The waters at this beach were amazing and calm. The people at the seaside shops were super friendly and the local food was delicious. Can't wait to go back.

After being stranded by a no show on our Bahamas Segway tour, we walked to the beach. We met a lady leaving who said, "watch out there is broken glass everywhere." We did see several pieces of broken glass on the beach but the water was clear and the sun was bright and it was a cheap way to spend the day in Nassau.

Water was calm, beautiful.. But it was rocky and lots of broken glass. Homeless onlookers.. Wear shoes and enjoy the visit!

We went to the tourist beach the first time around and it was crowded but beautiful and had a lot of things to do aka purchase but we decided to stay local and explore the area on our own so we decided to come here. It was pretty local, you won't find many tourist in the area. The beach is beautiful and the color is breathtaking. The had side area were many trees stood and a lot of the leaves and other things were there so be careful if you want the shade because there a lot of glass and leaves and other things that might injure you. The site of the ported cruiseships was pleasant. They have shopping areas around so enjoy it if you ever get hot or bored, but be careful because the stuff is quite expensive.

If you're the picky type, go to your private island. If you want to walk to the beach from the cruise ship, listen to rasta music while sipping a freshly-made coconut drink or Kalik, and interact with the locals, this beach is paradise. We've been paying through the nose for Carnival excursions and ran across these reviews about this beach and decided to give it a try last week. My wife had the time of her life and we enjoyed it so much that we're jumping on a disney cruise with our daughter and her hubby in 3 months just to return to Junkanoo Beach. My recommendation is to hang out at the Junkanoo Beach Bar and Grill "hut" and get some jerk chicken from the guy at the smoker grill and get him to chop off the top of a coconut for you so the hut tender can blend up a nice rum drink for you. Glass on the beach? I specifically looked for it because I'd read about that here before the trip and found none. My wife said she saw one piece. Rocky? The Bahamas is a limestone shelf...duh. This is a public beach and they aren't going to rake it for you. I had no trouble at this free beach but hurt my left foot the following day at Peterson Cay after paying through the nose again for an excursion. Just wear water shoes. Bathrooms? Looked fine from the outside but had too much fun to remember to go inside and look. A storm came and we had to run so never had to go while there.
