We visited all the beaches in the San Antonio area, but returned to Winnifred as it was our favorite! Nice blend of locals and tourists, great food stalls and just a wonderful beach with calm, clear water. Wish I was there now!

We keep going back... we would like to get food from all vendors, but not possible! When the water is quiet, snorkelling is very good. Great ambiance!

This is the lovely local beach in the area, and so its free. Plenty locals come down at the weekend to play football, hang out and swim. The water is calm, the beach shacks sell great, cheap food and drink and its fun.

Even though this is a public beach, you will be asked for a donation to help maintain it. Lovely Bay. Good snorkeling. Cool river off to one side. Could be improved by moving the washrooms off the beach (horrible smell).

Public beach. Was very busy when we went. The beach and sea were clean. Changing facilities and toilets not so nice. Food from vendor was delicious. Spent a lovely afternoon here.

This is the first local beach I have been to in Jamaica that was hassle free. I wish I had enough time for lunch. Next time for sure

No entrance fee, parking available. Unfortunately dirty (waste). Big beach with shady trees. Vendors can be pushy

This is the beach where locals go. The entrance is free. There’s plenty of seaweed which makes the place look dirty, but the beach water is clear. I saw a pool of fresh water that runs directly to the beach and it is eroding the...More

Located about 20 min by mini cab from Port Anthonio. The taxi usually drops you off on the main road and you then need to walk on a decent track for 10/15 min to get to the beach. It is a little beach and is...More

I wouldn t count on the facilities. And you dont have to pay, although people will ask for or tell you to. But nevertheless the beach is amazing!
