A very good beach; water had different temperatures in different areas. We had different food venders to choose from, the cow skin soup and the brown stew pork was good.

Great, eat at the restaurant nearest the parking lot, farthest left) when facing the beach. I believe it is Belinda who owns it, they offer good food at reasonable prices. Avoid at all costs, the last restaurant at the farthest right when facing the beach, those people are crooks.

This is a simple beach that the locals frequent. There are no beach chairs but you can spread your towel out on the white sand and nap. When you get hot you can cool off in the cool blue sea. when you get hungry roll over to a beach hut and order local fare. This is paradise.

Rocky underfoot, but free and local. Go to Frenchman's Cove for pristine, limited-access beach and to swim without having to wear your surf booties / water shoes; go to Winnifred for the rugged, un-commercialized version.

no signage and a pretty bad road to get to it. Ask questions and most people know how to get there. beautiful beach with good snorkeling. back to basics, just some local vendors selling drinks and Jamaican style food. great to get away from the crowd especially during the week.

We loved this little beach. It was trek to get to it, but well worth it. The vendors were polite and had great prices. Wish I hadn't spent most of my money already. We took a trek along the cost line into the rocks. It was spectacular. Great way to end our trip to Jamaica. They do ask for a... More

We spent the day here yesterday and it was like a little piece of paradise on earth. The water was calm, the beach itself was beautiful. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch of fresh fish caught that morning. We went to the first restaurant on the left as you come to the beach. The owners, Payntor and Cynthia, took excellent care... More

We liked this attractive little beach a lot. The food from Painter & Cynthia's restaurant was phenomenal - the lobster is highly recommended! The beach vendors were very low-key and easy to deal with, and actually make their own items. We special ordered some items, and came back two days later to pick up and pay! Be sure to get... More
