I've been reading through the reviews telling readers to go elsewhere, but what I'd really like to know is how does one get from the ship (Carnival) to the closest decent beech. I'm going there in May 2013 with my 71yo mother who doesn't want to do much this day. The next day is a long excursion day. She says she would be happy to just put her toes in the water then get lunch. I'd rather it had an OK view, but really just want close and convenient. After dipping our toes ..... any recommendations for food?
