Our cruise ship stopped here for the day. Beach was rocky and water was beautiful. Beaches had some beach erosion probably from the hurricanes. But it surely is a beautiful stop.

I read a lot of negative reviews about this location but although the water is rocky when you first get in, it's fine as you go further out and water shoes resolve that problem! Upon a walk away from the beach chair area, you'll find...More

This is a magnificent facility. Sidewalks, Tiki bars, food, souvenirs, excellent and very clean restrooms. Plenty of lounge chairs for all. Only drawback for us was the weather and the rocky beach bottom. Wear some type of protective footwear if you are in the water.

Nice private “island”. Actually it’s just the tip of the very large and long island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. It’s owned by the Princess/Carnival brand. You have to tender to and from the island and that does take some time. Once there it is...More

Always enjoy stopping at Princess Cays. This is just a fun, relaxing beach day. This is a tender port and before Princess only used their own tender boats but they are now also using private larger tender boats as well. This provided a much smoother...More

Once your outside of the Port and Cays, there are local taxi's available. We didn't make use of them at this particular port of call, but the local onboard expert should be able to advise you of the local companies. Enjoy!

You can walk as far as you want along the coast. We walked a couple miles but didn’t see any actual trails. They have the ATV tour so they have to have trails to explore.
