Which beach do folks recommend - close to cruise port

Or at least reasonable distance and easy to grad a taxi back. We are a couple tarveling without children. Only requirement is that beach chairs are available for free or reasonable rental.

Thanks!

The beach at Great Bay, where the ships dock, is very nice if you don't want to travel far. Chairs available, lots of nice restaurants on the promenade and if you need to shop, you only have to walk back one block.

If you want lots of activities and beach bars, grab a cab to Orient.

We like Mullet Bay closer than Orient but anywhere on the island you have to pay for chairs. The beach where in cruise ships dock is nice. Always ask the taxi cabs how much before you get in the cab, some charge more.

If they charge more, they're not a licensed cab. The fares are regulated.
