3 reasons why Castaway Cay is amazing

As part of our 3-night Bahamian Cruise on the Disney Magic we had a one day stop at Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island where Disney Cruise Line guests get to spend a lovely day.

Castaway Cay is one of my favorite places in the world now. There I discovered what it is to just relax on vacation and I loved it!

Here are 3 reasons why Castaway Cay is amazing:

 

1) You will never get bored

We thought we might get bored while on Castaway Cay, so we pre-booked the Castaway Cay Getaway Package so that we could enjoy snorkeling, having fun on the inflatable inner tube and biking. The thing is: we never got bored! We enjoyed more the inflatable inner tube but ended up not going to the snorkeling pond and not picking up the bike because sitting with that amazing view of the beach was fun enough!

No way you will get bored with this view!

But seriously, don’t over plan for your day at Castaway Cay because there are so many options of boat rentals, kayaking, water slide and more.

Plus, there is also Scuttle’s Cove, a children’s club on the island with the same counselors from the ship, which is cool for the kids to bond with their new friends and for parents to have their alone time.

And even if you don’t want to pre-book anything, you will have plenty of fun things to do!

 

2) You can eat all day long and have lunch with a view

Eating is a big part of cruising, and regardless if your are aboard the ship or in Castaway Cay, you will have plenty of opportunities to eat.

At first we were not sure if we could bring food to the loungers but when we saw other people doing that, we did not hesitate and had lunch with a view!

I was also pleasantly surprised to find a fruit stand with yummy fruits for us to enjoy.

On the drink front, my husband had a Corona, that comes in a plastic bottle that is quite peculiar (and be careful not to let it spill on the sand, it’s fairly easy to let that happen).

I chose a strawberry smoothie on the nice souvenir coco cup.

3) You will relax and have a great time

Regardless if you planned a lot or absolutely nothing for your visit to Castaway Cay, you will be able to relax.

There is just something about that island that allows you to relax and have a great time at the same time. Beautiful views, fantastic water and an amazing breeze will make your visit a perfect stopover before returning to shore.

Relax!

Whatever you decide, you will have a great time at this amazing island!
