A nice place to spend a day at the beach, but in Montego Bay you have better, private beaches . Ideal to visit it.

My husband and I spent an afternoon at Drs Cave beach ( entry 600 JA ) and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! I am a sun bunny so immediately settled into a lounger( 600 JA) and my husband joined a group snorkelling on a glass bottom boat( $20 USD) for an hour. The atmosphere is very laid back , everyone is really... More

Very soft sand, lots of coral, able to feed fish off the docks! Restaurant is amazing! Must try their smoothies! Beautiful water, sand and people! Just watch out for when the cruise ships are in, because this place gets SUPER busy...

We came here while on our cruise. The shuttle driver kept trying to convince us to Tropical Beach, which is the beach the locals go to. It sounded like fun, but we were with kids, and thought it was best to go to a tourist spot. It was a $7 shuttle ride there. $6 to get in, and about $20... More

This beach is very nice. It has a great vibe and everyone here seems super relaxed. It does get crowded as you get a lot of tourists from the cruise ships. However, in the early evening the crowds leave and the sunsets are amazing. You must get you a fresh coconut and drink from it and watch the sunset. Take... More

We had a pass through our hotel. Could work out expensive if you have to pay to get in, pay for Umbrella , pay for bed. The water and sand is beautiful . Food in the beach cafe was good and toilets clean

We felt compelled to visit since we were staying in MoBay. This beach was our least favorite of the three we visited though. The entrance fee was relatively high and tourists swamped the place. As soon as you walk in, staff members ask you how they can help, which seems great until you've been asked by 10 people when you've... More

This beach is super beautiful. Small I thought though. We were here to do some snorkeling and I thought the water trampolines were great if you had a family and kids here. But truely beautiful water. Lots of shopping and restaurants really close.
