Steps away from Serenity Bay BBQ and the area’s beach bar, these cabanas will be available for rent to offer a retreat for adults to take in Eleuthera’s stunning sand dunes and shimmering ocean waves.

The bright turquoise ocean here in Eleuthera is beautiful, yes, but don’t forget to look up while you’re exploring Disney Lookout Cay. Art from talented, local Bahamian artists will take shape throughout all of the spaces at the destination, including intricate wood carvings inspired by artist Andret John and colorful murals by painter Dorman Stubbs, as seen here.

True-True Too BBQ

True-True Too BBQ is a beautiful example of the architecture designed to look like oversized seashells scattered across the shores of Disney Lookout Cay. These uniquely designed dining pavilions will offer shade from your day of adventures on the Nature Trail or the beach, serving up views of Bahamian art, nature, and of course, delicious lunch!

From these beautiful decks under the shade of a shell-inspired pavilion, you’ll enjoy some tasty lunch from True-True Too BBQ while taking in the beautiful views of the ocean and sand dunes.

Can you spot some nature-inspired art under the pavilion? That is just a peek of the art that will fill these beautiful spaces, all drawn from the coral, seashells, fish and flowers that inform the architecture and also inspire Eleuthera’s local artists.

Celebrating and Preserving Bahamian Culture
Junior Junkanoo at Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point

When you visit Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point, you’ll be immersed in elements of Bahamian culture. This special new island destination is inspired by Junkanoo, a longstanding Bahamian tradition celebrating the unique culture of this beautiful country.

Last week, I had the honor of traveling to Eleuthera for the island’s Junior Junkanoo competition, where Bahamian students across the island create costumes and parade banners from crepe paper and cardboard and compete alongside other schools in vibrant, energetic performances. From the bright colors and dancing to traditional Junkanoo sounds of goat skin drums and cowbells, it was an incredible experience to see the excitement and creativity from the students as they celebrated their culture and how the community came together to support this tradition.

Here’s a glimpse of the magic of Junior Junkanoo.

Disney has supported Junior Junkanoo since coming to Eleuthera to help preserve the Junkanoo tradition for generations to come. This year, Disney increased our support of Junior Junkanoo, and I experienced first-hand how much of an impact that made on this program and community.

In addition to providing funding, we showed the students that the talents and skills they used to create costumes and parade banners could lead to incredible creative, entertainment and design careers. We hosted a virtual workshop to bring students together with Disney creatives and Bahamian fashion designer, Theodore Elyett, who we recently shared designed the new Bahamian-inspired outfits for Mickey and Minnie Mouse to wear at Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point when it opens this summer. During the workshop, students met with the team, exchanged creative design ideas as they finalized their Junkanoo costumes and learned about careers in the creative and entertainment industries.

Both as a Bahamian and Disney Cruise Line cast member, I’m excited for our guests from around the world to visit Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point to explore Eleuthera and join us in celebrating the rich Bahamian culture that makes our country unique.
