We took a water taxi to the little Island. There is only one man that cooks the Lobster Lunch ( chicken for people that don't eat seafood ) you pay cash for any food or drinks. It was the best Lobster I have had.

We hired a boat at our resort to take us to the Cay. Make sure you wear water shoes and a life jacket or waist float. Lots of coral, smaller fish, sea fans, stingrays and shells. We went early morning and stayed for about 2...More

I enjoyed a wonderful catamaran ride over to this island from a lovely little tour company I will review separately, but unfortunately the island itself was like rubbish tip - bottles, cans and wrappers strewn all over the place. This wasn't just recent rubbish either,...More

Uninhabited island with minimal beach (mostly rocks). Boats can be hired from the beach to take you to the island but it's Not worth visiting.

If you go to Negril- this is a great spot to hang and be quiet. Go early in the day as the tide and current both are down along with the tourist traffic

We were quoted $60.00 at the Rockhouse but we were charged $70.00, so confirm the price before getting on the boat. I could have argued, but $10.00 doesn't break me. I felt sorry for the guys and gave them the extra $10.00... More
