After two weeks being ripped off at Atlanti$ with $7+taxes beers, $40 pizzas and $20 burgers, Junkanoo Beach was a revelation. Great value ice cold beers at both Seagull's Bar and the adjacent JYAH, run by the magnificent Barry. A few hours at these bars and you begin to relax and feel that you're in the Bahamas, not some dreadful... More

This beach is nasty and not safe. Avoid here. It's gross, gross, gross. Trash everyone and pick pockets.

Junior at water sports on end of beach is great- great prices IF you are looking to paddle board the equipment consisted of one and several hard ride on top kayaks. The paddles are broken or limited. The best part - the people, local and nice. Prices are cheap and it a little walk from cruise ship.

When I arrived in Nassau, I was assuming that they took care of their environment, considering how fragile it is. This beach is small, and dirty. In fact, the whole area is dirty- there's garbage all over the place, and I was so disappointed and horrified to see how poorly maintained this area is. You can see that people have... More

Walkable from cruise. Nice beach overall, although not very big. The main part of the beach does have vendors, bars and music, with beach events. Husband and I walked to end and looked for a quieter spot to lounge. We found it but this area of the beach wasn't maintained and had some garbage, broken glass, etc. The main part... More

Nice beach but not as nice as the ones at the Resorts. Still beautiful, clear water etc. Good local vibe.

Dirty water filled with garbage. Vendors everywhere trying to sell you anything and everything. Loud dance music pumped out from the food/drink stalls all day.

If you want to party..this is the beach for you! Loud music, DJ, drinks and drunks. We prefered to move down to the less loud and crowded beach next door...much better.
