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.

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!

Nice beach to relax in the water or on the beach with gorgeous views of Nevis in the distance. Restaurant on site.

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

This is a great beach, and I enjoy it... Just waiting to see it get better as it grows. Not a lot of shops or such to bother you here

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.

As with most of the really nice beaches this one is a pay to use beach but worth the cost. Food and drinks bit pricey compared to other beaches. We brought our snorkel gear and bread got some nice pics of tropical fish.

The beach is clean and large to walk in both directions. The views are incredible. The staff is friendly. They have all the facilities you need: bathrooms, restaurant, bar, organic juice bar. The food is pricey so be prepared to spend - they do take credit cards which is convenient! They have chairs and beds and huts and lots of... More
