Junkanoo Beach

Great free beach, kind of small but definitely better than paying cruise excursion prices for beach time while in Nassau.

Was awesome to experience . Live music until almost 3am. Great food. If you go to Nassau make sure you go in July - August is when they have the Junkanoo festival

Beach was not very clean, kept finding broken glass. It is a free beach but not very pretty. Will not be returning there.

Getting off the cruise ship, we wondered where to go that we didn't have to pay a fortune for an excursion. After looking on the Internet and asking military personnel in port we found Junkanoo beach. When we walked to it were we taken back that the beach had concrete piers and cargo ships adjacent but that was soon washed... More

There was also a vendor who sold jerk chicken or ribs with two sides for $10.00. Recommend... More

While having a fantastic time on vacation in Paradise Island, Bahamas, I went to the Junkanoo Beach in Nassau. Junkanoo Beach is a nice quiet and pretty beach that is very relaxing.

Typical touristy and business center. It's right on the beach so a lot to do. If you have some time try some of the beach stalls. Cold beer and very fresh food.

This was my sisters and I first visit to Nassau. We were told by our tour guide to try a fish fry by the beach. We walked to Junkanoo Beach and a young lady approached us and I asked where was the fish fry location she informed us it was another 20 minute walk. She said if it is fish... More

We walked here while ashore on our cruise. Had a relaxing afternoon with some live music, local drinks and, of course, the beach, sand and sun!
