James Bond Beach was quite and very relaxing. There is a Dj and a few shops but no one bothers you. People are able to swim, paddle board, kayak, or just sun on the beach. The entrance fee was $3.50 US for locals and we...More

Just a 5-10 minute beautiful walk out the back side. Great food and drinks at a gorgeous, uncrowded beach that you can charge to your room. Great music too! Don't miss it.

Taxis in Jamaica are NOT like English taxis... you would be best with private taxi then you have it to yourself...JBB is quite a drive from centre of ochi so negotiate a return price..
