There is NOTHING when you get off the ship, so take a taxi to the Port Lucaya area. They have shopping (straw market type) and several hotels/casinos around the beach. The beach is pretty nice and is easily accessible.
Ask your driver on the way over which beach HE (or she) considers the best. I've always gotten good advise.
