For kids they do have a water park that includes inflatables and trampolines and such, but it might be too much for kids your age. I know older kids, teens, and even adults enjoy it a lot. There is also a very mild water slide, but it does not get good reviews. Both of these cost extra. The best beach for kids in my opinion would be Colombus Cove. It is a bit of a walk from the pier (just under half a mile), but they have a little tram system you can take to different spots. Colombus Cove is the last stop coming from the pier. This beach is all sand - not rocky at all like the beach that faces the Atlantic on the other side of the pennisula.
Labadee also has the Adventure Ocean Oasis, which is for younger kids, and I do not believe there is a charge for that, but double check to be sure - it's been a while since ours were that young and I can't remember. Whatever you do, Labadee is a great stop and if you are just looking to hang out at the beach, it is exactly what you want. You won't be ready to leave at the end of the day.
