We were there when a music cruise was also visiting so it was very busy. We enjoyed the music, and all the children playing in the sand. It was a nice place!

Great little beach with a bar, good food cooked to order. Loud reggae tunes from a huge speaker system get you in the Jamaican groove, friendly beach boys who will snorkel, kayak and paddle board for a fee. Entry fee is $10. Owned by Chris...More

As part of our trip along the coast we visited James Bond Beach. It was New year's Day and there were few visitors which was surprising. The beach was ideal, the waters warm and blue. The bar was great for a cool beer on a...More

This is a tiny beach - it's not possible to walk here also to the Goldeneye resort should you wish to. It is quite a local oriented beach, rustic with a ramshackle bar called Moonraker which plays music and does some pretty mean cocktails. We...More

Hi I got a very positive response from one other visitor. Thinking of just getting off the ship and asking for a taxi driver to take us. Any idea of what to expect taxi fare? Are taxi's readily available in the area to get back to our ship? Lounge chairs available, what do they charge for loungers? Many thanks fellow sun worshipers.

Sorry cannot help here. Seven of us were staying at Montego Bay and hired a driver for the day to visit James Bond Beach and other attractions in the area.
How far is this beach from the Cruise Ship Port in Ocho Rios? can you get there by boat or taxi better? guessing there are no sun loungers there? We are there just one day would this be the best beach to visit?
