Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve is a piece of paradise in the Bahamas. Aside from crystal blue water beaches, the island offers a variety of dining options. There are plenty of places to eat, drink and be merry. Food shacks and beverages are available throughout the island, a walk-up bar in the Ocean Cay Village, Coffee and Ice Cream parlors, and a Hemingway-style bar at the Lighthouse.
Let’s see together all the options for eating and drinking on the island:

Springer Bar is a walk-up bar in the Ocean cay Village. This bar has signature cocktails, cold beer, water, and sodas. A comfortable place to sit and chat while watching the crowd of passing tourists.
Lighthouse Bar is a Hemingway-style bar and terrace just below the Lighthouse, and this place is one of the favorite spots on the island. From here, you can greet the beautiful sunsets, enjoy the light show while sipping a fancy cocktail, and gnaw on delicious Caribbean food, snacks, and dessert. The menu includes snacks and desserts such as a Shrimp cocktail, Caribbean Crab Cake, Chicken wings, spicy Beef Patties, and Jerk Sweet Potato Samosa. Snacks such as plantain chips, spice potato chips, flavored Potato chips, Rum cake, and Spiced chocolate cake, all at extra charge.
The great news is that the drink packages are valid on the island; you can also pay for everything with your ship card.
At last, for sure, you won’t remain hungry on the island, but if nothing is inspiring you, the ship is just 5 minutes away, and you can enjoy the ship’s food and the buffet or in one of the restaurants while on the Ocean Cay MSC Cruises private island.
Have a beautiful day at Ocean Cay 😊
