If you are planning a trip to Nassau and looking for things to do in Nassau, one of my favorite Nassau shore excursions is making a trip to Pearl Island Bahamas. Guests visiting Pearl Island will find a secluded beach, a snorkeling reef and a small bar serving food & drinks.
Located just 30 minutes via boat from Nassau, Pearl Island is a small private island that has its own lighthouse, sandy beaches, and water activities.
For a small fee, you can spend the day laying on the beach, snorkeling their very own reef, or taking a kayak out on the ocean.
Pearl Island, Bahamas
You will find a relaxed setting with beach chairs by the ocean, a shaded deck, bathroom facilities (showers as well), and a bar & grill. There is even Wi-Fi on the island.
We recently spent part of the day during a Nassau shore excursion at Pearl Island Bahamas.
After a few hours of fantastic snorkeling right off the coast of the island, our boat docked and we spent time checking out all this popular destination has to offer.
You’ll find Pearl Island surrounded by crystal blue water with 2 small sandy beaches.
There are plenty of beach chairs scattered on several sections of the island that will allow you to relax and enjoy the view.
If you book a trip here, you will get a full Bahamian buffet lunch, a beach chair w/ umbrella, access to kayak & paddle boards (rental fee), and a free photo souvenir.
You can even spend time snorkeling on the nearby reef.
Probably what we appreciated most about our trip is that there was hardly anyone there.
Pearl Island does a great job of limiting the number of guests per day so that you can fully enjoy each aspect it has to offer without feeling like you are on top of each other!
What to Bring on an Excursion to Pearl Island
- Beachwear (swimsuit, cover-up, hat, sunglasses & flip flops)

- Form of payment (for drinks)
I think you’ll find a trip to Pearl Island a great way to spend any day. I know we really enjoyed our time there!
