SHIPS DEPARTING FROM THE U.S.
DISCOVER Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve
Featured on all Caribbean and The Bahamas cruises departing from the United States, Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, is our award-winning exclusive private island in The Bahamas. With more than two miles of white-sand beaches and pristine turquoise waters brimming with colorful marine life, the island is a perfect retreat. Long stays and even overnights provide plenty of time to relax on the beach with a drink in hand, explore the island and its iconic lighthouse, take part in a water sports excursion, or indulge in a beachside massage.
Ocean Cay offers multiple beaches to choose from:
North and South Beach: Located on each side of the lagoon providing calm waters for swimming or relaxing on a beach float.
Bimini Beach: Rent one of our private cabanas and enjoy endless views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Sunset Beach: Stunning views (hence the name) & one of the largest beaches on the island (over half a mile long of white sand).
Lighthouse Bay: Closest beach to the ship offering plenty of chairs, umbrellas and sun beds.
Paradise Sands Beach: The Spa at Ocean Cay is located here, allowing guests to enjoy a beachside massage.
Ocean House Beach: Exclusive only for MSC Yacht Club guests where you can enjoy an upscale experience & complimentary amenities.
It's not every day you get to enjoy a full day, or two, on a private island and we're here to help you make the most of your time on Ocean Cay.
Daytime activities & excursions:
Spend time in the lagoon or ocean snorkeling with beautiful fish and coral or relax on a floating mat.
For those seeking a more thrilling experience, take a journey through the Bahamian waters on a jet ski tour or our Rum Rendezvous catamaran cruise.
Evening activities & excursions:
Unique to MSC Cruises, experience glow paddle boarding in our lagoon and watch as the lights attract small tropical fish all around you or take in the beautiful night sky with beachside stargazing or a sunset picnic.
