I went here right after Boston beach and it can't compare...1st off you have to pay per person, there are way more people, the water isn't as blue and there is seaweed all over the sand. There is a restaurant that serves the beach and it is decent. You can also negotiate a boat that will take you to the... More

Quiet little beach where you can spend the day mostly in seclusion. We had a boat drop us off and stay to the far right side of the beach so that we didn't have to pay. If you want to go on a more maintained portion of the beach you can pay about $300-$500 Jamaican ($2.50-$4.50 US) and enjoy the... More

The water is gentle and refreshing. Take a float or just bask in the sun. remember to ask for boxer to take you on a boat back to the world famous Blue Lagoon

We stayed nearby at Goblin Hill planning to spend a lot of time at the beach or take early morning walks there. However it is only accessible between 9-4 with a 1000 JD entrance fee per person. I can see it from my villa and it is usually deserted. Seems like they could do better being free and charging for... More

No industrial mess, just a clean beach with an incredible view of Alligator Head Rock! This beach is the perfect quite spot for those willing to leave the touristy beaches of Jamaica!

The beach itself could do with some TLC but the water is crystal clear and beautifully warm. The views out to sea are exquisite and the beach is wonderfully uncrowded. There is a small restaurant, where we ate some excellent fish. We spent hours and hours there and couldn't tear ourselves away.

A very eash to reach local beach. I hope that the locals will still continue to have access to this beach. It is good that food and refreshment can be purchased to eat. On occasions when I have visited the beach the quality of the water is not very pleasant. I have not visited it on this recent trip.
