“Good beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Adjoining Doctor's Cave so fairly similar. Here one can book a 3-hour catamaran trip that includes a stop for snorkeling.

“Horrible excursion”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

I have done many excursions in the past and by far this is the worst!!! First off they tell you where to sit , the lady doing all the games/activities was basically yelling at people over the mic, which did not make any of us 5 want to participate. Then after being there an hour 2 huge cater-meran boats came up on shore and blocked us from the beach and took up 1/2 of the beach we were allowed to go on. The food was okay, the beach was small, the service of the staff was horrific. Oh and to top it off, after paying $89 for the "snorkel excursion" and putting you in the hot sun with no shade, they charge you $10 rental per snorkel and $10 to use 1 beach umbrella. Really Really disappointed. The picture with the excursion is basically the extent of the beach BUT they cram 6 rows deep of people to make it really really crowded. This excursion ruined my trip to Jamaica and left me a very bad memory of this port. Trust me, book with another tour company and DO NOT GO TO THIS BEACH!!!!!!! Way way overpriced!!

“Nice Beach, Not the Greatest but Okay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

This is a small beach just off the main strip in Montego Bay. It is not the nicest beach I've been to but not at all crowded. There is a small entrance fee, but it is worth it not to be over run by a lot of people. There is music playing, you get to hang out with some of the locals. It is a must go to. I like it much better than Doctors Cave Beach, because it is not as crowded, you don't have to pay an entrance fee, a chair fee, an umbrella fee, etc. etc. etc.
