Went to this beach 11 years ago and it was lovely. Now it is a bit sad and the outlook over the cruise ship dock is awful. You have to pay to get onto the beach.

The beach was clean as was the water. Its pretty open to all members of the public. This is my hometown so there was no harassment only pleasant smiles welcoming me.

I love this beach. Entrance is just few buks...beach has shade, sunbeds, don't expect something fancy. Around the beach u may go in some of the shops and stores and by something to bring at the beach with u. They offer some watersports activity.

As the main beach in town the small entrance fee is worth the money. The metal fencing at the west end isn't that attractive, but turn right on entering and there is more natural shade and surroundings.

We had a chance to go visit and it was OK! Not too thrilled with the beach, and too many people. But if you want to go to a nice beach you can go but I believe there's better beaches around

Entrance costs 200JAD/person. There is a small bar that serves drinks and you can enter the grounds of a hotel for a very expensive lunch. Sun loungers are overpriced and there is some water sports, but I never asked for the price.

Ochoa Rios Beach is gorgeous and with security not very scary. Of course pot sale was not totally restricted. Tourist from all over are present and not uncommon to see topless sun bathing. Didn't really bother me

Very beautiful beach- very clean, and gated. There are minimal vendors, but those that we encountered were polite selling seats on their glass boats or horse riding. Volleyball games were going on and was fun to watch. The beach itself has nice soft sand, the...More

Nice sand, with lots of trees, kids enjoyed the shallow waters, walked pass the entrance and go to the middle-middle end after the old concrete dock, less seaweed. If going back to Ocho Rios in a cruise stop would spend the day there for sure....More
