Disney’s newest coastal gem, Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point on the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas, is the latest private paradise for Disney Cruise Line guests. Scoring a spot on the itinerary alongside the beloved Castaway Cay, this fresh location is set to enchant with a focus on the region’s natural beauty, arts, and culture.

Inspired by Disney’s devotion to storytelling, Imagineers embarked on this project with a metaphorical “blank sheet of paper.” While modern-day plans unfold on screens, the essence remains—starting with endless possibilities. However, every new creation stands on the legacy of what came before. For Lighthouse Point, this meant weaving new magic around the area’s inherent charm rather than replacing it.

In a harmonious nod to Bahamian arts and culture, Disney collaborated with local artists and cultural groups, ensuring that Lookout Cay is as much a tribute to the local heritage as it is a luxurious retreat. The result? Beautifully crafted buildings, vibrant art installations, and immersive entertainment that visitors will cherish.

Nature enthusiasts are in for a treat with the carefully curated Nature Trail. Whether on foot or by bike, guests can explore preserved sections of this stunning locale, complete with picturesque limestone cliffs and the historic lighthouse that watches over the sea. For more relaxation, the Mabrika Cove Cabanas offer a tranquil retreat within this captivating environment.

Earlier this month, I took a preview voyage to Lookout Cay. Disney has developed less than 16% of the area, leaving the bulk of the pristine landscape untouched. Positioned thoughtfully away from the iconic cliff and lighthouse, the development ensures that this serene beauty remains for years.

However, whether this treasure will be equally accessible to Bahamians as to international visitors remains a question. The natural splendor of Lighthouse Point is truly something to behold, and Disney’s efforts have amplified its allure. Here’s hoping Disney will extend the privilege of experiencing this paradise to both tourists and locals alike.
