Nice looking beach but Doctor's Cave much better and more secure.. water not as safe for children in my opinion.

Don’t expect to go to this beach and read a book or take a nap. The music is blasting and it is impossible to talk over it.

You have to rent everything..beach chairs etc. The sand is lovely and clean. You can take a Catamaran ride from there as well.

Plenty of sand and beautiful water. Food and drink available. My only complaint is that you pay for everything....entrance fee, chair and umbrella rental, etc.

We chose this excursion while on the Oasis of The Seas cruise Oct 13-20th. The weather was perfect as were our host Jay and the others who work at Cornwall Beach to ensure we have a good time.

It was closed for a number of years but is now available. Personally we think that beaches would be nice if they did not have any sand which gets into everything!!

Great beach! An alternative to Doctor's cave beach which is right next door. The cornwall beach is on the hip strip in Montego Bay, recently renovated and reopened. Fantastic place. A little more rocky in places than Doctor's Cave next door, though, but more family friendly than Doctor's Cave as the water is more shallow at Cornwall.

This beach borders the Doctors cave beach... it is separated by a wall. Great fried fish! Great service and it is a buck cheaper than Doctors Cave. I will be back here next time.

This is a pay beach where mostly locals hang out, you can catch the dinner cruise for 3 hours for a small fee, no problem on the beach, plenty of security
