Amazing beach with soft sand that is isolated and uncrowded. Nothing beats drinking pina coladas on the beach, taking a break for some local jerk, and enjoying a swim in the warm water.

Wow! This place is just gorgeous. The employees were quite friendly and professional. We ate lunch and had several drinks and everything was very good. The water is so clear and refreshing. The sand feels like powdered silk and your feet literally sink into it. The sea is on one side with lots of waves, which were a bit rough... More

This cove is amazing; some of the most amazing colors of blues I've ever seen in water. You pay $10 US each per person. Or, you can pay in Jamaican (I believe it was 1000 Jamaican each at the time, which was a more favorable rate). There is food on the premises that is a little pricey, and you're not... More

One of the most beautiful places on earth. White sand, clear water and a small crowd. The ocean water turn into fresh water, where two swings and a rope swing sit. This is a safe place to enjoy the day. There is a small fee to enter but so worth it. One warning though, the water is COLD!!! The changing... More

A pretty beach in a beautiful location. Staff extremely friendly. A life guard is permanently on duty. There is a small fee for using this beach and it's facilities but this pays for the beaches, restaurant and restrooms maintenance which is why it is so clean, relaxing and peaceful. The price includes a chair - a bed can be bought... More

This is a really beautiful beach that is worth the 1000JMD$ entrance. It's very picturesque, peaceful and very well looked after. The facilities are good too. Restrooms that include a shower, waiter service on the beach and the sunbed hire very reasonable at 200JMD$ each.

I visited Frenchman's Cove with my boyfriend in this past June. The beach far exceeded my expectations. We arrived at the beach very early, around 10am. There was no one at the beach entrance charging the normal $10 entrance fee when we arrived. On the beach, we rented two lounge chairs for $5. There are servers that walk around to... More
