Default Tabyana Beach

I've read conflicting information about getting to Tabyana beach. Can you only go there by booking through Carnival or can you get private transportaion (taxi etc..) to take you there?

The $35 per person fee from Carnival seems high for a 30 minute bus ride. But I am really interested in going here.

Tabyana beach is so awesome!
We did the Carnival tour. 35 didnt seem too terrible to me, thats there and back. So worth it.

I have heard you can hire a taxi for the day dirt cheap

Thank you SeaWench. I see you were on the Legend in September; how is it. I've been a little concerned cause I don't see a lot of people on here who have been on the Legend. I was beginning to wonder if I made a bad choice of ship. We actually picked this cruise for the stops, not the ship.

Can you get to Tabyana by private taxi?

Thanks again. Terri

ps. this message board is great I wish I had of found it before booking my cruise. there is so much information on here. not that I regret the cruise I chose.

Yes you can. Easy to arrange once you get there. Hire for trip or the entire day.

There are more than a dozen resorts on Tabayana beach. Anyone can go to the beach. BTW--The generic name is West End beach. Perhaps they could not go to that ONE individual resort that Carnival uses, but no one can keep you off the beach itself.

I can tell you it's a long drive up and down hills to get there, but by far the best excursion we've ever taken. Remember if your excursion is delayed the ship waits for you, it's the opposite if your on your own. Sometimes it's the peace of mind of not being left behind that justifies the cost.
