Free beach but nothing is free!

You walk up and are bombarded with someone wanting to get your money. $5 for a chair, $5 for an umbrella, several ladies selling handmade jewelry. Even the restroom has a woman... read more

Loved the bartender Marshall who made great drinks and had a fun way about him. He was great!!!! made great frozen... More

Went to the Tiki bikini bar in April 2015. They rent chairs and umbrellas and sold drinks and food. You could negotiate a package deal. The drinks are watered down (but were great anyway) which we figured because they included about 6 drinks with the chairs and umbrellas we rented. Would still recommend them. The beach is beautiful and in... More

You walk up and are bombarded with someone wanting to get your money. $5 for a chair, $5 for an umbrella, several ladies selling handmade jewelry. Even the restroom has a woman standing at it asking for money. I was waiting for them to ask for money for me to put my feet in the water.

We recently stopped on a cruise and walked to Junkanoo beach. The positives are that its within walking distance of the cruise port and the water is very pretty. The negatives are it's extremely crowded and the sand is not very soft and does have some glass and bottle caps strewn about. But this is what you get on such... More

After shopping you walk to the beach. Nice bar to take a dring and have some fun. I would like to rent jetski on the beach, but that day, not available.

We stopped at Junkanoo Beach for a drink at Marshall's. The beach was relatively uncrowded and a great way to break up the walk down to the Fish Fry from the cruise terminal. Water is 2-3 colors of blue! Marshall was a great host and his Rum Punch won't disappoint. Great way to spend the afternoon in port and experience... More

There were four cruise ships in port the day we were there so the town was very crowded. The tourist info folks gave us a map & directed us toward the beach. We walked 15 min. by numerous duty free shops, the straw market, the British Colonial Hilton then to the beach right beside Fat Tuesdays. Many ship patrons were... More

We weren't sure what to expect with the previous reviews about all the glass on the beach. We thought we would give it a short since it's so close to the cruise ships. We were pleasantly surprised. We saw some glass right at the beginning of the beach next the Fat Tuesday but about 50 feet or so onto the... More
