A famous Jamaican landmark, this breathtaking picture-perfect white sand beach is a tropical slice of heaven. Lounge chairs are lined along the seashore, some grouped amongst shady random clusters of hundred year old almond and palm trees, while others are arranged closer to the waters edge. Enjoy soft reggae music and great Jamaican hospitality. A large bamboo bar offers exotic cocktails and beverages, and the seaside restaurant serves tasty local cuisine.

We visited this beach, as the beach facilities at our hotel were not accessible and they made arrangements for us. The beach it self is quiet, clean and the waters were the tranquil Caribbean blue that everyone expects. Drinks and food were available for purchase.

We visited on a weekday and were really lucky to have the beach almost to ourselves. We spent the day lounging/reading/walking and just having the most peaceful day. We enjoyed a delicious lunch before we left. Worth a visit.

Very expensive for what it was. Food tasted nice but it was a basic meal at an expensive price. Nice clean enviroment with a beautiful view. Staff were accomodating.

We were very happy to swim there, as the day was hot. A very nice and beatiful caribbean beach. The water was warm and clear.

They have a regular package, I believe for about $45 and a more expensive deluxe package. Do waste your money. Terrible beach, seating, and food. A few dancers rotate around. Awful, awful, awful!

I would say no! Not worth it as we did that as a part of a tour and we all got the same lunch/beverage.

It depends on which dock you are coming into. Mobay is prob an hour and a half, minimum, Falmouth maybe an hour, and Ochi, like 20 minutes depending on traffic...
