access to long beach from bloody bay

Hiya travellers!

Not having done the long beach walk, we'd certainly like to do it.

We're thinking of taking a cab to the roundabout, and walking along the beach back to bloody bay.

Is there a road-access point along the way? I know you can't walk along the beach the whole distance - we're at the Riu Palace.

hi and thanks - I'd seen those posts.

We are at the Riu Palace. So, we'd be looking for long-beach access from the road.

Neither of those posts provide an answer.

Cheers!

Or... walk thru Breezes onto the street and into Hedo. You will get an escort along the start of long bay until you depart their property. From their its clear walking for miles... if you choose!!!!!

You have public access between the road and the beach on Long Bay at the Long Bay Beach Park (a public park).

"Or... walk thru Breezes onto the street and into Hedo. You will get an escort along the start of long bay until you depart their property."

I doubt that Breezes will let you pass thru, not to mention Hedo.

Your best bet is to exit RIU onto Norman Manley Blvd and head south. It's fairly wide along there, so not much danger of getting hit.

Grab a can and start at the far end of long bay and enjoy your walk back, stop and have a drink, check out different resorts, note the ones you like etc its a great way to spend some leisure time

Cutting through Breezes and Hedos is wishful thinking. Catch a ride to Cosmos and start walking.

I was at Riu Tropical Palace last year. I went to the Bell hop in the lobby, he said they have a designated cab exclusive to riu. We took a cab to Margaritaville ($10 and a 10 min. ride) the driver said he'd be back in 3 hrs. And he was. It's located on the 7 mike stretch. Plenty to see.

I hope the $10 was the cost for two people round trip, not one way.
