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.

$10 USD each to get in. They couldn't break a US $50 bill. Kind of annoying but they let us add it to our bar/lunch tab. And by that point we spent more than $50 so it was nice that they took credit/debit cards. Pretty beach, comfy chairs, clean bathrooms. The food was suprisingly good, drinks too. Service was lousy.... More

Entrance fee 10 dollars per person. Place felt secure and had plenty of shade. Lounge chairs o.k. But lacked that great back support. Hostess was attentive and food was good. The sand was difficult to walk on compared to other beaches as it had a bread crumb consistency. You can rent kayaks and snorkeling gear, have your hair braided, shop... More

We went with a tour group and did the Dunn's river fall first, and then we were taken to this beautiful beach. We were treated with food, drink and had the most relaxing time ever! The beach is beautiful, we were in the top section of the beach, the sand is pure, unlike some of the other reviewer, we had... More

We did a combined tour to the Blue Hole and Reggae Beach with Yardie Tours. We really enjoyed Reggae Beach. The beach was beautiful, the food was great, and the drinks were delicious. We didn't do much while on the beach here except lay in lounge chairs and relax but this location was great for it.

Be careful, this is a private beach, you pay 10 $ for entrance to a beach which is not as beautiful as hundred other FREE beaches in this wonderful island. When you go there, you see a big white door closing the entrance, some security guards outside, they check your things like you are entering a big store, (they dont... More

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
