Disney Cruise Line announced that its new, private island destination Lighthouse Point, located on the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas, will welcome guests in summer 2024.
Lighthouse Point's design is inspired by the rich culture of Eleuthera and The Bahamas, with master artists Kevin Cooper and Antonius Roberts leading a force of local artists to bring the vision to life.
Disney says conservation has been a priority in Lighthouse Point's development, as company representatives have been in regular conversation with locals, vendors, tour operators and more to ensure the company maintains opportunities and experiences for those who live on the islands and in the Bahamas. Disney has also worked with scientists and conservation organizations to preserve the site's health. The pier was designed without the need for dredging, elevated walkways will limit environmental impact and at least 90% of electricity needs will be met by an onsite solar array.
Disney will provide guests with complimentary beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, lunch and tram transportation, much like its Castaway Cay destination.
An expansive family beach, family water play area, market-style dining and recreation will highlight the island's east side. There will also be a Bahamian art and culture pavilion that will feature special programs and local artists.
An adult-exclusive beach, complete with its own dining area and bookable cabanas, will be located north of the family area, while a quieter (but still family-friendly) beach will be located to the southwest.
The island will also see a gaming pavilion, volleyball court, nature trails, watercraft and bicycle rentals and more.
