Nice, quiet beach away from the crowds

The beaches near the cruise terminal are packed with people, grab some people, rent a taxi and relax in a quiet setting where you can actually see sand instead of just people!

Spectacular beach, secluded, shaded with wooden benches to sit on, crystal clear water, even had a stingray swim past me in the water! Watch the Passenger ships arrive and leave Port.

Great place - also called Governor's Beach - to collect sea glass and shells. There is an old abandoned ship on site too.

We were looking to have a nice relaxing beach day and most everyone gets off the ship and heads to the beach and pool offered at the nearby Margaritaville. With two cruise ships in port, it was extremely busy and loud so we went for a walk and ended up at the Columbus Landfall National park where there is a... More

This was by far the best part of our trip. There was a gentleman, Trevor, who was selling beach loungers and umbrellas. My sister and I rented one and took turns walking the beach. We each found empty conch shells and sea glass. Humpback whales were frolicking out at see, too. The water was gorgeous and was a wonderful way... More

Even for the beach, it's not worth the taxi drive. STAY NEAR THE CRUISE TERMNINAL you'll save the taxi bill. The beach are much more clean and anyway there is absolutly nothing to see in "town".

nice beach located near town. if you want a quieter beach, away from the cruise terminal=come here. I do recommend water shoes-rocky and rough spots on feet. the water here is crystal clear. restaurants and shops are nearby.

Most of the cruise passengers hang out at the beach right next to the cruise ships. There are plenty of restaurants & shops in that area. There is also Pop & Island music blaring the whole time too. I wasn’t in the mood for partying so I decided to go for a run. I came across Governor’s beach first (approximately... More

Some nice beaches which are covered on there own. The park is just a sign on the beach. Go for the beach, not the park

Beautiful, tranquil clear blue water. The bluest water I've seen. It was just like the Corona commercial.
