Yes it’s incredibly close and convenient to the cruise ships/port. Yes it offers beach chairs and umbrellas ($46 for 2 chairs and an umbrella with 2 free drinks in front of Tiki Hut); we literally waited over an hour to get all our pieces (2...More

So going there once was enough. It was pretty crowded. The sand a bit rocky. The farther away from the shore you got the softer the sand. We rented chairs, I think 2 for $15. Whatever price they give you just ask them is that...More

First, I will say I’ve never given a one star review, but I need to be as honest as I see it. We arrived for the day off the Royal Caribbean Cruiseline and took a taxi to tour the island, we then walked from Goldies...More

We were recently at Junkanoo Beach while on a cruise and enjoyed it! This beach is very close to where the cruise ships dock (10min walk), so we were able to do some shopping, take things back to our room and go back and forth...More

If you are on a cruise ship and want a walking tour for yourself this beach may be just right for you. It's a 5 minute walk (or less) from the terminal, smallish beach but has all the facilities you need, water craft and activities...More

While walking from Goldies we stop at Junkanoo Beach. Nothing but College Kids getting drunk and having a good old time. More power to them!! Have to say, I stop to use the public washroom, very surprised the washroom was clean!

15 years ago I would have rated this excellent. Still, this is a beach for teens and 20-somethings. In my 40's I only stayed for a few minutes. Being surrounded by 20 year old girls in bikinis while with your wife never makes for a...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!!
