CocoCay, Bahamas

Little Stirrup Cay, Bahamas, is one of the Berry Islands, a collection of cays and small islands and is located approximately 55 miles north of Nassau. It is used for tourism by 

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd

 in an exclusive way.

The island is less than a mile (around one kilometer) wide from east to west and less than 200 yards (183 meters) from north to south. The east end is the center of recreational activities with beaches fronting a coral basin where manatee, rays, and numerous fish can be seen. There is a rocky inlet on the north side of the island large enough for the cruise ship tenders to operate from. Nature trails run the entire length and width of the island.
