The Concert Courtyard

All the music at Castaway with Southern Ground takes place right at the resort, just steps from your room and backing up to the Caribbean Sea! The Concert Courtyard is an intimate yet spacious outdoor setting which not only offers plenty of dancing space, but also has outstanding audio acoustics. During the shows there will be multiple bars and grab n' go food stations set up with bartenders roaming the courtyard. In addition, there will also be a sunset lagoon show and late-night parties after the main stage closes down.
