Looking for beac near cruise ship port

I will be arriving via ship. We have been several times before, and have done all the "things to do" stuff. We would really like to find a quiet/uncrowded beach nearest the cruise ship pier. Preferably with chairs/umbrellas for rent, and possibly refreshments. The most important is the quietness and nearest. BUT....it must be clean and safe and swimmable. Also, if you know the approx cost for cab to and from. Thanks for info ASAP.

Carlisle Beach seems to suit your needs, 5 minutes from pier.

Enjoy your cruise!

Definitely Carlisle Bay, but avoid the Boatyard (full of cruise passengers!)

Thank you both. That sounds like the ticket! I assume they charge for chairs, etc. Do you know how much? How much should a cab cost?

We just got back, an we really enjoyed Carlisle beach. Just $4 pp from ship. Very nice place to relax. $15 for 2 chairs and umbrella. little bar nearby. Vendors are not pushy. Would recommend.

Where should I ask to be dropped off at Carlisle Bay, if not the Boatyard?

If not the Boatyard you could get dropped at Bay Street Esplanade. It is right opposite Government Headquarters - you could go and see the statue of Sir Grantley Adams.
