“Fun, but not the best beach”
Review of Junkanoo Beach

Junkanoo Beach
Ranked #25 of 76 things to do in Nassau
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 April 2018

There is lots of entertainment at Junkanoo, but the beach itself is kind of rough. The sand it not soft like the other beaches, there was a fair amount of garbage, and there weren't a lot of places to lay down. We spent about an hour here, but never did go into the water. We just sat on the pier and relaxed.

We came to this beach as a part of our excursion time away from our cruise. We were one of two groups on the beach. There was glass on the beach among other trash. When we did attempt to find something to eat we were followed by some of the more popular restaurants “herders” everywhere we went. I finally paid a few of them to just go away. We eventually decided on a restaurant and the food wasn’t all that great. I won’t be returning to this beach in the future and wished we would’ve actually stayed on the cruise for this stop. I agree with some of the prior reviews, this is a spot for the young high schooler and 20 year olds, who will be so drunk they won’t care about the little things.

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 to hire, bars, food places, lounge chairs etc.

A small jetty and nice enough views. As this small and central located I expect it gets very busy and perhaps noisy, but for a snapshot view and water paddle it was good for us. I noticed some snorkelling BUT I did not see any signs of fish life.

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!
