... and you will get rewarded with some nice Caraibean beach feeling. Water is clear and clean, supervised swimming area rather small but you can go further for e.g. Snorkeling. Be aware of the tide, maybe currents or boats may pass rather nearby occasionally. Staff...More

Went to the beach with a group of friends. The beach club had plenty chairs at the time we got there around 11 am. The beach is rocky and not very swimmer friendly. There was shade under the trees. Music was too loud and there...More

Not much to see. Little slice of beach in front of a restaurant. The RIU is directly next door. It was just ok.

I believe this is the same Bamboo Blue beach that we visited at Mamee Bay Estates. You need to enter via the restaurant entrance; and, no outside food or drink is allowed into the area. The beach is beautiful, clean, the water shallow and relatively...More

good clean beach and very scenic. I liked the wild dancers on the sands and the jerk chicken was tasty. I also was fascinated by the anole lizards that would flare their yellow throat sack --very interesting in the trees.

The trip took over an hour but our guide, Amanda, was engaging the whole way. We were greeted with a photo and drinks. We found a nice shady spot and enjoyed what seemed like endless food and drinks (they had non alcoholic drinks for us)...More

This shore excursion was booked thru Royal Carribbean. If we had known how rocky the beach was we wouldn't have booked this one. It took over an hour by bus from our port in Falmouth. The a/c on the bus was intermittent. Marlene, our tour...More
