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.

We came on a cruise with MSC Divina. We took ourselves on a self guided walking tour around the city (The cruise port has free maps) Everything is within walking distance, but the terrain is steep in places. We went to Junkanoo Beach early afternoon,...More

Junky little beach within walking distance of the cruise ships. Showers and bathrooms, but no good food; just stands of drinks. There is little green water here; mostly dark blue water filled with kelp. If you have time, there are much prettier beaches at Cable...More

Junkanoo Beach is not the cleanest beach on the island. It’s walled in by concrete on both ends, and faces the industrial Arawak Cay to the west. It’s in walking distance from the cruise ship dock, which explains the numbers of people. But the water...More

This beach is small, non-scenic & the sands are junky. Its a very long walk from the ship dock & shopping district. The beach-front merchant sheds do offer some great drinks & food at reasonable prices.

Junkanoo Beach is a nice clean beach and has everything you need close by. Food, souvenirs and drinks all on the beach. For $15, we rented two chairs and that was great. You don’t have to but I’d spend the money, the sand gets everywhere!!...More

No pressure atmosphere. If you want something you'll need to ask for it. People that work at the beverage stands will periodically make rounds to see if you want to order drinks, similar to an outdoor bar with great service... More
