I was on my own but wanted a bit of beach action without driving too far from Kingston. This is a private beach with proper toilet facilities and some bars / food options. The beach was clean, the water was warm and the sun was shining. I will return....

Nice beach but the charge you for everything and I meant everything. So not worth what you pay...I would go again but only if I can't make it to the northcoast

I checked the website before I left home to visit the beach and the website confirmed that the beach was open. Much to my horror after driving for an hour - it was closed for a private event! Very poor customer service. I went further down the road to Boardwalk and the beach was disgraceful. My children refused to go... More

It's quite if you need privacy and pie e of mind. Have resturant and bar. Close when it gets dark, you might need to take your own chair and towel . You are allowed to bring food inside. Great for a family picnic

Nice beach you pay to go in that is cool it is not crowded and you enjoy your time. If you are looking to hang with friends and family for day out this is the place.

I went not in week end, so it was not many people, it was quiet. The beach has many trees, so you can have enough shadow. Also, some benchs and tables. And a long beach to walk, more than in other places in Jamaica. Near Kingston, a good option if you are in the city.
