“Great Beach for Relaxation and Being Secluded”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Beautiful clear water beach with waiters from the bar. Great for being secluded, we had the beach basically for ourselves for nearly 3 hours with just a few other visitors. And the guys do a great job of cleaning the beach of corral reef and whatever else every morning. If you take a boat from one of the villas, you don't have to pay the fee.

“Beautiful Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

White sands and relatively calm waters. Just simply beautiful. Its not a public beach but for a small entrance fee (J$400), it is worth it. My friends and I enjoyed our time there. Easy access from the main road.

“Sad decline in beach that is not maintained well”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

About sixteen years ago we shared a nearby villa with friends from Kingston. We had a wonderful time and one of the benefits of the villa was entrance to San San Beach that was gated and very popular. This time we drove in past a guard shack that seemed to be falling apart. There were no other visitors. The beach is quite narrow and a lot of grass or weeds lined the shore. We asked some people not associated with the beach and were told that it is owned by an individual who is not maintaining it. The bay still looks good for swimming but the entire area has had an economic decline that is very sad.
