Access to Public Beach (Cardiff Hall) Jewel Paradise Cove

I was wondering if there is easy/walking access from the JPC resort to the longer public beach beside JRB? We are trying to decide on a Jamaica destination, and have only been to Negril previously. We LOVED the access to the long walks on the beach, and are wondering what is available at Runaway Bay.

If JRB is the old BRB, very easy. Just walk out to the beach and turn right.

No there is no direct access from Jewel Paradise cove only from Jewel Runaway Bay which is an amazing resort!

Thanks. Yes, the Cove looks pretty isolated on the beach side (from Google earth). Is it feasible to walk out on the street side, and walk over to the beach? That side also looks pretty isolated.

Oh sorry is JPC the old Hedo? That would require walking on the road, but not terribly far. The area I think of as the main public beach, where Flavours restaurant is, is between the two.

From looking at the map, it looks like Flavours would be the best spot to enter the beach when walking via the road from JPC. Correct? How long would this walk take or what is the approximate distance? It is hard to tell looking at the satellite image

Walking from the lobby of JPC to Cardiff Hall Beach, which is also the location of Flavors...... should take 20 - 25 mins walking at a leisurely pace. Once you exit the driveway from JPC..... turn right and follow the sidewalk, you cant miss it. On your walk there, you might be approached by individuals who may offer to show you where the beach is........ for a fee of course...... which is quite unnecessary........

Hope that helps.........

Is the Jewel Paradise Cove a private beach, and are there any outsiders selling things on the hotel beach?
