Next Stop: Princess Cays – An Exclusive Private Island to enjoy Au Naturel
Our desire to travel includes longing to experience life in paradise with nothing more than a cool breeze and a drink in our hand. One of the most popular destinations aboard a cruise is the private island experience. Princess Cays provides something for everyone whether it’s relaxing on the beach, soaking up the sun or taking advantage of the numerous water sports available. We are excited to be visiting this new private island destination in 2023.
Princess Cays is your private beach getaway situated on more than 40 acres and features pristine sandy beaches surrounded by sparkling clear blue water. This port of call is located on the southern tip of the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. Guests will be transported to the resort by water shuttles running continuously throughout the day. You have an option to go to either direction once ashore. All the facilities at Princess Cays are connected by boardwalks which help preserve the fragile nature of this coral-based island. There is a craft market near the entrance as well as additional shops along the walkways run by local venders. Make sure to bring some cash ashore; you may just find that perfect souvenir or local craft.
There are plenty of lounge chairs to go around; some may even choose to rent a private cabana or take advantage of the clam shells for rent; either way, it won’t be hard to find an area to call your own. A variety of beach packages can be reserved through the cruise line’s shore excursion desk in advance.
No need to head back to the ship for a bite to eat; the cruise line prepares a full buffet and BBQ at Grill Crazy and the Sea Breeze Grill. Help yourself to a burger or try the jerk chicken along with an assortment of salads, fruit, and desserts. Soft drinks are available with your meal and four bars around the resort sell cocktails and other drinks; just present your room key and have it charged to your shipboard account.
Princess Cays is the perfect destination and ideal as one of our exclusive ports of call for our Big Nude Boat 2023 cruise. There are two reefs right offshore that provide excellent snorkeling opportunities. You can spend the morning taking advantage of the water sports such as kayaking or get a team together for volleyball; perhaps take a shore excursion either fishing or coming face to face with a stingray. After lunch, spend the rest of your day relaxing on the beach or meeting new friends while cooling off in the turquoise ocean. No matter how you spend your day, it will be amazing.
This port of call will definitely be on your Bare Bucket List; just remember, it can only be enjoyed au naturel when you sail with Bare Necessities.
