A Bright, Breezy and Brisk Bike Ride on Disney’s Castaway Cay By Sarah McClure
Castaway Cay is Disney’s private island in the Bahamas and will prove to be a highlight of your Bahamian or Caribbean sailing. There are currently 23 port adventures available, ranging from tube and snorkel rentals to the amazing Sting Ray Encounter and Parasailing Adventure. Castaway Cay offers families a wonderful island beach day, and what better way to explore an island than on two wheels?!
Bikes can be rented on a first-come, first-serve basis upon arrival at Castaway Cay or guests can reserve them ahead of time through the Port Adventures page online or on board the ship. Bicycle rentals can be booked individually for about $11, or as part of the Castaway Cay Getaway Package or Extreme Getaway Package.
The best part of this adventure is the fact that most family members can participate. The terrain is paved and flat, and the trails course through about a mile and a half of the island’s beautiful landscape.
You will find the Bike Rental station just past the Family Beach. There are many bike styles available for children, women and men.
As you are cruising along, be sure to notice all of the interesting “artifacts” that have been scattered about. You may find washed up buoys and anchors or even a plane that has crash-landed.
About halfway through your ride, you will see a turn off that follows a loop to the look out tower.
This is a great time to take a break, and climb to the top for breathtaking 360° views of the island, your ship and beyond as far as the eye can see.
There are water stations located throughout the trail.
As you continue along the way, the path becomes a bit more shaded and you will see the brightly painted private cabanas. You will notice that it is very quiet as you come up to Serenity Bay, the adults only beach.
Heading back to the Family Beach area, you will get to ride along the old air strip that has a colorful history dating back to the 1930s. This is a great time to have a race and try your best bicycle tricks.
