It has become a favorite spot for joggers and food vendors, and the true Bahamas vibe is capped off by the reggae and calypso music you will hear all along the beach. You can spend as much time as you want at this coastal site, considering there are restrooms available.
If instead you're interested in a more secluded spot of sand, Junkanoo Beach might be a good choice.
