We walked here from the cruise ship, about 15 minutes and very easy to navigate there, and the beach was nice and clean. There's vendors there to offer deals on chairs/umbrellas/drinks. There is a little bit of snorkeling there, not the best, but enough to explore and have a decent time. Piers to jump off into the water (be careful... More

The little huts selling coconuts and drinks tend to have REALLY nice people working there. This is a great little stroll before or after you hit the Fish Fry.

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
