It seems like nearly everywhere you go in the Caribbean, there’s a hint of Europe. At Sandals South Coast though, the European flair is even more at the center of your vacation. Located about 75 miles southwest of Montego Bay, Sandals South Coast truly is your European getaway in the heart of the Caribbean.
The resort offers 372 rooms across 20 room categories. From Beachfront Deluxe to an over-the-water Butler bungalow, there is something for every taste and budget. The best part is that each room and suite overlook the beach. What really makes this resort unique though is how the rooms are laid out. Calling on its European theme, the resort is divided into three villages – French, Italian and Dutch. Each village has all the charm and architectural beauty unique to the country it represents. As if that isn’t enough, the resort sits in the midst of a 500-acre nature preserve, giving you the chance to soak in all the beauty mother nature has to offer.
Of course, exploring all that natural beauty is bound to work up an appetite, but this is Sandals – they can take care of that. You’ll have eight dining options at Sandals South Coast – from a quick bite at a real Jamaican jerk shack to the elegantly served, pan-Caribbean fare at Eleanor’s. There truly is something for every palate.
You’ll have plenty to do between meals as well. If just relaxing on two miles of pristine beach isn’t your thing, you’ll be able to take part in any number of land and water sports including water skiing and windsurfing – all included. Divers will love the daily diving excursions and wannabe divers will have the chance to get certified on property (certification at additional cost). Then again, if all you want to do is lounge by one of their three freshwater pools, that’s okay too.
Want to get off-property for a bit? Island Routes has you covered. For an additional fee, you can enjoy everything from bamboo rafting down the Great River to a Dune Buggy Trek.
At night, you’ll find more than enough to stay busy. The resort features seven bars, including the over-water Latitudes and the Casablanca Martini Bar for an evening of singing by the piano. There are also daily events, including the Caribbean Carnival Beach Party and Reggae Night.
Like any Sandals resort, you’ll be treated like royalty and entertained at every turn, even if your definition of entertainment is unwinding on the beach. Each resort is unique though and Sandals South Coast is no exception. Enjoy the elegance of Europe and the charm and natural beauty of Jamaica in one exquisite vacation.

This resort is located in the outer islands of the Bahamas, specifically on Great Exuma. It sounds like it would be a challenge to get to, but really the trip typically can be done with one connection at the most. Once you arrive though, you’ll feel like you couldn’t be further away from home. The resort sits on one mile of beautiful beach with some of the most crystal-clear waters you’ll ever see just steps away. This makes the resort ideal for those who enjoy being on (or in) the water with plenty of boating, fishing and diving options to choose from.
The resort itself offers the accommodations you’ve come to expect from Sandals. The 249 suites range from a Luxury Club Level room all the way to the one-of-a-kind Royal Estate Villa. One interesting note about Sandals Emerald Bay is that all accommodations are Club Level or higher, meaning that Concierge service is included. So, just when you thought Sandals service was as good as it could possibly be, prepare to step it up a notch with Concierge service. For those who have become accustomed to the pampering that Sandals Butler service provides. Butler-level options are also available.
Of course, everyone who visits Sandals raves about the dining and Sandals Emerald Bay doesn’t disappoint. Here, you’ll find Sandals favorites such as La Parisienne, Il Cielo and the Bombay Club – just a few of the eleven dining options on property. Once the evening progresses, you’ll find plenty to do. From the six bars, to themed nights (hint: don’t miss the chocolate buffet on White Night), to a host of entertainment options, there’s always something for everyone.
Without a doubt, for some, the beach at Sandals Emerald Bay is enough to do in itself. But if non-stop beach isn’t for you, there’s plenty to do. The resort offers three pools (including the Caribbean’s largest zero-entry pool), and array of water sports, as well as tennis and beach volleyball, just to name a few. For that extra touch of relaxation, indulge yourself at Red Lane Spa.
Golfers are in for a particular treat at this resort, as Sandals Emerald Bay has been named the Bahamas best golf hotel at the 2018 World Golf Awards. The resort is home to an 18-hole, par 72 course designed by Greg Norman. The course is so impressive, it’s home to the Bahamas Great Exuma Classic, a PGA TOUR-sanctioned Korn Ferry Tour event.
Now, what about that “swimming with the pigs” part we mentioned earlier? Through a partnership with Island Routes, there are always amazing excursions available at Sandals resorts. This one is a bit unique though! On this excursion, you’ll take a 35 foot power cat through the waters of the Bahamas, passing the private-island homes of celebrities along the way. Your trip culminates with an opportunity to feed the Exuma’s swimming pigs – a memory that will last forever.
As you can see, whatever your definition of relaxation, Sandals Emerald Bay has something for everyone. No matter what accommodations you choose or activities you participate in though, the one thing you’ll always be able to count on is that special Sandals touch that makes every vacation memorable.
