Hi! We are in Nassau for a day (cruise ship stop), and wanted to check out a nice beach and a good snorkeling spot. We have our own snorkeling equipment, and wanted to save some money and not take a tour. How can we get to Rose island and how much would it cost? Are there any public beaches? Good places to eat nearby? Are the beaches shady or wide open? Any other recommendations for a decent snorkeling spot on a nice stretch of beach? Mostly, I'm trying to avoid shelling out $100/pp for a tour.
