Spend some time on Junkanoo Beach, a public beach near Nassau's port. Convenient if you're visiting Nassau on a cruise ship, the beach offers a variety of amenities like bars, restaurants, and shops. Rent a beach chair and relax with a coconut drink, or get snorkeling gear and head to the nearby reef. Browse the stalls for snacks and charming souvenirs, go paddleboarding, and enjoy a meal from the bar and grill. The beach can get crowded when the cruise ships arrive, and on weekends when there's organized entertainment for tourists.
