Princess Cays or Half Moon Cay for elderly couple

Recommended Posts

My parents are 68-75 years old.  They can't walk much, maybe half a quarter or half a mile max at a time.  


I want them to enjoy beautiful beach.  Perhaps do a little swimming (for dad).  Mom will probably not swim.  


1) Would you choose princess cay or half moon cay? 

2) What activities are available for their age group?  I don't think they would enjoy the bar or loud music.  Perhaps local food and nice scenery. 


Thank you all. :)

I'm 64 and my wife is 72.

We  have been to both islands on more than a few occasions.

We always try to get a clam shell, so we can have some shade.


That said, my wife does have trouble walking in the sand at times and the clam shells on HMC are spread out in the back, behind the beach loungers, in a long line, and are first come first serve.

If you don't get there early, you will do some walking to get to a clam shell.


On Princess Cay, they are in a separate area, also first come, but all together, so the walk is not long.


I would choose Princess Cay for the above reason, and also it just seems a little mellower and laid back.

I also like the food layout more on PC.


Both are beautiful, but I think PC is geared towards an older demo.

If you parents were not going I'd say HMC.


Either way they will enjoy themselves.
