We were short on time at our cruise stop and the Jitney was running very slow, so we just walked the half hour to Junkanoo beach instead of our intended destination of Cable Beach. This is a decent beach but was pretty crowded and fairly small. It also was basically just a view of the bay and cruise ships. There... More

The walk to Junkanoo is at least 2 miles. The beach is free. I did not stay long enough to find out if the chairs are free. The sand is a bit dirty and the day I was here the sky was overcast and breezy. The water was not clear and not very warm as far as beaches go. There... More

this was a small but clean beach within walking distance to our cruise ship, and even though it was a bit rainy, we enjoyed the clear blue water and white sand beach. the Bikini Tiki Bar was a great spot for a nice cold beer to alleviate the heat.

Beautiful beach! I didn't see any glass only shells and rocks. The water is clear and inviting. I enjoyed mingling with the locals during Junkanoo Bahamas Carnival! I will definitely go back. The conch fritters at Welcome By Gloria were tasty; however, she had a long line and it took a while go get our food.

We were on the carnival Fascination & we decided to go here for the day! So glad we did! It was a short walk & the beach was beautiful. Make sure you go to the brown Tiki hut and see Byron. We got 4 beers 4 shots & kids got free Virginia daiquiris all day long for only $10!!

We went to Junkanoo Beach with our stop on Royal Caribbean. If you have already done Atlantis, and don't want to spend the $ on an overpriced beach, this is the way to go. It is about a 10 minute walk from the port. Bypass the first entrance (Fat Tuesdays), as they try to steer you into their establishment to... More

There is food and beverages for sale and they even have adult beverages too!All in all it is a verry nice beach.

We had 4 great hours on Junkanoo Beach as our first port Nassau on Oasis of the Seas, 5.4.15. It is a free clean beach, nice stroll from the cruise port (can see the boats from the beach which is reassuring), no need for taxis, time to browse the local shops along the way. Had 5 kids on board, ,... More
