Nothing to see. Nothing like in the movie. We paid usd5 for entrance. But got at least a sunchair for this. The road down was really humpy.

If you want a decent quiet beach away from the maddening croud then try this one. Although the road to it is poor with a lot of pot holes it is worth the effort. The changing facilities are somewhat dated and with the small entrance fee you get an old but adequate sun bed. The bar is adequately stocked and... More

This former federal reserve bank is s beautiful setting for drinks. If you want a cocktail meeting place this is your destination. Service is impeccable. We ate a lot but we rank the carpaccio as the best we have had. So if you seek that, the GO! DJ

Been here twice now and it's a lovely little beach. It's 350jmd to enter which is fine and you get a lounger included. It's literally a small area of sand. You can see a lot of crabs alone the stone wall and plenty of fish too. Nice bar that plays music which adds to the atmosphere. Lovely views of houses... More

We went there for the day... fair entry price and for the lounge chairs. Check out Moonraker Bar. The beach is very small, but cozy.. and the water is nice and warm

It's very pretty it's small there is one Lytle place for drink and food but when I go to the beach I always take my own the children enjoyed putting their feet in no water without any crowds. It was pretty

A beach that is sort of private if you want to host a family get together or company sports day. Very seclusive has a tree house where you can host party, a place for sports running that 100m or even to have your own bbq, a place is provided there.

This beach has it all. Nice gentle cove with no waves. .....reggae vibes playing as you swim and float in the clear, emerald waters. The people are all very friendly and I had heard the opposite. The price to get in is beyond fair for the amazing grounds this place has. The bar has 2 floors of 360 degree views... More
