Maybe one of the most beautiful beaches in the whole of Jamaica! Small, secluded, surrounded by stunning and lush vegetation! The stream with cold water on the side gives a nice touch of freshness!

Good parking and very well kept grounds. Stunning scenery, the lush tropical trees are so tall and old in this area. The colour of the emerald river merging with the blues of the sea against sugar like sand in this beautiful bay were just mesmerising....More
