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...

This is a nice, wide beach used by locals. We got proposed some fresh drinks, chaises longues, souvenirs, ganja and food, and the money goes to the workers rather than a private owner. The people were very friendly and we had a great time and very nice food on the beach at Doreen's. Beware of sea urchins, the use of... More

This off the beaten path stop is only previewed by driving down a questionable road. Once there, the water is clear, beach uncrowded, clean, and free:) You might get harrassed by locals trying to see things however stand your ground and they will go away. Best beach experience in Jamaica.

This is the beach all the locals go to. It is lovely. There are many sea urchins on the sea's floor so bring sea shoes. The "walk" / hike down to the beach can be hard core, so if you're over 75 years of age and don't like muddy roads I wouldn't go to this beach. Also there's some nice... More

I personally did not like this beach. The beach has been eroding due to the storms. The water is filled with a lot of rocks and I didn't like it. The benefit to that beach is it offers natural reguvination to the body if you frequent it enough. Your body feels vibrant and youthful. Once you get pass the rocks... More

Love this beach. There are people selling souvenirs but not aggressively. We had the best food that we ate the entire vacation at one of the stands on this beach. It's the red, gold, and green place that is close to the water by where 2 almond trees overhang the surf. The cook is a young guy who is quiet... More

First it is a free access beach. it's mostly visited by locals. It's super clean and the people are so sweet. If you want to meet the people and feel the real jamaican spirit, you have to go there. Forget the blue lagoon or san san beach. Good snorkelling spot, the reef is not far. Big resort company tried to... More

We stopped here and didn't really understand the fascination. It is pretty and free*. It has quite a few peddlers on the beach and we preferred to pay for other beaches that offered less hassle. Also know the road getting there is quite an adventure. Everyone kept saying this is the beach were locals go, however the only locals there... More
