Type: Beaches, Outdoors
Owner description: A famous Jamaican landmark, this breathtaking picture-perfect white sand beach is a tropical slice of heaven. Lounge chairs are lined along the seashore, some grouped amongst shady random clusters of hundred year old almond and palm trees, while others are arranged closer to the waters edge. Enjoy soft reggae music and great Jamaican hospitality. A large bamboo bar offers exotic cocktails and beverages, and the seaside restaurant serves tasty local cuisine.

This has, heartbreakingly, become the epitome of a tourist trap. The beach is not being maintained (under the water is all rocks and no sand. Someone I was with stepped on a sea urchin in very shallow water). Rather than getting some cheap, authentic jerk chicken the food is now incredibly overpriced on top of the $10 entrance fee. Go...

My husband and I went here with our 5 year old and 6 month old baby. Upon arrival they charged us US$25 ($10 per adult, $5 for the child) and checked our car to make sure we weren't bringing any food in. The beach was pretty but ruined by EVERYBODY trying to get money out of us. The food was... More

Great sun loungers and staff water is quite deep tho! So be careful this is a paying beach and I feel it is worth it

Reggae Beach is very nice and comfortable. There was a nice combination of families, groups of friends, locals and tourists. Food and drink will be brought right to you as you lounge in your beach chairs. And, they take debit/credit cards so you don't have to worry about running out of cash. The beach is private and clean. We liked... More

We visited pretty late in the afternoon with our two small kids. We were told that no food was allowed on the beach, however we were told that the kitchen was closed for a staff meeting, after we had placed our order. Annakay, our server, went out of her way to ensure that our order was prepared and our kids... More

Very nice beach clear blue water. Great music . The drinks are great. But you have to pay a little more for admission and drinks if you are not from Jamaica. But it is worth it.
