Pineapples on Eleuthera at Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point

Lighthouse Point is a locally beloved stretch of coastline and rock structures on the southernmost point of Eleuthera, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the clear, turquoise waters of The Bahamas. Disney Cruise Line chose this treasured destination to connect guests from around the world with the vibrant culture of The Bahamas. With pink sand beaches (found all over Eleuthera’s shores), guests will find them the perfect place to relax and snap a few photos, no filter needed. The pink color comes from crushed coral and fragments of shells that mix with the island’s soft, white sand. One of the best places in Eleuthera to see pink sand beaches? Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point!

All over Disney Lookout Cay, guests will find hints of an important part of Eleuthera’s history: the pineapple. Eleuthera is known for its long history of pineapple farming, being one of only a few in all of The Bahamas with distinct red soil. Pineapple farming is an important part of Eleuthera’s history. The island hosts the world-famous Pineapple Festival annually, bringing visitors and communities together to celebrate the harvest season.

Ocean Hole at Rock Sound

Over at Rock Sound, Eleuthera, guests will find the Ocean Hole, a naturally forming blue hole Bahamians believe connects to the ocean through 300,000-year-old caves. Many Rock Sound residents learned how to swim in this beautiful hole with a higher salt content, making it more buoyant than seawater. Some locals say this beautiful space also has incredible, natural healing properties! Ocean Hole and Lighthouse Point Beach share amazing limestone rock structures, another part of the extraordinary terrain on this beautiful island.

Blue Hole is available as one of many opportunities to explore the beauty of Eleuthera in Disney Lookout Cay’s local Eco Tour port adventures.

Real-Life Cave of Wonders

Not far from Ocean Hole, a natural rock structure called Cathedral Cave has soaring, wide ceilings, cascading tree roots, and glittering filtered sunlight. This popular tourist attraction is home to native Bahamian wildlife.

Guests will learn about Bahamian wildlife like this on the beautiful nature trail at Disney Lookout Cay, where they’ll find bronze sculptures of native animals. Plus, Cathedral Cave is also available to visit during Disney Lookout Cay’s port adventures, including the South Eleuthera Eco and Cultural Tour and the South Eleuthera Eco and Historical Tour.

One of the most recognizable landmarks in all of The Bahamas is on Eleuthera: the Glass Window Bridge. This once-natural bridge of land separates the Atlantic Ocean from the stunning, peaceful waters of the Exuma Sound and the 700 islands of the archipelago of The Bahamas. Eleutheran artist Kevin Cooper painted this famous natural wonder, and guests can find his artwork hung in the cabanas. It is available for purchase as a lithograph to take home as a souvenir from Disney Lookout Cay.

Eleuthera is an unforgettable destination and the perfect place for Disney Cruise Line’s newest retreat that celebrates the beauty and culture of The Bahamas. We feel guests will love it just as much as we do!
