The breeze was cool, lot of beautiful ladies. The food stalls had different foods, very delicious, the color of the water of the beach is blue. The long line of trees provide shade.

This was our favourite beach in Portland. This beach is free for all (although you can give a small donation to help keep the beach clean) so there are a nice mix of locals and tourists here. We came on a Saturday afternoon and it was really nice seeing Jamaican families with their children on the beach (the kind of... More

Liked that it is a wide expanse of sand. Hike to get to from the road. BEWARE sea urchins. They are abundant and you can't avoid them easily.

very pretty sandy bay / beach. Best in mornings, in the afternoon there is not that much sunshine. Nice mix of locals and tourists. Free, but you can give small "donation" to guy and entry. The road there is bumpy dirt road but manageable with normal car if you're a good driver.

Best beach I've seen in Jamaica. The beach is public, clean and the water is just perfect. Perfect spot to chill out with friends or family!

There are a few vendors that sells food on the beach. we had already stopped off at Boston Jerk Center before coming here so I din't get... More

Gorgeous blue water and sand to sit on. A beach restaurant on the sand for snacks and several vendors, so it's not secluded, but it is fun.

So many people say they have been to Jamaica but you really haven't unless you get out from behind the walls. I have been coming to Jamaica for 20 years and only 2 times behind the confining walls of the all inclusives. Going to Winnifred is about enjoying a day at the beach with friends and family. Not easy to... More

I really like this beach. It's a comfy and relaxing place. The beach is clean and many places to hang your hammock. There are bunch of eateries so if you are hungry after playing or swimming in the beach, look no further. I went to this beach twice. Second day I lounged on my hammock near the beach. This place...
