love to go back and visit again some time. Have you been to other islands in the Bahamas such as st kitts ?

·

Thanks! I only stayed for 10 days there so each day was really full of activities, I think it's always hard to balance out getting some relaxation time and really exploring the place in the short time you stay. Next time I will have to visit St. Kitts, sadly didn't have the time this visit :(

Very Beautiful Beach and magnificent Rose Island

·

indeed!

U are amaizing! I love your blog! very nice pics and places. u get a new fallower!

·

thank you h2kgraphy appreciated 😊

I'm here for those random chickens guiding your way to the beach 🐥 🐔 🐓 🐤 👍
What a great excursion @sweetsssj, I give you a lot of credit for doing all that snorkeling after that spectacular looking island lunch spread 😄
You've visited a handful of beautiful spots there so far, so now it's time to get serious and plan out the other 690+ islands 🙌 😳

·

Haha sandstorm, those chickens were EVERYWHERE, making a lot of noise too, who would have known they were so quick on their feet..

You know, I think it might take a significant number of years to get through the other 690+ islands, but I think it might just well be worth it! 😊

·
·

I've seen first hand how quick those chickens can be, it's pretty impressive LOL
The coverage of entirety of the Bahamas would be an exhausting but epic feat, that's for sure!

Beautiful girl!

·

thanks 😊

Amazing paradise :) Thx for the postcards :)

·

you're welcome herverisson!

This is just awesome.
Those underwater shots <3
Keep exploring
Upvoted ;)

·

aww thank you olivercuico, sorry in advance! (or you're welcome 😊)

·
·

OMG she noticed me! ♥
Bahamas is one of my life's bucket list. :-)

Love those vibrant colors! Bahama's famous pink beach, cool!

·

thanks joy! You would love it there I'm sure of it!

·
·

You are very welcome! Thanks to your posts, now my travel bucket list gets very full haha

Such beautiful beaches in the Bahamas. Just the way I remember it when I went. I dive and snorkel too. Lion fish are so pretty, but they need to die. They have no natural predator and are destroying the life as they explode in numbers.

Oh.. i had no idea they were a parasite.. I didn't actually see too many of them but maybe i'm not an experienced person so I can't say. Thank you for the info!

No worries. Yeah, when we dive we take bags with us to capture them. We have feed dead ones to a few larger fish, but its not very common for other fish to eat them.
We are not trying to be inhumane, its just the lion fish are killing ecosystems.
They are beautiful fish though.

You are very beautiful and your posts are very good

they marcusorlyius, my photographer is very camera shy! I think that's actually quite ironic but more common than you would think! Next trip i'm going to introduce them a bit more :)
