Beautiful beaches, people, some too pushy at times like the market but just stand yer ground, everyone needs to make a buck, it;s low season which is really hard on them financially.

Beautiful beaches. We saw starfish and sting rays this trip! If only we could make the seaweed go away, but that even became a game everyday!

It's very nice. Not nearly as nice as 7 mile beach. Too much seaweed that isn't cleaned up regularly. Seems to be more local vendors on this stretch of sand vs. 7 mile beach as well.

We ventured to the beach on our own. It was difficult to find parking but we did eventually find a parking area that seemed to be used by locals. It was gated. We swam on the beach and were not bothered by any staff. We even... More

Blood Bay is shaped like an n with the 2 legs claimed by resorts and the top being public but this is the narrowest part and is occupied full time by market stalls owned by local traders...no Jamaican contact authorities
