Nassau
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

We didn't book an excursion since we only had a couple of hours, we just wanted to go to the beach and explore a little. We planned to go to the Hilton, which is only walking distance from the ship, for a beach day, but later decided to just go to Junkanoo Beach, which is almost next to the Hilton and free. We are glad we chose that since the beach was beautiful, safe, and FREE. There were lots of tourists and some locals, and you have a few bars, chairs, restrooms. It was the best choice, because it was December and the water was coooooold!! It would have been a shame to pay for a beach day and then don't get into the water! We just spent an hour, maybe two there, and then just walked back to the ship looking around the Bay Street shops. We didn't buy anything expect two drinks, but you can find alcohol, souvenirs, jewelry and stores like Fendi.

Loved it!

We went first to Serenity Bay, which is adult-only. The beach was amazing, paradise. The water was crystalline, the sand soft, I even found a starfish. First time I could just relax at a beach, quite, with only the sound of the sea. We only took a break from the beach to have lunch, delicious BBQ buffet and cookies!! After that back to be beach....until it was time to go back so we took the long way, stopped on the stores and just looked around.

If you don't want to just relax, you can rent a cabana, have a massage, rent water motos, bikes, book excursions, use the water slides......maybe next time!
