What is Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point?
Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point is a new island destination owned and operated by Disney Cruise Line, located at the southernmost tip of Eleuthera in The Bahamas. This tropical port-of-call will showcase Bahamian culture and nature with designs inspired by the island’s organic shapes and vibrant colors.
You’ve likely heard several different names used for this project; to better understand the lay of the land, here’s how things shape up:
- The Bahamas is a country made up of a group of islands
- Eleuthera is one of the islands in The Bahamas
- Lighthouse Point is an area at the southernmost tip of Eleuthera
- Lookout Cay is Disney’s new private port in this area
Similar to Disney’s Castaway Cay, there will be an abundance of opportunities for guests of all ages to enjoy fun in the sun. But unlike Castaway Cay — which is a separate island owned solely by Disney — Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point is a private port which relies in part on the vibrant culture and natural beauty of the well-established island where it is located, Eleuthera.
Beginning in June 2024, Disney will launch two inaugural cruises to Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point, followed by a selection of cruises ranging from three to ten nights during the summer. As an exclusive port of call for Disney Cruise Line passengers, Lookout Cay’s close proximity to Florida’s Port Canaveral, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami will make it a sought-after addition to Bahamian and Caribbean itineraries.
At Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point, families can bond over beach activities, water play zones, and gaming pavilions. There are dedicated areas for children, including a kids club, dining room, and splash pool, while adults can enjoy a secluded beach, private cabanas, and bars exclusively for adults.
Guests can explore the island’s Arts and Cultural Pavilion to appreciate Bahamian traditions and natural beauty, as well as embark on Eleuthera excursions developed with local tour operators.
Disney Cruise Line is dedicated to protecting The Bahamas’ environment at Lighthouse Point, investing millions in conservation projects and partnering with local organizations and scientists. They also aim to create sustainable economic opportunities for Bahamians by generating jobs and supporting artists, small businesses, and entrepreneurs.
