Thanks for all the posts and advice. I saw on an earlier post you mentioned beaches near the port. Are they nice enough for someone just wanting beach and sun for the day cheap? How far are they - can they walk or do they need to cab, and if cab, what do they ask for?
Thank you again!
The beach nearest the port is Vigie Beach....There's lots of posts here with info about, exact walking direrections rom either pier, etc. Just use the search feature, top right corner of forum to find them.
Lots of natural shade, local rum and food shacks down near the airport entrance, facilities at the airport if needed, etc. No chairs or umbrellas to rent, no real need, loads of natural shade, some benches scattered around the beach, a few grassy areas, etc. Perfectly fine to set down towels, sunbathe, take a swim, etc. 15-20 minute walk from port.
Enjoy your visit...
