We were to the beach on March 27th as part of our itinerary at Oasis of the Seas. The place is wonderful and it may probably be one of the most beautiful beaches we have seen, HOWEVER after we had paid for our chairs and umbrella for the day, we started to smell an awful fetid smell coming out of the pond nearby.
Locals explained that houses and restaurants around the area have their sewage contaminating that pond that is really close by. we did not need to have a doctor in our party to know that we had to leave the premises 'pronto'. And so we did.
It was a shame since it had great reviews, and the restaurant at the far end of the beach looked just fantastic, but it was a high risk for health and you need to make sure that has changed prior to venturing in a 20' drive that will end up in frustration...
Magens was the alternative and it was really nice, a lot of sea weed but that is nature :) and we had a blast.
just wanted to make you aware of this situation.
