The cove is smaller and the sea choppier than I was expecting, but this is a lovely spot where you can jump in the waves, swim in the river and enjoy food and drink on the beach.

the secluded beach was tranquil and pretty although the cafe and the toilets were quite dirty with flies and mosquitoes. The waitress was rude and miserable. The life guard was very friendly and its a nice spot for sunbathing

The water is clear, fresh, makes you feel rejuvenated and the views from the beach are simply breathtaking! You can see the water at the edge of the sand and as you take your eyes further into the ocean, you will see waves of clear to light blue to turquoise to a deeper blue. The water, the view, really it... More

This is how I imagine paradise. Gorgeous beach, perfect sand, and a beautiful fresh water lagoon on the back. We didn't have the opportunity to stay here for the night which I regret. Dont expect much for food, and there is a cost per person to access the beach

Nice private beach but probably not worth 10$. The beach itself is small, but the water is amazing, and what makes its special charm is the arm of pristine water going inland below the swing.

this beach is for people with money. it's a lovely, small, compact beach with rough surf and a gorgeous fresh cool river that runs along one side of the beach. it's a very nice place but feels a bit like a euro style beach. exclusive.

Really quiet but exquisite beach which has facilities available. The water is incredibly clear and sand is soft and clean. Waves can be a little rough though.

So worth the drive from Kingston. I had to be talked in to it and thank goodness they badgered me in to taking the trip. The drive is typical Jamaica driving, windy, narrow roads. It took us 2 hours to get there. The beach was fantastic. Small and intimate. Costly to enter at $8 a head. Good service on the... More

This is a truly picturesque beach. Clear water and white sand. There is also a lagoon which connects to the sea - something I have never seen before. A very relaxing way to spend your day!
