“Relaxing Safe Clean Beach”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We chose this excursion while on the Oasis of The Seas cruise Oct 13-20th. The weather was perfect as were our host Jay and the others who work at Cornwall Beach to ensure we have a good time. Cold refreshments were available, and chairs and umbrellas were available for $5.00. This beach is located right next to the airport and amazing to watch the planes come in over the water to land right next to us.
The drive to get to this beach from the cruise port was 30-45 minutes but it was worth the drive and to learn the history of the island from our drivers was priceless. There are showers at the beach to rinse off the sand, a bar and a store with vendors outside the store selling local products. There is a guard on duty the whole time the beach is open to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable day at the beach.

“The Beach”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

It was closed for a number of years but is now available. Personally we think that beaches would be nice if they did not have any sand which gets into everything!!

“Lovely beach”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Great beach! An alternative to Doctor's cave beach which is right next door. The cornwall beach is on the hip strip in Montego Bay, recently renovated and reopened. Fantastic place. A little more rocky in places than Doctor's Cave next door, though, but more family friendly than Doctor's Cave as the water is more shallow at Cornwall.

“Wonderful family day at the beach”
Reviewed July 18, 2012


This beach borders the Doctors cave beach... it is separated by a wall. Great fried fish! Great service and it is a buck cheaper than Doctors Cave. I will be back here next time.
