Aboard the Dream: Heads Up Bar

When you’re on Castaway Cay, it’s easy to stick to the well-trodden paths: To have lunch at Cookie’s, to slide down Pelican Plunge or to meet Mickey outside of the post office. But there are a few less-visited spots on the island …

One of those spots is Pelican Point, at the far flung tip of the Family Beach. It has crazy great views of the ships in dock and is also home to the great (but sparsely populated) Heads Up Bar.

As far as Castaway Cay goes, a bar is a bar is a bar. They all serve the same drinks and have the same prices. I personally can’t drink enough Konk Koolers. What makes this particular spot fun is the fishing village-inspired decor.

Like I said, it was sparsely populated out on the point when we visited, and that was definitely part of the appeal–we could enjoy the relative peace of Serenity Bay without making the trek out to the other side of the island. But even if there had been lots of guests swarming the bar, there was plenty of seating: Probably a dozen seats at the bar and another dozen or so around the deck.

And there’s that great view I was telling you about. Unsurpassed.

Definitely a cool spot to get out of the heat for a bit and fill up on a refreshing cocktail before heading back to the ship.
