The waves are very calm, the water is crystal clear, but there are very few fish to see, if you snorkel. There are a few lobster traps along the beach. You can buy fresh lobster directly from...

Walking along the beach in early morning was a favorite and visiting with the locals at times was amusing. Sometimes not so much. I did like the musicians walking along the beach and playing their reggae. It's a place I plan on visiting again. Enjoyable.

Bloody Bay is a great place to snorkel and sail, the waters are warm and inviting. Because of the way the cove is shaped, you don’t get a lot of high waves coming in so it makes a great place to learn how to sail. The water is deep and clear with allows you to see all kinds of sea... More

Where water shoes. Walk carefully. Sting rays and fish come in close to shore before bathers take over. Very squishy, muddy bottom. Lots of Jamaican Natives trying to sell items.

Beach is a nice stretch of white sand beach filled mostly by resort properties. EVERY SINGLE LOCAL not working for a resort is trying to sell you something. Respect Mon! Come here..Respect respect! and then are pushy and they try to sell you something. It gets pretty annoying when you are trying to have a romantic walk along the beach... More
