Nice beach.

Just a mention. This beach is no longer a public beach. It is now owned by Decameron Resorts. We had access to it because we stayed at the sister resort next door.

Quite good snorkeling straight off the beach, with watersports available including escorted speed boats, hobycats etc.

Not a fan of this location as it is popular among scammers and people who just do not know how to conduct themselves.

It's not the easiest to get out of for older people and children. Not a smooth beach some small rocks on shore and in water

We were just at the Decameron Mo-Bay and can't wait until the Cornwall beach property (next door) is completed. The shell of the building was up, and we were able to go to the beach to take a look. This will be the place we go on our next visit to Jamaica...

This a lovely stretch of beach adjoining the Doctors cave beach. it is now closed as hotel is under construction on the property and so there will be no access other than through the hotel.

As I said before a beach is just a beach, we were at MBJ family fun day it was a extremely hot day, did not enjoy it then, the kids however did not seem to mind.

Over rated, security guards asked us to leave or pay them, we were guests at the Royal Decameron next door and were told we could not even walk on the beach without paying, tourist trap... were not impressed.
