I go to Jamaica frequently to visit family. This used to be a lovely beach and accessible to all for a small fee. Last time I went the fee was higher, the lounge chairs dirty, and the catamarans that were launching, were leaking oil, so we ended up leaving quickly after realizing an oil slick that covered at least a...

Cornwell beach saw better days. It's ok to just hang out but it cost 20.00. Dated, deserted as well.

very nice beach near Royal Decameron hotel. Great snorkelling, beautiful sand and water! It wasn't overly busy or noisy when we were there.

Large and spacious. Lots of beach huts and lounge chairs. A bit of a walk from the hotel. Close to the lunch bar with help yourself beverages. Can be noisy from the sailboat's loud "music" picking up and dropping off cruise ship passengers. Could be anywhere from 1 to 4 boats with loads of people. Sand is a bit coarse... More

I stayed a week at royal Decameron and hung out on this beach everyday. I checked out doctors cave and dead end beach. Neither compare to Cornwall. Cornwall is so neat and tidy. Great sand. Nice bar. Music. Lots of new chairs. Shade umbrellas everywhere. Volleyball. Washrooms and showers. Highlight of my trip.

As part of the Royal Decameron Montego Bay this is a beautiful beach. Sometimes a little busy when the Cruise ship people come in but still lots of room to move. Lifeguards do a great job.

As another poster said sad to have to pay to get into some of these beach areas that is what makes negril great!! "Can't wait to be there next month". The music was loud and annoying 3 sets of cruise shippers ashore a few hours... Well organized outing but its gonna be a little less touristy and a bit more... More
