A famous Jamaican landmark, this breathtaking picture-perfect white sand beach is a tropical slice of heaven. Lounge chairs are lined along the seashore, some grouped amongst shady random clusters of hundred year old almond and palm trees, while others are arranged closer to the waters edge. Enjoy soft reggae music and great Jamaican hospitality. A large bamboo bar offers exotic cocktails and beverages, and the seaside restaurant serves tasty local cuisine.

It was a bit costly for 3 sodas was $16.00 us dollars. They offer other activities such as kayak, jet ski etc. The area around the... More

This was the beach I was looking for in Jamaica. The water was cool, clear and refreshing. It is in a tropical setting with plenty of shade and not a lot of vendors to bother you. Bring your own snorkeling equipment and enjoy the view underwater. Bring an underwater camera as well! They were serving an outstanding barbecue chicken the... More

We arrived at "Reggae Beach" for the first time, only to find that it has recently been named "Bamboo Beach Club". This is a paid beach: 900jmd for locals with ID or $11 us for tourists. This grants you access to the property, gets you a beach chair and space on the beach, and provides you with a hostess who... More

Very pretty beach, clean, no hassle, good service, entertainment (my daughter danced with the two dancers to the bongo drums) and friendly atmosphere. Beautiful water and sand. Worth the small fee!

We traveled to Reggae Beach after leaving a terrible Bamboo Blu. We were much happier here. There is a fee to get in, which sucks, but I understand, I want to say I paid like $15. The fee gets you a personal host who brings you anything you might need (you can order food and drinks at an additional cost).... More

We were at a hotel that had a small beach so we wanted to go to a nice bigger one. The beach is beautiful. Had a bar and food. We were given a complimentary salad which was delicious. Water was crystal clear. Would go again.
