Beautiful paradise, great water activities. But isolated from the real Bahamian culture.

The good points is the beauty of the particular Island itself, good place to snorkel and see a variety of fish (when you keep close to the rocks). Slow paced environment, easy to... read more

This is one of the most beautiful sites in the Caribbean. The water is calm and inviting. Whether the ship is visiting or not the area is inviting. The natives get to sell their local food and wares to the visitors.

This little gem is definitely worth a visit... been there a few times via a Princess Cruise and the kids have never complained! A few rocks along the water line but worth the effort of crossing them, water is clear, clean and worthy of a post card picture! Will absolutely find myself enjoying this beach again one day soon!

A great island with loads organised by Princess. The beach is clean and lovely. The food provided is great. We love the clamshell sun shades. Blow up water seats are great in the water.

We were driving down to a beautiful beach right on the southern tip of Eleuthera when a monstrosity blotted out the sky line. Curios, we drove towards the blot, to discover Princess Cay. The blot was one of the Princess Cruise Ships, and the Cay was a landing point for the inmates. There is an expression in the Bahamas that... More

The good points is the beauty of the particular Island itself, good place to snorkel and see a variety of fish (when you keep close to the rocks). Slow paced environment, easy to relax, didn't feel crowded. Amazing food, a decent variety of water activities. Cons: It is very touristy in its feel, don't come expecting to experience any real...

Most Princess itineraries throughout the Caribbean offer a stop at this island, as long as the seas aren't too rough. Make sure you take the opportunity to get off the ship, if only for an hour or so. Wait until the initial rush of people have left the boat via the tenders, then head over to the island. A full...

We were not really sure if we would get off the ship to visit the little island ... (which is bigger than it seems.) But after the initial crowd of people left the ship, we decided to go take a look ... We were the only people on the Tender boat to take us to the docks and that was... More

This was a very peaceful and romantic stop for me and the hubby. We rented to clam shells and a couple of adult drinks-- that was all we needed! The beach was not crowded due to this time of year. While eating lunch, we came across two pre-teens who were traveling with their parents and grandparents who thought the cruise... More

2nd time on the island out of 4 Princess Cruises. It's 50 50 since you have to tender to the island. Swells get pretty rough some days. If you can get there, it's best if you can purchase a Clam Shell that comes with 2 beach chairs. Everywhere is a good spot as you are by the beach throughout the... More

There was a couple areas along the beach where you could sit and also get away from the larger groups in the main beach area. It has some nice areas for basic snorkeling. The food and area for drinks was easy to get in and out of and it was a great first stop to kickoff our cruising adventure.
