Large and spacious. Lots of beach huts and lounge chairs. A bit of a walk from the hotel. Close to the lunch bar with help yourself beverages. Can be noisy from the sailboat's loud "music" picking up and dropping off cruise ship passengers. Could be anywhere from 1 to 4 boats with loads of people. Sand is a bit coarse... More

I stayed a week at royal Decameron and hung out on this beach everyday. I checked out doctors cave and dead end beach. Neither compare to Cornwall. Cornwall is so neat and tidy. Great sand. Nice bar. Music. Lots of new chairs. Shade umbrellas everywhere. Volleyball. Washrooms and showers. Highlight of my trip.

As part of the Royal Decameron Montego Bay this is a beautiful beach. Sometimes a little busy when the Cruise ship people come in but still lots of room to move. Lifeguards do a great job.

The music was loud and annoying 3 sets of cruise shippers ashore a few hours... Well organized outing but its gonna be a little less touristy and a bit more... More

Sorry but coming from Negril, we just could not pay to swim.. The beach was wall to wall loungers with no swimmers. The cruise ship had a 4 hour stop there too, so it was busy. We had a drink at the bar and enjoyed talking to the bartender. He makes a great rum punch. Beautiful place is you like... More

I love Cornwall Beach for its relaxing vibe and convenient location. The sand quality is excellent and the sea just right if you are a swimmer and non- swimmer. If you have small babies there are other beaches in Montego Bay that would be more appropriate as the sea can sometimes get deep very quickly and the waves are not... More

Nice beach, we went there to board a catamaran, it seems if you are there to use the beach it's like 7.00 to get in

The beach was clean and felt safe. We went on a Sunday and they provided free drinks if you purchase a cup. The beach was crowded with and played wonderful jumping music. Had a ball and would go back.

Clean and Well looked after, with security to ensure people are not harassed by the locals. Okay, but felt it wasn't much different from the beach at the hotel I was staying at.
