You can take your time here, as it will have restrooms and showers for your convenience.
If you're on the lookout for a place where surfers and sunbathers can find solitude, Junkanoo Beach could be just what the doctor ordered.

Thus, it stays relatively quiet except for certain part of the year - Spring Break, for example. You can find it only a quick cab trip away.
Hopping over to a town or community that neighbors your resort can be a nice day trip that brings variety to your trip, whether it's for enjoying a night out in the area, or sampling authentic cuisine with the locals.
