Note: This is the 4th in series about Castaway Cay
Today's post about Castaway Cay is about the beaches! The beaches are just gorgeous and a great place to spend at least a portion of your day at Castaway Cay.
There are two main areas to the Family Beach. You can take a tram to either of these areas if you don't want to walk. If you have little ones the walk can be a bit long. There are tons of chairs - lounge chairs and short chairs for guests. There should be enough chairs for everyone! There are also umbrellas and hammocks. The chairs closest to the water and the ones closest to the play areas tend to fill up fast. If you have someone who can go out early and reserve your spots it's not a bad idea.
There are lifeguards at various stations along the beach. There are also a couple fun play areas on the family beach. The newest one, Pelican's Plunge is a waterslide in the ocean! It's very fun! There is also another "floating play area" on the other part of the family beach. There are lots of places to swim and play in the ocean and an area for snorkeling.
If you'd like a little time without children around head over to Serenity Bay, the adult only area of the island. Just as the name implies Serenity Bay is a very peaceful area of the beach. And no children around make it very serene.
If you want to enjoy your beach day in luxury Disney has private Cabana's to rent. There are cabanas on both the family beach and Serenity Bay. The cabana area on the family beach has it's own beach area. There is seating inside and outside of the cabana and you have your own cabana host to attend to your needs. There is a fridge stocked with soda and water. The cabanas come with a pretty steep price tag but might be well worth it if you want to hang out in style on the beach!
