This beautiful private island is open to all who wants to experience Bahamian beauty and adventure firsthand. A trip to Blue Lagoon Island promises countless opportunities for fun, whether you want to simply relax by the beach and catch some rays, swim with a dolphin, or venture into the sparkling waters in a sea kayak.
Though just a short trip away from Nassau, Blue Lagoon Island offers the peaceful feeling of seclusion that you can only experience on a private island. The nature alone is enough to draw most visitors- whether it's the clear turquoise waters, native coconut palm trees, pristine white sandy beaches, beautiful natural vegetation, tropical birds, or coral reefs teeming with native species of fish.
If you get restless after lounging on the beach, there are numerous attractions you can check out. The Dolphin Encounters, where you can swim with dolphins and sea lions, is continually ranked among the most popular attractions in the Bahamas.
Review by Laura T, February 2013
Loved it, and would go back again, but next time it will be easier to get my travel mates to go earlier so we can stay the whole day, and maybe too 2 or three of the dolphin/ sea lion activities. The animals are beautifully trained and a delight to experience. Take your mandatory training early before the very crowded spaces become unbearably hot ( we were there in July). We enjoyed a couple hours on a mostly abandoned beach on the backside of the island before doing a dolphin activity. Only complaints? The food - other than the beans and rice - was blah , and felt like a waste of my precious gastronomic time, and was like eating in a school cafeteria (hot dog/ hamburger options) blah. Bring your own food, the bar worked out alright. ;)
Blue Lagoon Island is located 5 km (3 mi) from Nassau and is accessible by ferry throughout the day.
