DO NOT do any "official", "organized", or "pre-booked shore-tours". Take a walk through the bulls#!t and you'll find Kevin. I had 4hrs to kill in Ocho Rios with no plan, and this guy reaffirmed my faith in humanity. If you want to get hustled and waste your money on tourist s#!t, then fine, but my advice is to find Kevin,... More

Ocho Rios beach is a public beach in the center of town. If you are arriving by Cruise ship this is an easy place to get to for a day of swimming. You are in the bay where the ships arrive so the view is of the marina and pier and there are 2 hotels on this area as well.... More

Resort is built right on the water which is nice, BUT therefore the beach is small. The lounge chairs were uncomfortable and weird!

Came on the Carnival Breeze with another couple, did the horrible Straw Market, walked through a resort to this beach, looked like a locals beach, paid $2.00 p.p. entrance fee and immediately was approached to rent a lounge. Kept walking all the way to a small beach bar which was surprising friendly. Started drinking OverProof rum and Cokes. Wife changed... More

Crystal blue waters, hot sun, and rude, annoying Rastas trying to sell me drugs or making snide racial comments.

It's a path, we could have walked ourselves, but they walk you all the way into the property and then want a tip. I gave... More

Ocho Rios did not have so pretty beaches as Negril. There were quite windy every day and the sea was not calm.
