A great local beach and minimal entry fee (about £1.50). Clean and safe and good swimming. Resort building site adjacent to beach, possibly very crowded when resort is completed.

We had a great time checking out Main St. We also went to the market, which we did not enjoy as much. The sellers were friendly but were also a little too aggressive for me. However, I'm glad we had the experience.

Decided to take a day trip to Ocho Rios from Strawberry Hill. We thought we'd spend some time at the beach, however, after viewing the beach, the barbed wire fence & the line to pay to go to the beach, we didn't feel comfortable nor happy with visiting.

Most relaxing place I have found in Jamaica. Wonderful snorkling, swimming, kayaking, windsurfing, sailing, great beach and the best Jerk Chicken ever! Prices are less than Negril and Montego Bay for the same amenities.

Best beach I have ever been to. The water is so clear, so clean and sooooo warm. White sand and lots of space to lay down and relax.

I went to Ocho Rios a number of years ago. It has a beautiful beach and the people are extremely friendly and helpful. There's so much to see within a short distance. The town of Castries is well worth a visit it has a fantastic market worth a visit. A definite must on the bucket list of places to see.

We got off the cruise ship and went to the beach for the day. It was a great place to swimming just hang out. The people were very friendly and helpful.
