Family Beach bottom

it seems the water over at SB is very shallow with a very rocky bottom....not very conducive to swimming....

decisions decisions!!

so if i go with the FB, which cabana should i choose?
i was thinking number 7, but yours seems to be very nicely positioned, so maybe 6?

No rocks at all. The sand was powder. There wasn't much in the way of seaweed either. If you can tell in the photos the water was very clear.

In the cabana area in Family Beach you can go out much much further than the family beach because the family beach is blocked off with ropes in the water to separate it from the slide area.

The Castaway Cay is built in such a way that even far out, it is not deep - even as far out as we were, we could touch the bottom if we stood.

In the afternoon the tide went out and parts of the cabana family beach area didn't have much water infront of them - the water is going further and further out. We didn't experience much difference at #6, but the end of the row of cabanas had a massive beach by the late afternoon.

Sis thought #5 -7 were the best - close to the bathroom, lunch buffet, ice cream and views of the ship. I couldn't come up with a complaint about #6, but I haven't experienced any of the others.
