Hello - we will be going to Labadee for the first time next June.  I cannot be in the sun - I have had 4 basal cell surgeries.  I love the beach, however, but need absolute shade.  Here and there I will take a dip, but then need to return to cover.  We also would like quiet, calm water, and access to the food area.  What area would you recommend and what type of shelter is available?  

 

Thanks!

I can't speak for Labadee, but I have had bc surgery also. The real issue with those is the damage you see was caused from many years before. Being in the sun is still good. Just cover up, SPF what isn't and wear a good hat. That is what I do. I do get the shade thing.

Plenty of sunscreen!  And a hat!  You don't have to stay all day, if you don't want to...come and go at your pleasure!  There are trees for shade, if you don't want to spend money on cabanas and such!

I agree with the cabanas!  They will be perfect for you!  We had one in 2014 and the water on that side is very calm.  We're heading there in June as well and they were just on sale for our cruise on the Allure so we booked one already.

My husband also cannot take the sun due to Basal Cell surgeries and last year actually had a very small melanoma in situ which is  fine and didn't spread.  We wear coolibar jackets, hats and swimsuits and loads of sun block.  We always take a cabana.  They are a must for us and worth the money on Ladadee or CocoCay.  

 

I do not get how people still sit in direct sun.  It is so dangerous.
