Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve

Ocean Cay, a Unique Island

A cruise to the Caribbean on an MSC cruise ship will take you to the most beautiful beaches in the world. 

Located in the same part of the Atlantic that washes the beaches of Florida’s Malibu and Miami, the Bimini are a group of islands belonging to the Bahamas.

MSC Cruises has helped this country set up an environmental paradise and an exclusive spot for vacationing in harmony with nature on one of its more remote locations: Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve

You will see over ten splendid beaches, a vast, calm lagoon, the harmonious lines of the typical houses of a Bahamian village and much more. The crown jewel of Ocean Cay are the aquatic sport activities, suitable for adults and children. 

In addition, a part of the island is dedicated to families. Located a short distance from where the ships are docked, the area is fully equipped. The more romantic cruise goers, on the other hand, will be able to visualize their wedding on the northern beach or simply take a stroll at sunset. 

MSC Cruises excursions include an underwater exploration of the MSC Marine Reserve with its astounding tropical underwater life. During your Caribbean cruise, you will also be able to independently snorkel and swim in the waters of Ocean Cay. 

The attractions of this unique island also include its seaside restaurants and tiki bars. A second island, linked to the main island, hosts the Ocean Cay Yacht Club and Spa, where you will be able to relax under the expert hands of masseurs in rooms shielded by dense vegetation.

As you arrive on your cruise to the Bahamas – seven hundred islands scattered over 3800 sq.km. of crystal clear tropical seas in the northern part of the Caribbean – you will discover beaches and interesting hikes in the hinterland, still partly to be explored, as well as lots of sports.

For those who choose the beach and are travelling with children, Taino Beach, in the area of Lucaya, is the ideal location with its small playground. If you are looking for one of the most isolated beaches in the entire archipelago, an excursion you should not miss is to Blue Lagoon Island: beautiful, crystal clear, turquoise waters and a hidden lagoon.

A vacation in the Bahamas isn’t a true vacation without an excursion to the historical forts and monuments of Nassau: Fort Montague, the oldest on the island of New Providence; Fort Charlotte, whose cannons have always only fired blanks; Fort Fincastle, which due to its shape resembles a steamship. Music is the other great passion of the inhabitants of the Bahamas: it is the sound track of the life on this Caribbean archipelago.

Often played live, in restaurants, casinos and even in beach bars. From the most traditional steel drum bands, to rake ’n’ scrape, a music similar to reggae, played with an unusual instrument, a saw; and then calypso, soca and junkanoo.
