Fodor's Expert Review Junkanoo Beach
Right in downtown Nassau, this beach is spring-break central from late February through April. The man-made beach isn't the prettiest on the island, but it's conveniently located if you only have a few quick hours to catch a tan. Music is provided by bands, DJs, and guys with boom boxes; a growing number of bars keep the drinks flowing. Amenities: food and drink; parking (no fee); toilets; water sports. Best for: partiers; swimming.
