Sailed here with the wife on Carnival. It's nice to get off the boat, but I wasn't impressed with the beach much. You basically walk off the ship, stroll a few hundred feet and your right there. You can tell the terminal is owned by the cruise lines. I don't know for a fact that Carnival owns it, but it sure felt like it. Automatic gratuity added to bar drinks, etc. Luckily, we were the only boat in port, but it was still crowded. I can only imagine what it's like with more than one ship docked. If we ever go there again, I'm going to the beach for an hour and then getting back on the ship to enjoy it empty.
Here's a tip: Walk down the beach a bit to Jacks Shack and booze up there. Food and drinks are cheaper and better. Even bought a $3 local beer on the way back up the beach to the boat.
