I stayed on Beaches all-inclusive family resort for a week and it is an amazing, and beautiful country and culture! The people are always friendly and smiling and happy. The land is beautiful, the ocean is stunning. Never seen anything like it! Wish I could go back forever!

Trying to train for a marathon this is a wonderful place to grab a run early in the morning. It's slightly canted so be careful about your IT band. Otherwise it is wonderful! Very Serene. It is about two kilometers down and back from Moon Palace.

Relaxing, peaceful, scenic. Beautiful white sand, strategically placed seating for those who just want to sit and take in the view or to eat. It is one of the best experiences in Ocho Rios.

Low entry fees to beach area, reasonable prices for lounge chair rentals. Beach area is kept very clean, and there are also locals that sell beverages right on the beach at reasonable costs. Beach area is also close to some great shopping

When staying at the Palace Resorts on Ocho Rios Beach, you are right there, in the center of activity. All sorts of water sports available, or just soak up some rays!

I love ocho rios beach. Very clean, never overly crowded. Water sports are offered for a fee. There are always lots of locals on the beach that are very helpful and friendly. I was even taught how to play dominoes on the beach by some of the locals.
