A little walk from the main road through a nice neighbourhood, but may be hard to find. In late January we had to enter the water from one of two spots as not to walk over sharp rocks. Pretty blue water, deep but fun to swim in. If you are one of few tourists you may be hassled, but has... More

One of the last beeches run by the local community and not turned into the commercial hotel property. At the Entrance a donation is appreciated. There are couple of small food joints and local sellers

You will experience the real people of the island at this truely Jamaican beach. Jerk chicken and beer can be had at a couple of stands there. They may ask you to give a little to help them keep the area clean but otherwise there is no charge. There is no good bathroom or changing room there. There is a... More

Beautiful beach close to Port Antonio and the Blue Lagoon. You have several options for food and drinks. The beach is free, but expect to pay the locals for keeping the beach clean.

I was excited about this beach first because it shares my mother's name. Did not worry about the steep entrance, the drivers are all familiar with it. The water is very still like a swimming pool and it's very warm and soft.... yes the water has a softness as opposed to the harshness of many salt waters. I may have... More

I am not sure how to describe this experience as there are no words. Beautiful, beautiful beautiful!!! Visited because we saw the CNN story. The road getting there is worth it. When you get there you understand why God is sooooo good. Met Ms. Cynthia as soon as we arrived she came out and greeted us. What a sweet soul.... More

Beautiful beach. A little harder to get to than some others, but the water is quiet since the waves crash further out on a reef. Food took a really long time to get made at the restaurant, so order early.

This Lagoon is as gorgeous as it looks in the photos. It has a small jetty and beavh as the only access between private properties. Swimming is lovely and there are warm water coming up, the colder river and salty sea.
