The beach is great. It looks nice and blue because it's in the Caribbean. You can see the floor when you walk. There are no waves. The water is not very cold. There are also boat tours you can take and try hover boarding.

Not a great beach but it's okay. Just wish the locals didn't have to pay to get in. Should be free! :)

Nice clean beach with fine sand a short walk east of the cruise ship docks. Shallow water goes out for several meters. Great for small children. For a small fee you get access to the beach and washrooms. Loungers and lockers available for an extra...More

We visited this beach (accessible via the Super Foods parking lot with unlimited parking for beach visitors) on a day with no cruise passengers. The crowd was mostly local and the beach felt very safe. There are nice loungers to rent--about $5 US per chair--and...More

The beach as really small, and looked over the cruise ship doc. It was nice, but not much to it...Definitely better beaches in other areas.
