Scheduled to open in January 2024, coinciding with the highly anticipated launch of the cruise ship Icon of the Seas, Hideaway Beach will be the premier beachfront escape on the island.

After numerous months of anticipation from Royal Caribbean fans eager to learn more about this adult-only retreat, the cruise line has finally provided us with a sneak peek of what it will look like.

Complete with pools, swim up bars, cabanas, and seclusion to merit the name of the beach area,  Hideaway Beach will be free of children but full of amenities.

“Hideaway Beach is a completely new vibe and experience that vacationers are looking for on Perfect Day at CocoCay. Everything from its hidden-like location to the exclusive beach and pools to the private cabanas is designed for adults who want a day just for them,” stated Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.

“There are experiences for everyone on a Royal Caribbean vacation, and that’s at the heart of our private island and its popularity. Whether it’s thrill or chill, family time or time to celebrate, families and friends can create their ‘perfect’ vacation day without compromise, and Hideaway Beach adds to what continues to be an unmatched combination of ways to do just that.”

How much will it cost?
Access to this adult-only beach will carry an entry fee of $39 to $89 depending on seasonality and demand.   So, depending on the time of year the price will fluctuate.

The beach will be located on the northwest side of the private island and will feature a private beach, two pools, 20 cabanas, and plenty of places for a drink or bite to eat.
