Lovely quite scenic beach just within distance from the apartments in Mikuzi. You would almost think your on a private beach

In comparing Winnifred, Boston, and long bay beaches: Winnifred: this one was overall the best. Beautiful views and a decent (but not plentiful) amount of sand to sit on. Friendly locals who provide coconuts (drinking and eating) and can cook food in their places on the beach. The "cleaning contribution" they ask for upon arrival is apparently not working as... More

It was very refreshing to visit this beach. It was my first time there (2nd time in Jamaica) and I can't wait to go back. I have fun with the kids burying ourselves in the sand and there was a Lil boat ride attraction where you get into a speed boat and make jumps. I didn't do it but it... More

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!
