Everything you could ever want in a Caribbean beach. Lush jungle. Low-key vibe. A gorgeous winding creek that empties out into the sea. And beautiful swings for soaring over the clear water. What a dream.

Favorite beach on our recent stay in Jamaica. Safe spot to swim with a staff at the hotel on the property who serve food and drinks to you on the beach. Will definitely be back!

I love this place! Such a beautiful beach where the river flows right into the ocean. They have swings in the river that's pretty nice for pictures. Food was good, make sure to order the BBQ Jerk Chicken with Fried Bammy!

Once again I took visitors to this lovely spot and as ever they were impressed. We were all hungry and although it was not busy, a quiet Tuesday, the service was still far too slow. We asked what would be quickest and easiest and were...More

Food and drink available. Unobtrusive and friendly staff. Not too packed. Refreshing warm/cold river under shade. We had a lovely day here.
