Overview

A famous Jamaican landmark, this breathtaking picture-perfect white sand beach is a tropical slice of heaven. Lounge chairs are lined along the seashore, some grouped amongst shady random clusters of hundred year old almond and palm trees, while others are arranged closer to the waters edge. Enjoy soft reggae music and great Jamaican hospitality. A large bamboo bar offers exotic cocktails and beverages, and the seaside restaurant serves tasty local cuisine.

We visited on a weekday and were really lucky to have the beach almost to ourselves. We spent the day lounging/reading/walking and just having the most peaceful day. We enjoyed a delicious lunch before we left. Worth a visit.

This is an absolutely lovely beach, however, when we went it was extremely busy and the poor bar girl was run off her feet! The VIP area has the best part of the beach as the other side is rather rocky. All in all a...More

It was absolutely beautiful and our guides were awesome! Shennell was very outgoing and taught us how they phrase some things in Jamaica and how they do things over there. The beach staff was definitely on point and there more food faster than you could...More

Very expensive for what it was. Food tasted nice but it was a basic meal at an expensive price. Nice clean enviroment with a beautiful view. Staff were accomodating.

We were very happy to swim there, as the day was hot. A very nice and beatiful caribbean beach. The water was warm and clear.

This beach is quiet and beautiful. Shopping insight. Unlike most businesses in the nearby area, these people have good customer service and are very helpful. Would spend my whole day there next time we are in port.

Our hostess, Hermony, was the very best hostess. She was very attentive, entertaining, informative, polite and just an overall great PR! You will not be disappointed!

They have a regular package, I believe for about $45 and a more expensive deluxe package. Do waste your money. Terrible beach, seating, and food. A few dancers rotate around. Awful, awful, awful!

I would say no! Not worth it as we did that as a part of a tour and we all got the same lunch/beverage.
