This was a beautiful beach to spend the afternoon at. Plenty of chair and umbrella rentals available in the area and small restaurants like the Tiki Bikini Hut that are perfect for food and drink. The only downside I saw was the fact that there was broken glass throughout the beach so you had to watch where you stepped.

We walked to Junkanoo Beach and had a nice day in the sun. There were lots of cute shacks for drinks and a bite to eat. Nice to go to the islands and not have to spend a fortune to take a taxi or pay for an excursion. Can stop on the way and get a couple of Bahamian beers... More

We stopped here while walking around. It was Sunday, and a lot of the locals were there. They deserve to relax too. It was great.

Junkanoo beach is great fun. The beach is sandy and the water pretty. There is live music playing; brightly colored food & drink shacks offering local cuisine; non-motor sport water rentals; a nice little massage booth; and various other activities available. This beach is walking distance from downtown so that makes it a good choice for time off the cruise... More

Not the nicest beach however the most fun - lots of local color/characters. A very easy walk from the boats and well located.

The beach is a very picturesque area with beautiful blue waters and a quaint light house across the way. Atlantis is a bit expensive and a trip to the straw market and a day at Junkanoo is an excellent alternative. I have three little boys and they love to play on this beach. Mommy and I love to sip Pina... More

We wanted a place within walking distance of our cruise ship. This was about a mile away. Lots of locals playing music and selling cheap drinks and "renting" chairs. They were working hard for a living and very friendly. We had a great time here. The Sands brand local beer was pretty good...especially at 5 for $10.

A nice and unexpected surprise when visiting Nassau. The Beach itself is not spectacular, man made with a view mostly of the harbor and cruise ship docks, but the water is clean, the atmosphere relaxed despite a usually large crowd of tourists from the nearby Cruise ships.... and best of all, the drinks are very reasonable priced....The Tiki Bikini Bar...

My husband and I were here on a cruise and migrated to this beach after a parasailing excursion. The beach was a little run-down and crowded with hundreds of college and high school aged kids partying for Spring Break. The scenery was beautiful and the water was perfect but not really our cup of tea as far as crowds go.... More

Like most of others we came on the cruise and walked to the beach. It was a little rocky but not a bother. We laid in the sand and enjoyed the warm sun and cool ocean water.
