This beach has a lot of bars and food shacks. The Bikini Tiki Hut is well-known. The only issue I have is the amount of trash. Trash is all over every beach that I went to...bottles, styrofoam, paper, etc. It’s like no one cares about...More

Nice beach with clear waters, but only gave it a 4 stars because there were some bits of coral and rocks at the bottom that you have to watch out for or else you would easily scrape your feet. Also, the beach was lined with...More

So we did research about what to do while in port prior to arriving in the Bahamas and this was the nearest beach that was within walking distance from port AND WAS FREE! We visited in October of 2017 and the weather was HOTT. The...More

On maybe I went in thinking this experience would have been better. The day was sweltering so all I wanted was a chilled time at the beach. There were so many people. The sand wasn’t that inviting and people everywhere. Lunch was ok from a...More

We had a really great time here. This is the place to come for cocktails and a party atmosphere that is still kid friendly. Drinks flow, service is great. You can reserve day beds and umbrellas complete with your own server. The prices are some...More

I liked this beach a lot. It’s a short walk from the cruises. I love that it is free! It is fun to sit here and have a beer or two while laying on the beach, something you can’t do in the US. Yeah, it’s...More

This beach is awful! There is literally trash everywhere because people eat and drink at the vendors located on the beach and do not throw their trash away. I was saddened to see it. My husband and I walked from the cruise port in the...More

We visited from the cruise ship we were on, and as it's a public beach, I don't think it would be included with any all inclusive package, but it's worth going to visit for the day!!
