The entire left side of the island is made for relaxing, so keeping it chill is easy—and accessible. Wheelchairs designed to work in the sand are available, and most beaches have a sloped entrance to make enjoying the water even easier.
South Beach: Along the side of the private island is South Beach, where you can explore along the shore or go paddleboarding and kayaking. A tram is also available every 15 minutes to take you from Thrill Waterpark to South Beach. There’s a bonus, too: The Sports Courts & Restaurants, including the South Beach Bar, are set to open December 2019.
Coco Beach Club℠ (coming soon): Say hello to the first overwater cabanas in The Bahamas, only at the exclusive Coco Beach Club. When they open in December, you’ll find the perfect way to elevate any beach day with up to eight of your closest friends and family and perfect views. There’s even an oceanfront infinity pool with slides and a private restaurant with Mediterranean fare.
Perfect Day at CocoCay pro tip: Cabanas for up to six guests are already available across the island in different areas. And if you reserve one in Thrill Waterpark, you’ll get passes to the waterpark, too.
Oasis Lagoon℠: A family-friendly sloping entry, a swim-up bar, underwater music, coves and islands for lounging … These are just a few of the perks at the largest freshwater swimming pool in the Caribbean. Here’s another bonus: The bottom of the pool is padded for added comfort.
Chill Island℠: This island comes with the necessities to chill—soft white sand, hammocks, lounge chairs, umbrellas and even a tropical hut where you can swim up and grab a cocktail. “Chill Island is capped to ensure there are no lines,” says Hessler. “It seemed so empty that I felt like I had my own beach to enjoy.”
Harbor Beach: Surrounding Harbor Lagoon, this is where you can sit back, relax and enjoy the sounds of the waterfall and fountain on this sandy beach.
If all that chilling leaves you hungry, check out the Snack Shack between Oasis Lagoon and Chill Island for complimentary burgers, hot dogs and salads. Chill Grill is also close by with beachside barbecue, fresh salads and more—all complimentary, too.
