Cococay

Breath-taking views

A cruise to the Caribbean is perfect for learning about the Berry Islands. Situated about fifty miles north of Nassau, they are host to such an abundance of marine life that they have been nicknamed the aquarium of the Bahamas. Among the 30 cays and small submerged islands of the archipelago, between which you will navigate in your MSC cruise ship, there is a private island called Little Stirrup Cay, also called Coco Cay, one of the favourite destinations of those who choose to navigate through these waters.

The island is about 1 kilometre long and less than 200 meters wide. As you will see from your cruise ship, there is nothing blocking your view. In other words, the island is not much higher than a palm tree! Visitors can disembark for a day-long excursion (at night, the island is uninhabited) using a tender service that connects ships anchored in deeper waters with the eastern point of the island, the centre of its recreational activities.

The beaches on this part of the island face a reef basin, where manta rays, skates and many other fascinating fish often swim and can be observed by snorkelers without the need for actual submersion, which are however possible and recommended to enthusiasts. Here, you can participate in a wide range of activities designed for every type of cruise goer on holiday in the Caribbean: from hikes through the thickest vegetation following trails running along and across the island; to aquatic adventures in the special marine park, where a section is reserved to “young” explorers with age-appropriate tasks. Then, outings in a kayak, parasailing, races on a water scooter... or, as an alternative, you can lay out in the sun, perhaps sipping on a typical Coco Cay cocktail.

    Glazba i otoci
    Glazba i otoci

    Kada na vašem krstarenju dođete na Bahame - sedam stotina otoka razbacanih na više od 3.800 četvornih kilometara kristalno bistrog tropskog mora na sjevernom dijelu Kariba - otkrit ćete plaže i zanimljivu unutrašnjost koja zove na istraživanje, kao i puno sportova.


    Za one koji odaberu plažu i koji putuju s djecom, plaža Taino, smještena u području Lucaya, je idealno mjesto s malim igralištem za djecu. Ako tražite jednu od najizoliranijih plaža u čitavom arhipelagu, izlet koji ne smijete propustiti je onaj na otok Plava laguna: predivna, kristalno bistra, tirkizna voda i skrivena laguna.

     

    Odmor na Bahamima nije pravi odmor bez izleta tijekom kojih ćete obići povijesne tvrđave i spomenike Nassaua: tvrđavu Montague, najstariju na otoku New Providence; tvrđavu Charlotte čiji su topovi uvijek ispaljivali samo manevarske kugle; tvrđavu Fincastle čiji oblik podsjeća na parobrod. Glazba je druga velika strast stanovnika Bahama: ona je podloga za život u ovom karipskom arhipelagu.

     

    Često se izvodi uživo, u restoranima, kockarnicama pa čak i barovima na plaži. Od najtradicionalnijih bendova s limenim bubnjevima do rake'n'scrape glazbe slične reggaeu koja se izvodi na neobičnom instrumentu - na pili, zatim calypso, soca i jukanoo.
