We visited two islands in the Bahamas, Princess Cays and Nassau!

We stopped there because the winds in Grand Turks and Caicos were very strong and the cruise would not be able to anchor, a shame as it was our most desired destination. However, we were surprised by a small island called Princess Cays, Princess Cays is a tourist resort on the southern tip of the island of Eleuthera, Bahamas. It is owned by Princess Cruises, who use it as a port of call on Caribbean cruises. Contrary to the implication of its name, it is located on Eleuthera, not separate islands.

Once in Nassau, escape the hustle and bustle of the tourist island and treat yourself to a wonderful day at the beach on Blue Lagoon Island, officially known as Salt Cay. Climb aboard a dinghy at nearby Paradise Island and cruise through the historic port of Nassau, disembarking at Blue Lagoon Island. Step onto the soft white sand, swim in the sparkling lagoon waters or swing freely in a hammock. Watch the dolphins and sea lions inside the marine park and use the island's changing rooms, buoys and games area. When it's time to eat, enjoy a delicious grilled lunch with fruit drinks and lemonade, the place is amazing and to date no beach we've been to has been as beautiful as this one, not even in Australia!

On the beach it was just me and Lidia, alone in paradise!

We took advantage and swam with the Dolphin for just $180 dollars (the real was 2.80 at this time) it was an incredible, fascinating trip.
