Love this beach, drinks can get a bit pricey, and when cruise ships are in, it can get a bit busy, but the waters are gorgeous and the beach is big. They put on a good music at night sometimes too. We go every time we're in Montego Bay.

My family of 4 went here on our own while on a cruise in Dec. We got in a taxi right off the cruise terminal, our driver's name was Ricky, and he was lovely. They gave us a 'deal' where they would drop us off and we give them a time and he came back to pick us up and... More

Have been there a number of times and staff is very annoyed with locals so of course they miss out on tips. The food is mediocre to horrible...inconsistent.

A nice place to spend a day at the beach, but in Montego Bay you have better, private beaches . Ideal to visit it.

My husband and I spent an afternoon at Drs Cave beach ( entry 600 JA ) and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! I am a sun bunny so immediately settled into a lounger( 600 JA) and my husband joined a group snorkelling on a glass bottom boat( $20 USD) for an hour. The atmosphere is very laid back , everyone is really... More

Very soft sand, lots of coral, able to feed fish off the docks! Restaurant is amazing! Must try their smoothies! Beautiful water, sand and people! Just watch out for when the cruise ships are in, because this place gets SUPER busy...

We came here while on our cruise. The shuttle driver kept trying to convince us to Tropical Beach, which is the beach the locals go to. It sounded like fun, but we were with kids, and thought it was best to go to a tourist spot. It was a $7 shuttle ride there. $6 to get in, and about $20... More
