We stayed for lunch in the cafe which was awful, cheap burger and chips and a fish that was still raw in the middle (and... More

Lovely bay but impossible to go for a swim as the shoreline was piled up with seaweed and debris. When bringing this up with the personnel they simply said it was due to heavy rains during the previous days and too much work to clean up. Enough said...

Went to the Beach for the first and last time. We got to the Beach around 4p (beach closes at 5p). The staff ran up to us anxiously to collect a full day fee for a 1 hour stay. We payed and were met with a dirty beach full of bottles and trash and rubbish. The beach is gross. The... More

this beach could be so lovely, and in some ways it is. But Jamaica has a problem with TRASH. There are lots of sea urchins everywhere too. Bring sea shoes. Plus you have to pay for this beach.

Great beach. Waves are not too big and sand soft...what more could you ask for? Oh yes, not crowded! Great beach, great day.

I preferred this beach to Frenchman's Cove since you do not have to battle with any under tow or waves. We were all alone at the beach..a little paradise. Not a wide strip of sand but great crystal clear water.

This beach is very calm, and is great for snorkelling, but swimmers must wear water shoes because of the sea urchins found in the weeds as well as on the sand.

Ok, so we are from Florida and are a little spoiled when it comes to beaches. This area is partly grass and partly sand. Luckily, there are some lovely shade trees as the coastal area is very hot. The water was calm, cool, and refreshing.

We took a boat to the beach from the Blue Lagoon. The beach is fine with small waves okay for kids but there is garbage all over just beyond the sand , which was ironic considering you have to pay to use the beach.

Peaceful and quiet beach not crowded very laid back and relaxing. No bells and whistles just white sand and mother nature at it's best.
