Everything you need to know before taking a dip in the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool.

Perfect Day at CocoCay, the newly reimagined destination by Royal Caribbean, has made headlines with its record-breaking attractions. But one of the coolest features you can look forward to on this exclusive private island in The Bahamas is Oasis Lagoon. The largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean, it has everything you need to unwind and savor the island vibes, Coco Loco in hand — and admission is totally free. Here’s what you need to know.


Oasis Lagoon at Perfect Day at CocoCay is the ‘largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean’ — and it truly is massive. Encompassing over 33,000 square feet, this larger-than-life hangout encompasses three swim-up islands that are perfect for kicking back and soaking up the sun, and multiple coves that each offer a different kind of vibe — not to mention plenty of in-water seating and tables. Partially-submerged loungers also line the entire perimeter of the pool — prime real estate if you want to work on your tan without having to leave the cool comfort of the water. And if all that’s not enough, you always have the option to upgrade to total privacy and exclusivity in your own cabana, that come with concierge service.

Visiting with kids? No problem. Oasis Lagoon is totally family-friendly. It’s only four-and-a-half feet at the deepest part and there’s a cove with a sloping entry designed just for little swimmers plus lots of space to splash around, and the deepest part of the pool measures just four-and-a-half feet.


Perfect Day at CocoCay doesn’t have a lazy river — it has something better. Oasis Lagoon. Guests will find plenty of secluded areas to relax and disconnect, in addition to ample opportunity to live it up. That’s because Oasis Lagoon is also the perfect spot if you’re looking for a good party with a DJ keeps the beats coming strong all afternoon. The swim-up bar is hands-down one of the best things to do at Oasis Lagoon — it’s where you’ll find most of the action, and with 23 in-water seats, you don’t even need to leave the pool to grab an ice-cold beer or your favorite tropical drink. The crowd that hangs around the swim-up bar is usually a lively bunch that isn’t afraid to make new friends and get down, so don’t be surprised if a dancing contest or conga line breaks out in the water.


Wondering, “Is Oasis Lagoon free?” You bet it is. Access to Oasis Lagoon is completely complimentary for guests visiting Perfect Day at CocoCay, and all the chairs and umbrellas that surround the area are also free for you to use at no additional cost. There’s a complimentary towel station nearby, too, so you don’t have to worry if you forgot to grab a towel on your way off the ship — just make sure you return it before you board again. The only thing you need to pay for at Oasis Lagoon are the cabanas (should you choose to reserve one) and the alcoholic drinks, but if you’ve already purchased a drinking package you can use it anywhere on the island.


One of the great things about Oasis Lagoon is that you don’t need to wander far to grab a bite if you start to work up an appetite. A nearby Snack Shack makes for the perfect pit stop to refuel on beach day favorites before diving back into the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool. Open from 11 a.m. until 45 minutes before boarding time, the Snack Shack serves up complimentary hot dogs, crisp salads, fresh fruit and all kinds of other options to suit different tastes and diets. If you’re a meat lover, don’t miss the signature Shack Burger, made with a special top-secret Shack sauce you won’t find anywhere outside of Perfect Day at CocoCay. Just make sure you save some room for a sweet treat after your meal — the Snack Shack offers some of the best homemade cookies and brownies on the island.
