We walked bay street and shoppped. Got to the beach, sat down. Move farther down. Do not stay by the bar. Whatever it is, like a margaritaville. Glass there and none farther down. Such a difference. Sat by the area where the local boys run and jump off the pier into the water. There are also huts that sell beer and food. Bring a towel they do not rent chairs. The chicken was unbelieveable!! Jerk chicken $5! Small but enough for the 4 of us for a snack b4 going back to the ship. Also tried the beer stand 3 beers and 3 bahama mama shots for $10. Noone selling anything walking around! Could see the cruise ships in port from there very close!!

I went here while I was cruising on The Carnival Pride. This was one of our excursions. It was a nice clean beach and the water was nice. There were umbrellas and lounge chairs to rent. Loved It. I can not wait to go back!!

Although we didn't stop by Junkanoo beach i could see the changes they made and it's a major improvement, lovely atmosphere and in walking distance.

We decided not to spend money on an excursion. Junkanoo Beach was a short walk from our ship, the Carnival Fantasy. The beach was very clean, and the water was beautiful. There were lots of broken shells in the water, so I would suggest wearing water shoes into the water. You can rent chairs and umbrellas, but there is no hard sell. A man came up to us and introduced himself and said he had chairs and umbrellas if we needed them, then he left us alone. There are a few food stands and souvenir stands. A nice, inexpensive place if you want to spend time at a beach.

This lovely little beach is a microcosm to sample the Bahamas....so if on a tight schedule, stroll past the colonial hotel and find this little treasure. Authentic food, reasonable price refreshments, golden beach and warm Bahamian waters.
