This sand beach with some bigger stones is full of crusaders because it’s next to the ferry’s docks. So life comes and goes with the ships. You can buy cocktails and beer everywhere. The cleanness and the prices are okay.

This beach is ok. It’s close to the cruise port. They have a few outdoor restaurants. You can walk and from the cruise port and visit Arwalk Cay (fish fry) place. Take the #10 bus to other beaches if you had time.
