Coco Cay, Bahamas
Beautiful Coco Cay
English is spoken here and everything on the island can be charged to your shipboard account, with the exception of hair braiding, which is paid for in US Currency.
The Beach at Coco Cay
Coco Cay is Royal Caribbean's private island in the Bahamas. White sand beaches and bright blue waters surround this tropical paradise reserved for Royal Caribbean guests. This deserted island was once known as Little Stirrup Cay. Located within the Berry Island chain of the Bahamas, about 50 miles from Nassau, Coco Cay is the perfect setting for a beach adventure. Coco Cay has been recently renovated and now includes updated nature trails and Caylanas Aqua Park. There is an additional charge for entrance to this floating playground, however. There are numerous hammocks scattered in shady enclaves, plenty of lounge chairs line the beach and lots of remote areas to explore.
Coco Cay enjoys a subtropical climate with mild winters, seldom dipping below 60°F. Average temperatures range in the low to upper 80’s; with water temperature never below 72°. With that said, however, just like Florida, these are averages and during winter months be prepared for an occasional cold front to cause drastic temperature drops.
Arriving at the Tender Wharf on Coco Cay
The ship will anchor offshore and you will be tendered to the island.
Not much to buy here. Minimal souvenirs and hair braiding are the only offerings.
The Volley Ball Sand Courts on Coco Cay
What Coco Cay lacks in shopping, is more than made up for in activities. You can join in a lively game of volley ball or simply watch.
The Water Slide on Coco Cay
A sunken airplane and a shipwrecked replica of Queens Anne’s Revenge make snorkeling and SCUBA diving popular. But, so are jet skiing, parasailing and paddle boats.
Snorkeling and Sun Bathing at Coco Cay
If you wish to enjoy a little more restful adventure, rent a floating mat and bask in the calm ocean waters. Relax on the beach, play a game of volleyball, sip on a cool drink, listen to the steel drum band, or enjoy the aqua park.
Heading Towards the Restaurant on Coco Cay
An island-style seaside barbeque is the fare for the day. Water is free, but sodas and cocktails may be purchased. This is the place to try a “Coco Loco”, Coco Cay’s signature drink and one of my favorite tropical cocktails.
