Beautiful beach

Nice beach. You can also snorkle there if you bring gear. There are a few shops and someone trying to sell music and souvenirs, but kind people, and not too much hassle.

Winnifred Beach is one of the most special spots in Portland. The swimming is safe, their are several local vendors selling authentic Jamaican food and drinks, there's a fresh water spring at the end of the beach to rinse off before leaving. the vibe is good and tourists and locals really mix and mingle.

Beautiful and calm beach, accessible via a rough road or a short walk. Definitly worth the visit. Nice small beach bars and jerk spots on the beach.

Share this extraordinary beautifully beach with locals enjoying their live with music and food. Bring some money because there are wonderful souvenirs sold for good prices. The morning light is gorgeous. Even a trip with one of the fisher boats to Monkey Island or the Blue Lagoon is possible. Just ask Cyntia in the restaurant at the left end of... More

Winnifred is a very nice beach, and not at all crowded. There are many little restaurants to choose from that serve great local food and drinks, as well as local craft shops along the beach.

One of the most breathtaking beaches I have ever been to. Not to mention it is kept very clean. Definitely worth your time.

This is a lovely, local beach. The water is beautiful, but there are lots of stones to walk though…..water shoes recommended. Several very good food vendors at this beach, including a small restaurant endorsed by Anthony Bourdain. A great hang out beach to just while away the day, with no hassles.

I have been to many beaches in the Caribbean. This is certainly not what I would call a beautiful beach. Access was super dirty and rocky, beach was small and kinda not well maintained, water was not clear and stray dogs begging for food.

Great beach, BUT getting there is difficult!! Our cab dropped us off at the top and we made the mistake of walking down the "short cut" path! I literally fell 3 times and was covered in mud by the time I arrived! Needless to say, we hiked the unpaved road to reach the top on our way back and it... More
