Nice relaxing end of trip

Clean beach, good service and bungalows are available if you want to pay for them. There are clamshells to shield you from the sun also; we chose a bungalow not knowing for sure... read more

The beach and water are beautiful. I would have rated this higher if I were a water/beach person. It is mostly for water related activities - swimming, snorkeling, laying on the beach, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, etc. I found the tender ride from and return to the cruise ship the most exciting. The ship's staff did a great job of... More

If you have come here its because you took a princess cruise and you have an opportunity to book excursions. There are plenty of things to do here, but the stand-out best is the dune buggy rental/tour. The machines are not in the best condition with their mismatched tires and broken parts but I think they are at least safe.... More

This island is owned by Princess Cruise lines. Nice beach with chairs and cabanas. Also gift shops and some local vendors. There was a beach bar and music. Make a nice stop and for peach, quiet and relaxation.

Clean beach, good service and bungalows are available if you want to pay for them. There are clamshells to shield you from the sun also; we chose a bungalow not knowing for sure what it was, but since it was my husband, 2 1/2 year old and I, we thought it would be a good idea. It was air conditioned,... More

We got off the ship on one of the first tenders to go over and paddle board. I had purchased 2 paddle boards for 2 sessions, this appeared complicated for the workers to understand. The one worker gave us instructions on where we could paddle board, then we get out in the water and another worker comes zooming up on... More

Princess Cays is the Princess Cruise's private beach. Like other private beaches for cruising it has the typical rentals: jet skis, kayaks, clam shells, beach bungalows, and the like. The beach was pretty crowded and the food was from the ship. We had a nice time on the island but it wasn't may favorite.

We have been here 4 other times, most of the time we swim, but we wanted to do something different this year. We decided to do the dune buggy tour offered by Princess. It was a blast! We got to see a lot more of the island with some great tour guides, beautiful spots that you normally don't get to... More

We've spend almost the whole day at Princess Cays and that was quite nice. There are a lot of facilities like bungalows for the family or couple for rent, vast number of sport equipment for beach, water and underwater activities. The beachside itself definitely needs cleaning as there are a lot of stones at the edge of water and floating... More

As you can understand 3000 people descending on one beach it becomes a bit crowded, but it is a nice beach but if I am ever back think o will stay on the ship with plenty of space, food was on the cold side of warm plenty organised for the kids and teens with beach volleyball and such like

This is a decent place for a beach visit if you don't need shade. Since Princess Cruise Line has a private island, its cruises stop here. It's a nice little island, but the line to tender back to the ship was way too long on a hot day. If you get off the ship, go back early and don't wait... More
