Get there early to get a seat...it's hot, but it's beautiful. Chair lift is pretty for the view but not needed for the short walk to the beach. Rentals are fun and reasonably priced. Fat Tuesday is fun and waiters will serve you right on the sand.

Although Carnival has build an excellent beach area, with optional $$ ski lift for transport, with many bars and the like it is a typical "cruise ship trap". For example the Salvia Vida, a local brew is $4.75 at their bar and less than $1 in town. The second problem, is just take your time. After you exit the pier... More

If you just want a day to relax on the beach, enjoy the music and sip a drink, this is the place. There is no real snorkeling at this location, but fantastic spots are just beyond the reef.

Perfect san and cool drinks await you on this beach. Within walking distance from cruise ships but the sky lift is worth the few dollars to see the breathtaking views. Gently sloping beaches are great for the kids or the adults that just want to chill. Have a look you won't be disappointed.

Our favorite stop on our cruise! Shopping was good, beach was awesome!! I finally understood what being on "island time" meant while visiting this beach. The sky lift is worth the money, beautiful views, but not a bad walk either. The beach is very calm and inviting. You won't want to go back to the ship!

Beautiful beach with excellent view of Mahogany Bay. Lots of beach chairs and tent cabanas for rent or just throw down your towel. There also is a chair lift that you could ride all day for $12. Not worth it in my opinion, doesn't go that far! We arrived at the beach around 11:00am and it was packed,but thinned out... More

Depends what you like. If you like a crowded beach with rows of sun beds OK but there are far nicer beaches on the island with a little effort. We arranged ourselves a much nicer tour to a great beach at West End instead. There is no local atmosphere here.

Only problem is when the ship is there it is really crowed. While Carnival warns of leaving the "Bay" for security reasons. You will see nothing of the local attractions from that location. We got a tour company from this site and were driven all over the island. Since the folks I had with me were not water people, worked... More
