Bloody Bay got the name from the time fishermen were catching and slaughtering whales in the area. This is definitely the best beach in Jamaica. The sand is fantastic, and the sea is soo warm and the water is really clear. Most of the beach is owned by hotels, but there are some stripes that are open to public. It... More

We stayed at RIU Palace Tropical Bay, located on this beach, in June 2014. It was unreal: soft white sand, clear blue water, no weeds, no rocks and almost no waves. For a "lazy" swimmer like me, this is absolute bliss! You can practically stand in the water without moving (unless you wanted to), looking at your toes or watching... More

Went here when I was by myself in May 2014 and found it to be so awesome. I could not believe I had never been here as I stay on the cliffs every time I come out here, which is about 3 times per year for the last 6 years. I had to come back and bring my wife. It... More

We were on Bloody Bay beach for 7 nights in August at the Couples Negril resort. The water is so clear, calm and not rocky. No need for water shoes. Their were vendors but they did not bother you once you said no. The sand was white and soft. Every once in a while you could see the fish swimming... More

Just returned from Negril Yesterday. Bloody bay has crystal clear water and powdery soft sand. We stayed at the Grand Lido Negril and walked all the way down the beach. There are vendors set up on the far end.

7 mile beach is beautiful, but Bloody Bay was my favorite go to spot. Powder white sand and blue waters. Eat lobsters on the beach. Swim until sunset. Get baked. Heaven.

The water is so blue, incredibly warm and gentle lapping waves come ashore. Okay...the water is the saltiest I've ever been in, but you float like a dream. White sand beaches......gorgeous sunsets. the beach is narrow, but lovely. No high tide to worry about like in the States. Great for snorkling! Glass bottom boat ride is wonderful. Other activities include... More

The best beach I've ever been on, beautiful. Not many people, most seem to go to Montego Bay, so if you want to just relax, this is the place to go. I just got home a week ago, and can't wait to go back! Also great area for snorkeling, some amazing marine life not far off shore, unlike anything I've... More

We stayed at a hotel on Bloody Bay and am so glad we did after spending some time at Seven Mile. The water here is pristine, less haggling on the beach, quiet, and decent snorkeling in areas. Perfect for kayaking and sailing a little catamaran. We saw starfish, a puffer fish, little crabs and other small sea creatures. Absolutely beautiful.

This is a beach for folks who want to relax on vacation. Leave 7 mile for the partiers. We are people who want to unwind and not need a vacation from our vacation. Bloody Bay fits the bill perfectly!!
