Felt quite safe at this beach. We were able to rent chairs and umbrellas for $5:00 each. Only disappointment was in regards to the bar service. Bartender came up to me on the beach to took drink orders. The drink was $7:00. I asked her if she could make mine a little stronger. She did not tell me taht there... More

Boat rides are available here and will periodically pick up and dump large groups, but without a cruise ship in town, this relatively small beach was still lovely and enjoyable. They will serve you food and drinks and there is a gift shop as well as bathrooms. Worth the price of admission, easily, if yousre going to spend a day.

The beach is small, but the sand is nice. There is an "iceberg" to climb (or to push people off of), which can be good for tweens and teens. There can be an issue with having enough beach chairs. Otherwise, there is really nothing special about this beach.

My family and I decided to go on a catamaran snokeling tour provided at the Rose Hall Hilton in Jamaica. We ended up at Cornwall Beach. OMG what a beautiful place! This beach was well managed, very clean, safe and the tour was very organized. The staff was very friendly and provided many different activities for my kids. The next... More

It's totally done over,I can't believe they removed this huge tree that the bar surrounded had to be over 400 yrs old and it was gone and the stump covered with a gazebo...WOW! They cleared it...

To see the piece of beach here through the closed gate, it looks wonderful. I was even excited to see on the Cornwall Beach Montego Bay facebook page that there is a "beach party" on wednesdays that includes an open bar with the price of admission as our cruise stopped in MoBay on Wed. The fact that I have read... More

I call this beach average cause it is literally the smallest beach I've ever been too. But still a beautiful beach you can walk right over from Doctor's Cave.
