I enjoyed my stay at Sandcastles complex with exclusive access to the Ocho Rios beach. Sunloungers $600 Jamaican or $6 US. Lots of coconut trees to shade and carefully placed so sunbathers are not injured by falling coconuts! There are some beach vendors who offer glass bottomed boat rides, hair braiding, they accept a polite no and move on. Security... More

This beach is very quite and the water is nice and calm. the view from the beach is excellent. Specially when the big cruises dock in the bay. The sand is nice and clean and there are some tourist boats that offer many services.

We stayed at the Sandcastles resort and therefore had free access to the beach. It was a nice expanse of sand with calm, clean, warm water. If you want beach loungers, they are available for $5 and there are beach boys who will fetch you drinks and food. The beach can get busy when cruise ships are in port but... More

We spent one night in Ochi on our way through and it was terrible. Our hotel was on the main beach but we didn't even bother swimming. With all the incredible beaches in Jamaica I wouldn't even bother wasting your time.

We stayed nearby at Fishermans Point and we spent lot of time on the beach. It's clean, guarded, and there is an equipment/ boat rental place. The only negative is that the beach was very shallow. Otherwise, it was great.
