Castaway Cay, Bahamas - Disney Cruise Lines Private Island

Beach Options

Island Adventures Await
Castaway Cay invites cruisers to enjoy balmy tropical weather and world-class recreation on a Bahamian oasis with signature Disney hospitality.  After disembarking to Castaway Cay, you can obtain beach towels and use your convenient Key to the World cards for retail transactions on the island.

Castaway Family Beach

A pristine beach lined with colorful umbrellas. Each one is the centerpiece for two adjustable lounge chairs and two beach chairs. There are a few hammocks scattered about for your use as well. Fun for the whole family, this beach features lounge chairs, beach umbrellas, sand chairs and even a few hammocks. Go early for the best selection.

Pelican Plunge at Castaway Cay is within swimming distance of the shore. The attraction features a 2,400-square-foot floating platform with 2 water slides - one is an enclosed corkscrew slide and the other is a 140-foot-long open slide into the ocean. The platform also includes a giant bucket that dumps hundreds of gallons of water on guests, as well as four water cannons to shoot targets placed in the water.

Another fun spot on the island is a 2,400-square-foot play area called Spring-a-Leak. This water playground is made to look like it was hit by a storm, with leaking pipes and broken plumbing squirting water all over the guests. One of the focal points of the area is a splash pad with water jets to squirt and spray the guests.  This area is partially shaded with "broken" parts of the structure, so it's a great place for the kids to play!

The Snorkeling Lagoon is located here, and features a snorkeling "path" to follow to see tropical fish and special buried "hidden treasure". Snorkeling is best early in the day, before the sand has been kicked up by all the swimmers.

Serenity Bay "Adults Only" Beach

Adults looking to escape from all of that will enjoy the quiet relaxation of Serenity Bay, open only to ages 18 and up.  Serenity Bay is all about simplicity. As the final stop on the tram system (utilizing a separate tram entirely from the other two stops), it’s tucked away in its own cove. Guests will find a bar and long stretches of beach in both directions, with little else.

Located on the far northwestern end of the island is Serenity Bay, a secluded beach for adults 18 and older only. This is where adults can enjoy the pampering of an open-air cabana massage, sip a drink, or relax and enjoy the quiet of the beach with no children around. A buffet lunch is served.

Several bars are interspersed throughout the beach areas, and they serve a variety of tropical and soft drinks. A favorite is the Konk Kooler, a libation made with light and dark rum, orange juice, passion fruit and coconut cream (it can be made without the rum) that can also be purchased in a souvenir glass.

Sports Beach

Meet at the Sports Beach for beloved beach pastimes, including volleyball and tetherball.  Offers water equipment rental as well and a soccer area.
