My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this first stop on our Princess Cruises "Caribbean Princess" trip through the Bahamas (Eleuthera), Curacao and Aruba. This privately owned (Princess) beach area is perfect for experiencing the true Caribbean flavor of warm gentle breezes, beautiful beaches, relaxing beach chairs, locally-managed stores and delicious food and drink. We would highly recommend that you rent a locker (found at 2 locations, one very close to the tender drop-off point) for $5/day so you don't have to carry everything with you. Once your hands are free, head to the security gate (just beyond the lockers - ask for assistance or look for the "Crafts" sign) and go outside the privately-owned area where you'll find local artisans and their booths filled with colorful regional craft items - we found some delightful souvenirs there that we never saw at other places. Be sure to take a photo ID with you in order to get back in through security. After we returned and retrieved our belongings from our locker, we headed up the longer part of the privately-owned section and entered the water near the red-roofed gazebo with our snorkeling gear. Once in the water, follow the rocks around to the right and past the gazebo for beautiful sunlit corals and tropical fish. This is what good snorkeling is all about! Very enjoyable, incredibly relaxing day... [as this stop is part of the cruise, food is included and no fee is required]
