Very nice view of the port and a nice place to swim. However, there were a few "salesmen" trying to sell rentals for beach chairs/kayaks/etc. This takes away from the vacation. The portion of the beach I was on was rocky but the water was beautiful.

Just a short walk from the port, this beach area is very nice. The locals that work this beach area are very nice and helpful. The beach chairs are $15 for two. They have beer specials and you can order food which will be brought to you as you relax. The water was a little cold for me, but there... More

Some parts are touristy and crowded, some further down are more private. The part by Western Esplanade is pretty crowded but there are little shacks with bars and water sport rentals.

if you are just for one day in Nassau by a cruise ship then this beach is almost ideal to go there because its just 15 minutes walking far away from the ship. If there are many cruise ships in the port its going to be crowded on this beach. On several spots you can find some restaurants and bars,... More

If you like that then this is your beach. I think the cruise ship people head here to spend the day. Super crowded. There are several vendors, food huts, bar (one has 4 beer for $10. Bargain for Nassau!!), even a massage hut 😣. But if you walk a little more down the road towards the fish fry there is... More

Junkanoo beach is a nice safe beach with various bars and activities. Best deal if visiting Nassau for a day.

Great sand and views, lovely jetty for walking. Lots of music from the cabanas but also nice quiet spots as well. Gets crowded later in the day from the cruise crowd but a nice spot overall especially for walking distance from the harbor
