Great beach! Amazing view of the lighthouse and cruise terminal. Chair rental is $10.00. Staff is friendly and helpful. There is a couple of bars and a restaurant on site. Great drink deals - - 4 beers and 4 shots for $12.00.

We stopped here for a little beach time with the kids. The kids loved it. The beach is not well maintained and the street vendors can drive you a bit nuts trying to sell you stuff but overall we had a good experience.

This beach is busy with lots of cruise passengers there for the day. There are bar/food shacks scattered along the walkway. There was a lot of broken glass on the sand so we had to be careful with the little ones. If you want to...More

We visited from the cruise ship we were on, and as it's a public beach, I don't think it would be included with any all inclusive package, but it's worth going to visit for the day!!
