Beach Options on Perfect Day at CocoCay
Island Adventures Await
CocoCay invites cruisers to enjoy balmy tropical weather, relaxation and recreation on a Bahamian oasis with something for everyone. Be sure and bring your beach towel from your stateroom with you as they are not available on the island (except if you purchase Thrill Waterpark tickets or a cabana). There are several beaches on CocoCay to choose from with the ones closest to the ship being more crowded and the ones further away (all of the way to the other side of the island) offer more seclusion. CocoCay is a natural coral island and some of the beach areas are rocky (especially the snorkeling area of beach) or have difficult to detect coral rocks just below the sand and it is a good idea to wear water shoes to protect your feet. Wherever you go, don't forget the reef safe sunscreen!!
Chill Beach Beach
Snorkel beach is on the east side of the island and is straight off the cruise pier and to the left. The Snorkel Shack allows you to rent snorkel gear. If you bring your own gear you are still required to wear a snorkel vest which are available for rent. In the snorkeling lagoon you can find stingrays, tropical fish, an airplane and a sunken ship (with cannons!).
Lifeguards patrol the swimming beaches on CocoCay to ensure safety for everyone. Lounge chairs with umbrellas are available as well as hammocks in the shade of the palm trees. These are first come, first served, are non-reservable and are less plentiful than the lounge chairs so get there early if you want one. Floating mats are also available as a daily rental from the rental shack near the snorkel shack.
Cabanas get you out of the sun, if you want a break from it, they include the cabana concierge, a beautiful cabana with 4 lounge chairs, plush couch and 2 plush loungers.
Lagoon beach is an internal beach to the island in the cove with the fountain near Skipper’s Grill, Chill Grill and the Oasis Lagoon.
Looking to escape from all of that and enjoy the quiet relaxation of a peaceful secluded beach? On the south side of the island is South Beach which is the furthest beach from the cruise pier however they do run trams to and from the pier area.
If you enjoy a quiet day on the beach without the partying and noise and enjoy a little extra shade then this is the place for you. These Clamshells are located on South Beach near the South Beach Bar. Included in your Clamshell rental is a floating mat to enjoy for the day.
