Riding Rock Resort

Riding Rock Resort & Marina is one of only two resorts located on the scenic San Salvador oceanfront. Built, owned and operated by the William’s family since the 1960’s, the resort is and always has been dedicated to the comfort and convenience of scuba divers, fishermen and water sports enthusiasts.

Riding Rock offers the very best Bahamas diving in a setting that’s truly unique. We work hard to make your time out of the water as exciting as your time spent exploring our spectacular coral reefs and amazing walls.

All rooms are air-conditioned and offer cable TV, a mini-fridge, private bath, porch or balcony, outside drying hooks, tile floors, and daily housekeeping. For your convenience, beach towels can be found in your room to be used at the pool only. If there isn’t a beach towel in your room, kindly speak to the front desk and one will gladly be provided. Beach towels for diving are provided on the boats.

The resort also features a freshwater swimming pool and access to a breathtaking white sand beach to the South of the rooms.

The Driftwood Bar

The Driftwood Bar opens at 4:00 pm and will close when the last customer staggers out down the steps! It’s a great place to check emails or share your dive images utilizing our free Wi-Fi – which is also available in the restaurant. Beer, wine, sodas, and a wonderful variety of mixed drinks and blended island drinks are available from our expert local bartenders. Cable TV brings in sports games from home. The management sponsors two cocktail parties each week. Try the ring toss game or relax on the open-air patio overlooking a beautiful beach. Don’t forget to leave some personal artwork behind to adorn the ceiling and walls.
