Bahamas: Private Island Experience

Princess Cays is located on the southern part of the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. It is a private port of call owned by Princess Cruise Lines. The island is called the “birthplace of the Bahamas” and is known for its white-sand beaches, lush mangrove tress and turquoise waters. My husband, daughter and I were escaping the cold weather at home, and all we wanted was clear skies, tons of sunshine and gorgeous white-sand beaches, and let me tell you, Princess Cays delivered all three.

The Crown Princess which is the name of the ship we were on, was tendered close to the island thus, we took a tender boat to go ashore. Once there we had already booked a bungalow for the day and was taken to it after a short drive. The bungalows were all in a row and painted with bright colors. They all had lounge chairs, an air conditioner, an area on the side to rise off the sand as well as tables and chairs inside to have lunch. Some snacks were already available for us when we arrived.

We had lunch inside our bungalow and spent most of our day on the beach, playing in the sand. There were many aquatic equipment and activities offered to explore the turquoise waters. I saw some people go kayaking, banana boating, paddle boating, snorkeling and parasailing. On my way I also spotted a playground for kids and an area to play volleyball. There were so many activities to keep everybody entertained. Most people just wanted to relax and enjoy the warmth of the sun.

Final Thoughts

Princess Cays is the perfect tropical retreat for people like us (sorry we are boring people), who just wanted to spend a day at the beach and catch some rays. The bungalows gave us additional comfort; however, there were also many other options, such as beach lounges (over 3,000) and clamshell beach chairs. I hope this post gave you a quick overview of how we spent out day in Princess Cays.
