A pleasant and clean tropical beach within easy walking from downtown Nassau

There are small shacks serving drinks and snacks during the day. At night it seems to be a favorite haunt of Bahamians coming to cool off. It provides a pleasant walk to the Fish... read more

Junkanoo beach is an easy walk away for the cruise ship people out there! Just get to Bay Street, make a left and keep on walking - past the Hilton - (on your right and the McDs on your left)....the road will bend to your right and keep on keeping on. The beach is gorgeous! Lots to do - beach... More

This is a convenient walk from downtown which is why it gets overcrowded with ship passengers. I'd prefer to take a bus out to Cable Beach.

Junkanoo Beach is a short walk from the cruise port but is not that easy to navigate with a wheel chair. Few Bahamian streets have cuts in the curbs, and all have very high curbs so someone must either be carried down the curbs or must be able to stand and walk for that part of the journey. The beach...

Pros: near the port, has restrooms and bar with food near by. Cons: mixed drinks at bar not that good, some trash on beach, and restrooms not really clean. I would return if only it was my and my wife with very little time at port. Would not want to bring my kids here as I would be too worried... More

Good place for a walk during the daytime. There are several mini hits serving different local speciality drinks. Local music played here aswell. Relaxed atmosphere. If you keep walking along this beach you get to the local restaurants. 10 minute walk.

We were off the cruise ship for a day and didn't want to spend tons of money at Atlantis. So we decided to hike over to Junaknoo. It's a fine beach, water is water... but the sand leaves a little to be desired. There's cigarette butts, pieces of glass, food containers, and general litter. It's not a pristine stretch of...

One of the free beaches in Nassau, it's clean and quiet. I did a bus tour and this was one of the stops. I wish I had more time to spend there.

This beach is conveniently located within twenty minutes walk of the cruise terminal. However, it is small, overlooks what appears to be a refinery, and pretty much lacks any charm. Certainly not a spot worth waiting for.

My son and I walked from the cruise ship. It was an easy walk for my 5 year old. It took about 15 minutes. My son loved the beach. Clear water.
