We were on a tour that stopped here for awhile and it is a beautiful place. It has really clean soft white sand and there's also a great view of the ships and light house from here.

Love this beach. Away from the hustle and bustle and filled with character. Great beach bars and food options.

The beach was decent but overcrowded. There were some food vendors there, and you can also rent chairs with umbrellas. The water was nice but a little cloudy. The Pier was cool; however, we probably won't be going back to Junkanoo beach.

This is a local beach, right by the cruise ship port so I assume it can get really crowded. It's small and narrow not a super long strip. Lining the strip are little shack restaurants with drinks, food and lots of music. This is not...More

This beach is about a 15 minute walk from the cruise port. As such, it gets a lot of visitors from the cruise ships. The beach itself is okay. It has a lot of beach huts selling drinks, souvenirs, etc. There are also free bathrooms...More

This beach is within walking distance of the port, so we decided to give it a try. It was pretty crowded with 4 ships in port, but we were able to rent 2 chairs and an umbrella for a fair price. The beach is kind...More

We visited from the cruise ship we were on, and as it's a public beach, I don't think it would be included with any all inclusive package, but it's worth going to visit for the day!!

Beach & Atalantis but which Beach? (2 Replies)
We will be in Nassau for a short time (12pm-6pm). We would like to see Atlantis (the free stuff) and then go to a beach. Would it be best to go to Cable, Cabbage or Junkanoo Beach? I've heard that Junkanoo is closer to the cruise port so I thought that might be a good idea to head back to the port after Atlantis. But since I don't know the proximity of Cable or Cabbage Beach to Atlantis or the cruise port, I thought I'd ask here. Would it be worth getting a $25 day pass at the Sheraton on...More

With a short port of call of only 6 hours, going to Atlantis (Paradise Island) with getting there and back, and walking around will take up most of your stay. Cabbage Beach is just to the east of the Atlantis resort. There are two ways to get to Atlantis. One is the water taxi that crosses the harbor to PI. Trip takes about 15-20 minutes, and is $3 pp each way. It's not the fastest option, as the boats do not leave until they are full. The water taxis can be found just to the right as you...More
