Great Beach!

We arrived early in the morning and walked straight over to the beach!! Its a short walk down the beach to Jack's Shack. We quickly got two chairs and an umbrella for $10.00. The water was perfect. It's a great place to get photos of the ship behind you while you are swimming. Soon Topher... read more

We return again and again to Jack's. Friendly people and excellent food. Nice clean facility on the beach within walking distance from the cruise ship dock.

Port day for our summer cruise. Took the 10 min walk down the beach, past the touristy / Carnival stuff and found Jack's Shack. $10 for an umbrella. Chairs are free. Beer is cold and cheap. Jerk Chicken is hot and flavorful. The best part are the beach dogs. They have two that are such a blast to play with.... More

Everyone is welcome at Jack's Shack, even the dogs ! Henry, the Chef makes the very best cracked conch & conch fritters I have ever tasted, bar none. All of the staff are friendly and so helpful, I saw one staff member go way down the beach to assist an older lady because she was fatigued by the 100 yard... More

Worth the short walk away from the tourist traps. Great atmosphere and food. Jerk Chicken was one of the best I have had. Reasonable prices and friendly people. The crew from our cruise told us about it and we were glad they did.

The 3rd time I have been to Jack's Shack. I look forward to it every time we cruise. Best excursion going on. Get off the boat, go through Duffy's turned left past Margaritaville and keep walking toward the other pier. When you see Oasis Dive boats look to your right through the volleyball net and you will see some people... More

My husband and I visited Jack's Shack on July 8, 2015. We did not realize it would be the walk from the cruise terminal that it was, however, the experience was well worth the time. We were welcomed by Jack and his staff took excellent care of us. The jerk chicken was DELICIOUS as were the conch fritters. Our group... More

Jack's provides a quaint, fun, exciting and energetic atmosphere to sun drenched day at the beach. The food is very nicely done and the adult drinks are plentiful. The selection of local beer and cocktails will please the desires of all travelers. The prices are great and you will be saving plenty of money by passing by the tourist trap.... More
