Castaway Cay – A Hidden Hide-A-Way


Ever wonder where the best little hide-a-way is for a relaxing vacation?  Well, Disney found it in the Bahamas and named it Castaway Cay.  This little private island was once known as Gorda Cay, and is located near Great Abaco Island.

When you arrive to Castaway Cay, which you can only get to on a Disney Cruise Ship, you pull right up next to the island.  One of my favorite things, is you can literally walk off the ship and be on the island, take a step the other way and you are back on the ship!  As you walk your way over to the beach areas, you will pass Marges Barges, home of many different excursions, the Castaway Post Office, and, the one and only, Flying Dutchman!

Castaway Cay has so much to offer!  Like everything Disney does, it caters to all age groups. For the adults that want some private beach time, you can visit Serenity Bay, away from the noise and hustle of the other beach areas, and relax in some quiet beach time, a massage, and even occupy a private ocean front cabana.

Then there is the teens only beach, which has plenty to offer in the water as well as out for teens of all ages.  The Hide Out is a teens-only activity area. Many activities are planned to keep the teens engaged in tons of fun events throughout the day as well.

And, let’s not forget our little ones.  Scuttle’s Cove is a free supervised area for the little ones, provided by Disney counselors.


Along the family beaches there are two in water play areas, Pelican Plunge and Spring-a-Leak.


The food and shopping on Castaway Cay is also something extra special.  There are open-air BBQ dining locations, 2 shops featuring Castaway Cay gifts and souvenirs, as well as a post office where you can mail your friends back home and have the one of a kind post mark from Castaway Cay, Bahamas!
