I loved the beach it was clean and the water was beautiful, but if you are looking to relax and enjoy your time at beach it will not happen here. You have so many people that come up to you asking you to by "stuff"--literally every 5 minutes. Smoking is legal in Jamaica, so if you smoke marijuana that's great,... More

Beach was gorgeous. Water was torquise and clear. There actually was 2 fish that swam by my leg. Beach was packed due to ship docked. But worth the visit. Drinks were awesome. Yes you pay $6 for entrance. $6 for chair, umbrella each. Didn't get the chance to eat because everything I asked to order wasn't available.

The Doctor's Cave Beach is Montego Bay best beach. The sand is white, the water is clear and there are snack bars that provide all your favorite drinks and snacks. It is "Kid friendly" with a very alert life guard, perch on the top of a tower, in full view of all beach goers. Chairs and beach umbrellas are available... More

This was a good beach day, the beach was clean and surprisingly not packed with people (no cruise ship was in port). There is an entrance fee and have to pay Everything. The only thing included with the entrance fee is access to the beach. The water is beautiful and you can have bar service provided to your lounge chair

Nice beach but small controlled area. you can snorkel but for very basic beginners. 600 Jamaican dollars to enter ($5 US). Plenty of security. If you drive there is a Burger king down the street a few minutes walking, behind it is public parking for free.

I am a beach fanatic and in most cases in booking a hotel room is beach access. Directly across the street from the hotel was perfect. The sand was warm and the water was cool at first but eventually I adjusted to the temperature. Food, drinks, lounge chairs, and umbrellas were available. The views awesome one of my top five...

Visited Doctor's Cave Beach on my last day in Jamaica. It was a nice little spot to see the ocean and get in some sun. This sits along a shopping district, not too far from the resorts and within walking distance of Margaritaville with a waterslide upstairs. Cool place to stop if you are looking for a no nonsense tourist... More

Nicer than Negril beaches, in my opinion. Fewer tourists, except when cruise ships arrive, but still a really lovely local beach. $US6 admission; $US6 chair; $US umbrella. Great location with entrance on the shopping strip of Montego Bay. Restaurant offers food & drink. Toilets, changing rooms, outdoor showers
