We took a mini van over to "Atlantis" and the man dropped us at a public entrance just up from "Atlantis" (same beach in fact). No charge to go on and the local boys were selling cold drinks etc at good prices, no rip offs. However, the sea was too rough, it was knocking adults over so our kids 8 and 6 could only sit on the sand and let the waves over their legs. Not the smooth caribbean we had expected ........quite disappointing really for the kids and us as we were hoping to relax in the sun. Wish we had headed for Cable beach instead, the opposite side. Maybe someone can advise if they have tried ? I know Holiday Inn offers day passes but I don't know the prices, or about the public entrances there.
