The water will make your skin feel amazing. The water in Jamaica is something to behold but if you get a chance this is a must visit place. The water has some special features to it and the sulphr is only available in this one spot. It truly is worth dipping in the sea and enjoying the results.

Don't miss the beach. Period. We went for a day and paid to be at the swimming beach club. It was glorious. Crystal clear Caribbean water with beautiful sand and wonderful reefs to explore.

Snorkeled, lots of fish, coral and reefs. Water was calm and clear. Beach beautiful and clean. Again, guides asked for tips, did not like that at all

Clean sand, beautiful sea, peaceful, friendly lifeguards n restaurant. It was simply stunning. The life guard threw bread in the sea so that we could see all the different array of fish living in the corals. The sea water is crystal clear. Being on the beach made me think of paradise.

This beach is beautiful and well kept, there's a fee to get in ($6) but it's well worth it! There are waiters on the beach & the food and drinks are awesome! Had a great time here on Saturday! The water is crystal clear and the sand is soft! This is the beach you dream about when you're at work... More
