08 Oct Explore the Bahamas: Book a Day Trip to Blue Lagoon Island
There’s no better place than Paradise Island for those looking to enjoy the sand, surf, and sunshine. This Bahamas island, located just off Nassau, is home to Cabbage Beach and some of the best adventures around. After exploring local distilleries, going on a fishing excursion, or enjoying a beach day, escape the crowds by staying at Paradise Island Beach Club. Our beachfront hotel and timeshare resort is just minutes away from some of the top activities and attractions in the Bahamas, including Blue Lagoon Island.
What Is Blue Lagoon Island?
Blue Lagoon Island, also known as Salt Cay, is just three miles off from Nassau, making it the perfect day trip for our guests. Centuries ago, Charles King-Harmon bought the island from the British Crown and owned it for 11 years before selling it to a Bahamian man. The island has changed hands throughout the years and evolved into a top spot for tourists looking to explore secluded beaches and natural habitats.
Your Guide to Blue Lagoon Activities
To get to this secluded island, you’ll need to take a scenic boat ride from Paradise Island Ferry Terminal. Boats depart to and from the island at various times during the day, so you can find a time that works with your schedule.
When planning your trip to Salt Cay, you have plenty of adventures to select from.
- Tour the island on a segway. A knowledgeable guide will show you unique and historical sites as you learn about island folklore, diverse marine life, and more.
- If your goal is to soak in the sunshine and relax, the Beach Day Package is what you’re looking for. This package includes a grilled lunch, use of the private beaches, and access to the land and water inflatable parks. For even more fun, check out the VIP Beach Day option.
- A popular option for visitors to the island is the variety of animal encounters. Go swimming with dolphins or get up close and personal with sea lions. Other animals you can experience include stingrays and sharks.
- Explore the island’s ecosystem on an eco-nature walking tour. See spots not open to other visitors to get a unique view of the island as you take in the stunning scenery.
After a fun-filled day on Blue Lagoon, enjoy your escape from the crowds by returning to Paradise Island Beach Club. Relax by one of our two heated pools or grab a bite to eat at Reef Bar, our delicious on-site restaurant that offers both Bahamian and American dishes.
