Port of Call Castaway Cay, Bahamas
Castaway Cay Shore Excursions
The nearest beach to the dock is Boat Beach - here you’ll find a wide range of watercraft to hire. Pick from aqua trikes, pedal boats, hobie cats and kayaks. Just offshore lies the mock-up Flying Dutchman from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, giving the beach a very unique flavor.
Beyond Boat Beach lies Family Beach, a lovely sweep of white sand jam-packed with fun activities for the family. Enjoy the excellent swimming and the two fascinating snorkeling trails. Behind the beach you’ll find the Conched-Out bar, the Cookies BBQ pavilion, and the She Sells souvenir store.
Pelican Plunge is a great hit with kids, and not surprisingly so, since it has two water slides that splash out into the lagoon and an amazing tip-bucket splash. Those fain to face all this excitement with their children may prefer to chill-out at the nearby Heads-Up bar.
Bikes are available to hire at the Bike Rentals stand at Goofy’s Sand Lot. Follow the 2 mile Bike Trail which heads along the deserted aircraft runway then loops around the northern end of the island. At the furthest point there’s an observation tower with great views back over the island and your docked cruise ship. Expect the cycling to be warm work, but luckily there are water coolers along the trail.
Serenity Bay Beach
Serenity Bay Beach, the furthest beach away from the dock, is an exclusive beach area for adults. Forget those noisy little-ones as you unwind to the gentle sounds of rustling palms and waves lapping against the sand. Next to the beach sits aeroplane-themed Castaway Air Bar, perfect for a relaxing drink.
