Lovely beach club on the Hip Strip with a nice restaurant and music. You must pay $6 admission, $6 for a chair and more for towels and umbrellas but there is natural shade there. The beach got very crowded in the mid afternoon with cruise ship passengers there for the afternoon. There is waiter service on the beach and it... More

I had to make a quick stop to get cash for my tour guide. I went into an ATM machine outside Doctors Cove. It looked like a regular bank ATM machine. There was a wooden door that locked. So I locked it when I went in. I felt like I was being really safe. I took my money out and... More

Everytime my friends and I visit MoBay, we HAVE to spend at least a day at Doctor's Cave. We love the bartenders at the bar (special shout out to Shammy and Akea)! The staff has great personality, they all make you feel like family and not just some guest visiting the beach. The water is BEAUTIFUL...I even got the opportunity... More

Like most clean beaches in Jamaica, there is a charge to access it. However it was worth it. Gorgeous soft sand, clear water and shallow - perfect for our 2 year old daughter :)

Okay I come from Australia so its pretty hard to beat our beaches... This is a great little beach but I do object to paying to get on a beach! I always turned right as you approach the area to pay to get into the beach and walk along to the bar restaurant where you can have a cooling drink... More

We took our three kids here in 83 degree weather on a bright sunny day and it was awesome the water is so clear the trampoline in the water seem to be very poplar if you are looking for a catamaran cruise or glass boat cruise I believe you can schedule it at this beach for a family of four...

Beautiful beach with a lot of tourists. Nice atmosphere. The snorkling isn't really good though. Good drinks and food is available right at the beach as the waiters come and take your order.

It was a bright hot sunny day with lukewarm clear blue swimming sea water with clean white sandy beach area and smiling servers ! The food &... More

I feel like this beach has been overrated by reviews. I didn't find anything special about this beach. The entrance fee that you pay is for people not to bother you and not have anyone soliciting you anything, that is not the case. A woman approached us asking if we wanted our hair braided, we said why not? (Thinking we... More
