Culturally interesting with the food and beverage tiki bars and huts. A little loud on the side of the beach with the food huts, but the father away you walk, the quieter it is. Nice view of the port.

Friendly vibe but a bit scruffy with litter and seaweed piled up. The water looks beautiful to swim in but I'd be a bit put off by the state of the beach itself

By reading reviews on here we knew well in advance that we'd be approached by a lot of people trying to sell chairs, hair braiding, etc. BUT we took the advice of some reviewers and found Ms. Sue (currently the brown umbrellas near the cement pier/water breaker). Her chairs were abundant (we had nine adults and all had a chair)... More

Got of the Harmony of the Seas cruise to enjoy a nice bath at the beach, walked like 15-20 minutes to get there, cool water, paid $ 45 for two chairs,1 umbrella and 6 local beers. Recommended to be with the family and kids for 1.5 hours max. The only problem is that there are no bathrooms and no where... More

We did come only a month after a hurricane and that does lead to trash on beaches being washed in, but Junkanoo was kept very clean by the businesses. All other beaches had lots of seaweed and trash, some of it being very unsafe. Because of the harbor Junkanoo is fairly protected and the waves are very light, which made... More

This beach is just a few minutes walk from the cruise terminal with golden sand leading down to dark blue water that looked really inviting the day we were there because it was so hot. There was a lifeguard on patrol and deck chairs available as well as the odd vendor with drinks and souvenirs. Certainly no shortage of conch... More
