Free Public beach on the seven mile beach?

We are going on a cruise, and dont see any cruise excursions worth going on. So I'm wondering if there are public beaches that you can go to for free? if so do any of theses have beach volley ball?

and about how much is it for the taxi fair?

There is a public beach near the Marriott along SMB. Another nice spot (not on SMB) is Rum Point. Can't help you out with taxi fares, we rent a car. Doesn't the cruise line arrange transport? Have a great time.

Depends on what you want to do. Snorkle? Lay on the beach? Have a drink or two? If all of the above you may want to catch a taxi & venture to Cemetary Beach. This would be the closest beach to give you all of these & make the most use of your shortened time period you will have to enjoy this wonderful Island.

If you want to spend a few more dollars I believe you can take a ferry over to Rum Point & have a really great beach, eating & drink establishment & fantastic snorkeling opportunities.

If you do not want to spend alot of $$$ when you get to shore just simply turn to your right & walk a few blocks and you will come to a good watering hole which allows you to get into the water & snorkel. I cannot recall the name of it but it is fun.

There has been no ferry to Rum Point for over two years now.

no services of any kind and also no bathrooms at Cemetery Beach. Public Beach across from Courtyard Marriott on northern area of SMB in West Bay might be your best bet.

You can snorkel free of charge right in downtown Georgetown. Not beaches but snorkel and dive sights right off shore. They use ladders to get into the water. Eden rock is the name of one, the other is the wreck of the Cali. Very enjoyable, walking distance from the cruise port. No need to take a shore excursion. We saw loads of beautiful tropical fish and giant tarpon.

Or just take a taxi to smiths cove or any other seven mile beach, they are all beautiful and close by.

Have a great trip
