“Don't really want that many knowing of the place but...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

It's only fair to tell people who want to get away from the main beach. The water is great for snorkeling or a dip if you get too hot, the bar serves ice cold drinks and the restaurant does a fantastic grilled lobster ($18 US for a whole lobster).

From the roundabout its 15 miles north, towards MoBay. You can take a route taxi but probably easiest if you call and ask for a ride or negotiate a taxi. Be aware too that the Wild Thing cruises stop their for lunch, so it can be busy between 11-1, but after that, you will just be sharing the beach with at most a dozen people. Say hello to the twins if you go :)

“Didnt like it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2011

The beach was dirty, full of cigarette ends and the water wasnt clear. There was two big aggresive dogs on the beach and in the water, people sunbathing nude (whiole we had our children with us) and smoking weed.

“A DAY IN PARADISE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2011

No crowds, no beach salesmen, and excellent bar and restaurant serving a whole grilled lobster dinner for $18.00 USD, here is a prefect spot for some awesome beach time! Only a short drive from Negril.

“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

We brought our snorkeling things and went out a bit. It was nice. The drinks were not good at all. We didn't have lunch. The live music was nice, but 2 boats of people came in so it wasn't really private but we heard that that was unusual. Everyone was very nice.
