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.

$5 per person to step onto this empty beach - and for what? There is garbage on the beach, without amenities unless you count the string of buoys denoting the designated swim area. It was frustrating not to be able to come to this beach, given that we were staying at Goblin Hill Villas, with its view overlooking San San... More

we had a look at San san beach, it did not look very clean or attractive. there is only one restaurant - bar, so no choice. Winifred Beach is much nicer, cleaner and it is free, while San San is 6 dollars per person

Went horseback riding there and although walking distance from where we stayed, we did not go back. Small dirty beach, go to Winifred's instead.
